Sasha got a new haircut yesterday. She had brought in a ton of pictures and this is what it came out like. She wanted shorter hair....but now that it is cut, she wants her long hair back. I think it looks really pretty. She now has to get used to having shorter hair.

Friday the 13th is always supposed to be a bad thing, right? Well normally I would agree with you. However, 17 years ago on this very night, a wonderful thing happened to me. Dave was working the late shift at work, then came over to my house after that. This was the night that he proposed to me. Dave got down on one knee, professed his love for me and asked me if I would do him the honor of marrying him. After saying YES, he proceeded to kiss me. I thought I was hearing fireworks in the distance in affirmation of the monumental event that had just happened. In actuality, it was a drive by shooting that happened three houses down from mine. In about one minute flat, there were no less than 9 Pierce County sheriff's in front of my house. So...not only do we fondly remember the time and date of our proposal, but the drive by shooting that happened moments afterward. So...a great thing happened on Friday, August 13th.....
Last night was a really cool one. I took the kids out at 11pm and we drove down to Dupont and parked at Pioneer Middle School. We took blankets and laid out under the stars for a couple of house. There were a billion shooting streaks in the sky. They would all come..then in the blink of an eye, they would streak across the sky then vanish. It was totally awesome to look at the grandeur of God's creations. As we were leaving, we noticed that there were two deers getting ready to walk across the soccer field. All in all, a perfect night for making family memories.
