We Are Supposed To Be Doing Laundry...

Well, it's a beautiful Monday morning and Grace and I have NOTHING to do today. The plan was for us to get the house cleaned up and do about 4,000 loads of laundry. Hmmm...the plan did not get off to a good start, because Grace wanted to have her hair "pretty." She requested that I do a little something with tiny rubber bands (I think she keeps waiting for me to whip some braids into her hair...unfortunately, that's not going to happen any time soon - this momma has a lot of learning to do first). We came up with this very festive style and I think it turned out really cute. She loves the pumpkins and at least we got to use two rubber bands (although she really wanted to use three).
So, one load of laundry in and now it's time to clean...right? Right... Play doh instead. Then we saw the sun shining and the leaves calling our names. Why not just go outside for a little while to take a few cute pictures?

Sorry Grace, we really need to go inside now for some lunch and a nap. Huh? Not her idea of fun. I didn't take a picture of what ensued. So, with Grace asleep now I guess I should quit looking at blogs and do the remaining 3, 999 loads of laundry that are waiting for me ;)

NECKLACE UPDATE...We have sold more than half of the number of necklaces to meet our initial goal. Please keep the orders coming. The necklaces and key chains really are cute. I promise to add another cool design later today or tomorrow...here's a hint - bottle cap necklaces aren't just for little girls...


  1. Cute pics! I should have stayed home like you did, instead I dragged Bereket on tons of errands and he wasn't happy.

  2. Okay....my thought.....your laundry will wait--just ask me. :0)

    Also, you are right about the necklaces and key rings NOT just being for girls....my almost 10-year-old boy wants one!! I have a feeling I'll be placing quite a few more orders. I accidentally ordered a diff. one than I thought the last time, but I LOVE THEM ALL!!! And such a great reason! So count on several more from your friend Kendra. Also GREAT teacher's gifts for Christmas!!! Who wouldn't LOVE Ethiopia!

  3. Beautiful fall pictures! I love it! We have had so much rain that our leaves are all soggy - boo! She is just SO precious!

  4. OH, what a cutie!!!! I love the hair style. :o) We are getting a lot of hair over here, and it sure is getting time consuming. Rayne is like your daughter - she is desperate for rubberbands in her hair!
