Monica's 'do

Ok, so I have to admit that we are rarely on time to church. And by rarely, I mean never. We manage to get there just before or during the opening song. But we're not too proud to walk in late and walk straight to the front. Monica behaves better the closer to the front we are. I think it has something to do with minimal distractions in front of us. Of course, that never stops her from turning around to see what the families sitting behind us are doing. We're working on it.

So last night, before bed, Ryan and I discussed a new plan to make sure we got to church on time. Now that we moved to 11 we figure there is no reason under the sun that we shouldn't be able to make it on time. So our plan is that we all have to be ready by 10. Which means I'm doing hair by 9 for Monica and me. Today, we tried it out.

SUCCESS!

Not only was my hair totally dried and styled, (not well, but straight down is still a style, right? At least there weren't any kinks.) but I had time to do a surprisingly cute style on Monica. I took a picture because I was so pleased with the outcome!

AND- to top it off...We were at church 15 MINUTES, -not seconds- early. Yeah, we rock! Now to carry the resolution through the rest of the year...

Okay...I'm officially jealous. I never did learn how to do cool girl's hair! Poor Brooke :-(

I LOVE your main picture too! So adorable!

Good thing Kyle doesn't read your blog (or any blog for that matter) b/c he might get ideas that I should make it to church on time. I almost think it's unnatural for anyone to arrive at church early!

BTW, your dream was wonderful! What a great story!

Way cute hair do! yeah we have to be on time... or atleast 15 minutes early to help set up chairs in the gym, and I have to set up chairs in the primary rooom... and we have to leave our house by 8:15am OUCH! Awesome on being on time, since LATE is your middle name.. LOL!

Her hair is SOOO cute Anna!!!! I may have to copy even if it won't look quite the same in Lexie's fine hair. And great job on being on time to church. Getting yourself and 2 girls ready is no easy task (trust me I KNOW!) I just wish it was Baumholder Branch you were early to! :)

Super cute! She has amazing hair...just like her mama. Good job on making it there so early. We have church at 11 as well but we don't usually get there early. Gotta work on that.
