Now, I have liked all the short hair cuts that I have ever gotten thus far (with the exception of when I was 3-4 and got a boy cut). It's always a shock and for some odd reason all the stylists I have ever had except for one have insisted on fluffing my hair up as much as possible and then have the hair curl under so that I look like a freakin' mushroom. Last night was no exception and all I could think of was, "wow, I look like the mushroom monster on Mario Brothers." This syndrome will pass as soon as I wash my hair and style it myself. But, I couldn't resist snapping a picture of it last night.

As some of you know, my hair grows like weeds. I have estimated that it grows approximately 8-10 inches a year. This makes it financially difficult to keep cute short hairstyles. A couple years ago I decided that I'll just grow my hair out and donate it to a company called "Locks of Love" that makes wigs for children who have lost all of their hair due to health reasons. This is the second time that I have done this over the last 3 years and it feels great! It also helps that a really fancy schmancy salon in downtown Bellevue called "7 Salon" cuts your hair for free when you donate to "Locks of Love."

Lily is really good at singing... at least we think so. :) She has been singing "I am a Child of God" from start to finish for a couple months now. Sometimes she sings it while she's playing with the piano and other times she likes to put on a performance. Arya pretty much enjoys doing whatever Lily is doing and has also picked up on a few songs from nursery and can follow along here and there. Today they put on a performance for Luke and I. It was so cute that we had to get a video of it!
Lily's 3rd birthday was on June 23rd. She ended up having 3 different celebrations - once on her actual birthday with just eveyone in the household. She got her trike and a fish that day. Then we celebrated it again with Zeke's family when she actually got her birthday cake and a beautiful pink dress (that she couldn't stop twirling in) from them. Then again with Luke's brother's family when we had ice cream and she got a HUGE Disney Princess coloring book and some cute PJ's. Quite the birthday week. Hopefully the number of parties for her will not match how old she is every year. :)
We tried to get her to name her fish, but I don't think she understands the concept just yet. She named her fish - Fishy. :)
