During the weeks leading up to Halloween, he said he wanted to be a "scary clown" but at the last minute (right before I put on his make-up) he decided he wanted to be a "happy clown." So that is what he is!

Cheese Whiz

Okay, so we got some new family pics done and I just cropped myself to show off my new haircut. So enjoy this nice big head-shot of my cheesiness.

Here I am with the ugly little up-do I've been sporting lately. Once my hair gets to the point where I can pull it up in a pony tail, that's all I seem to do with it. I need a haircut! Something fresh, something cute, something EASY. Any ideas?
