Loved this style on my daughter and it was so easy. I twisted each side. Then put both sides in a ponytail at the back of her head. I then flipped the ponytail a couple of times to make the twists come down further.
My girls went to a Valentine’s Day party with their grandparents on Saturday. They wanted to make red velvet cake balls. So I let them make them all by themselves.(I put it in the oven and took it out) They were so happy and proud to make them all by themselves. I think they did a pretty good job, too.
At church we have secret sisters that we pray for and give little gifts to throughout the year. I thought this little Valentine was cute, so I just changed one word to make it work. I hope she has fun trying to guess who I am. You can find the printable here: Hello Lucky
For breakfast I made the girls homemade blueberry poptarts with a honey glaze.
I tried the heart ponytails in my youngest daughter’s hair.
This was our table all set for dinner. We had steak tips, twice baked cauliflower, and jello magic mousse with a hug on top. For dessert we had crockpot lava cake. The girls had pomegranate juice with a little sparkling cider. My husband and I just had the sparkling cider. It was a very good meal.
I used this free printable to wrap a chocolate bar for my husband.
Finally we made these little treats to give out with our Valentine Cards.
I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. I am so thankful to God for my family and for loving me first.
We started out this hairstyle by sectioning out some hair in the front, on both sides of her head. Then I took the rest of it and twisted it into a bun. Secure it with some bobby bins. Next braid one of the sections you sectioned off. Bring it around to the bun. Wrap any extra around the bun. Pin it in place. Do the same thing with hair that is left. Add a bow or a hair flower if desired.
This is just a simple topsy tail. Put the hair into a ponytail. Separate it a little right above the pony tail. Take the tail of your ponytail and pull it down through where you separated the hair. Pull the tail all the way through. Your done.
This is a fishtail braid. After I braided it, I loosened the braid by pulling at it.
This is my 2nd daughter. Her hair is normally curly but we had straightened it on the day the above picture was taken. It is also pretty thick. The hair styles I will show on this blog will probably be modeled by her. She really enjoys it when I do her hair. So she lets me play with it pretty often. She is also getting pretty good at doing styles in her own hair. I think I could only do a ponytail and a braid at her age. This is one we tried last week:
We started with her hair still pretty damp. This way we didn’t need to straighten it. Then we put it in a low ponytail. After that we did a topsy tail. Then we took her hair and tucked it into the top of the topsy tail. We then pinned it from underneath. Because of the length of her hair this took a little bit of extra effort.
Her hair was still damp that evening when we took it out. We will definitely do this style again. It was easy and it stayed in her hair even when she played and ran around. I hope you try something new in your hair or in the hair of someone you love soon.
My girls are really into headbands lately. With four girls we have quite a few around this house. I, however, couldn’t resist added one more to the mix.
I have seen quite a few projects on blogs and around Pinterest using zippers. I had never attempted any of them though. I thought it was time to give one a try. This tutorial http://designbynight.blogspot.com/2011/03/in-zip-zipper-flower-tutorial.html was very easy to follow. I wish that I had ironed my zipper as it had been stored curled up but if your zipper is stored flat you shouldn’t have any problem. I would say this project took me about 10-15 minutes. If you do this project I would love to see your results.
