Family of faces

This is my brother with his newest freaky beard-thing. I love that he always has a new facial hair-do every time I see him. He even has names for them. He told me the name for this one but I was too intently focused on the big beard-void in the middle of his face to hear him.

He was even nice enough to try making little curly ends on his mustache at my request but we didn’t have any mustache wax so used lansinoh instead.

Turns out, lansinoh is not an appropriate substitute for mustache wax (go figure).


This is the face of someone who hasn’t napped in 3 days. Esme is ready to enthusiastically throw her afternoon nap to the wind.

Not pictured: my very unenthused face over saying farewell to afternoon craft time.


Finally, the mud-splattered face of a very happy boy after a rainy day bike ride. Boy + bike + rain = all is right with the world.


And one last peek at the ‘face’ of this quilt before it’s backed, quilted and bound…the home stretch!

ha ha ha...i laughed out loud at the thought of him rubbing lansinoh on his bread.

sorry esme has given up on napping. my daughter has never been a napper, so i know your pain all too well.

Ahhh the loss of nap time! I can remember how much I would get done back them during that time. I love the pics of the kiddos!

That photo of Esme is adorable! Sorry about losing nap time though. I'm afraid ours won't hold out much longer...

Naming facial hair do's really cracked me up. I was never a napper...only imagine what I was like when I was Esme's age!!

Cute pic of Esme! That transition to no nap is hardest on mama for sure!

It's called "Friendly Chops." The difference between that and mutton chops is the mustache connector.
