grandma sweetheart

We just had the most wonderful impromptu visit from my mom. She and I were talking last Monday about when would be a good time for a visit. We were both searching the Internet for good prices. She entered in the next day just for kicks and found it was a excellent price. So she flew out Tuesday night! We had so much fun. We talked, she taught me how to make her bread, she wrestled with the kids, we went shopping, she sent Zac and I out on a date then cleaned the whole house while we were gone, then the next day she took the kids to the beach while we had our Open House! She really was a life saver and came at the perfect time. I really enjoyed having a friend to hang out with all week long. Love you Mom!

While she was here she did Anne's hair everyday. Everyone was totally amazed by all her diferent hair styles. Anne just loved it. Whenever anyone would say anything to her about her hair she would tell them, "My grandma sweetheart is here visiting and she does my hair now." She was so sad when I just did her hair today in a plain old ponytail. I guess there are just some thing that only grandmas can do. This is the hair do that she did on Anne on Sunday for church. After church Anne insisted on doing Grandma's hair. See the picture above.

Your Mom is a whiz at hairdo's-I still remember Havalah and Sierra coming to our seminary class and their hair was always so cute and perfect and it was like 6am!!!!!!

Sounds like you got just what the doctor ordered, a visit from Mom. And it sounds like she spoiled all of you too! Also, with almost 5 daughters, I would pay big money to have her hair fixing skills and to learn how she gets them to hold still long enough for it to look so great!!! :) Amazing!

Dad just wanted a picture of all those different hair dos! But alas no digital camera back in those day.
Thanks for taking a few pictures for posterity.
And thanks for sending Mom home. It was truly lonely around here.
Love
Dad

Your Mom is one talented lady! Geez! What doesn't she do?! And Kuddos to Anne--she looks like she's a budding hairstylist too! Love it! Laughed out loud and can't wait to see how they look in a few years.

It was so fun to come see Joy and the grandbabies, their wrestling, and kisses and fun talks with Joy was simply the most enjoyable trip in Hawaii thus far!! If life just gets better then I CAN"T WAIR!! I love you guys!! Especially the last dance with Zac...(We all danced around in the living room to music)
