To everyone I missed this holiday season, I hope your celebrations were fun, the food delicious, and the family gathered together.
This is my lovely granddaughter, isn't she growing up a lot? She turned 3 years old last August.
She was headed on Christmas Eve to a family gathering, so I convinced her to let me roll her hair in curlers, so she would be extra pretty for the party.
I was amazed that she let me put the curlers in at all, and that she let them stay in through her nap.
I'm also very proud of her little outfit, I sewed it for her. It has balloons and butterflies on it, a pinafore and ruffled capri pants.
Looks like her curls lasted a while!
When I took down the curlers, she stood in front of the full-length mirror shaking her head, admiring her curly hair.
I remember when I was younger, those pink foam curlers with the rod in the middle.
You'd have to sleep on them overnight, just to get a little wave.
And later, as a teenager, trying to get the natural curls out by putting orange juice cans in my hair.
Oh the things we do for beauty, huh?
In her case, she doesn't need much help.
But just the same, she's so cute with her curly top.
