First Haircut

On Tues (27th Oct) Tiny had her first haircut! Poor little thing couldn't see!!! She was brilliant! Sat still. Didn't make a fuss at all!!!

Before (how funny is her expression in this photo?!!)
During

After
She thought it was all pretty good! A girl after my own heart!!!! I love going to the hairdressers!

I think the hairdresser was pretty vicious with her fringe (bangs, for my American readers!)... but it'll grow back! She cut the back into a nice little bob, and the sides are almost as long as the back... one more haircut, and it'll be all the same! Tiny has a kooky hairline, so the hairdresser had a bit of trouble knowing where to cut the fringe! Her hairline starts halfway back on her head!!! Anyway - I think she's very cute... and that's all that matters!
On another note: I went to see Mao's Last Dancer, the movie, last night, with a couple of other Mum's from our batch. I haven't read the book, but have heard it is very good. I liked the movie. Not the best movie I've ever seen... but it made me cry... so I guess the moviemakers did their job?!!! Gives a tiny insight to the Communism Regime, but somehow I think that the family would have received much more persecution than was portrayed in the movie? Anyway, was well worth watching - lots of subtitles, so I'm glad my hubs wasn't there - he hates subtitles!!! I actually liked that the majority of the movie was in Chinese... was nice to hear the language again...
I miss China. Can't wait to go back, one day.

Its been 8 months!

Holy Cow this year has just gone so fast!!! We're in October, already?!!! Crikey! Just a few more weeks and it'll be Christmas!!!

As is tradition... here is my monthly layout! (I used Vicki's Girly Girl kit... available at Scrap That Idea)

I thought I'd post this one too... just because I like it! I used RebeccaB's freebie kit, called Gypsy Rose... its soooo pretty!!! The picture was taken at Tiny's 2nd birthday party.


I also really like this photo I took today... haven't scrapped it yet!!


Here's little movie from today as well... just to give you a taste of a few seconds in my house!!!
