Hair Style and Other Fun

Joeliana's hair has been so dry, so I mixed up something I had heard of...I mixed together some coconut oil and Shea Butter together. When I braided her hair I put lots of the mixture in her hair. Unfortunately, I was out of my styling cream, so I don't expect this style to last very long. Still it is better to keep her hair braided while I am trying to get it healthier and longer.

Joeliana and Alia love when their hair had beads in it. I always have several helpers loading the beader for me when it is time.

I always tell the girls how beautiful their hair is and every time I get a style finished Landon and Garett tell them how beautiful they are. It is so cute watching them walk around with their little heads held high.

Beautiful storm clouds heading out east.

God makes some amazing artwork!

My precious Alia Marie turned 5 this week. What a blessing she is in my little princess.


  1. Very cute hair! I wish I could borrow your helpers at hair time!! :-) I'm waiting as long as I can to do Sarah's hair so that it will last on the plane and once we get to Uganda :-)

  2. You might be surprised how well the coconut oil and shea butter work!

    She looks precious! Happy 5th Birthday Alia!

    The storm cloud photos are amazing - nothing comes close to the mighty work of our Father!

    Hugs and love,

  3. Adorable hair!

    When I put my girls' braids in I coat their hair with 100% Aloe (clear gel bought at Wal-Mart) before each braid. It has really helped to keep their hair moisturized and we don't get any breakage when we take the braids out.

  4. It was so nice to meet you today! You are just as I would have imagined you to be, warm, gracious, gentle natured. Your family is beautiful!! Our kids enjoyed playing with your little ones.

  5. Wow, good job with her hair!!! When I try to do something fancy with Sylvie-Aganoti's so much falls out, that I stop. I am not pulling hard, it just comes out/breaks off. We are sticking to barrettes... Anyway, the braids and beads are beautiful! Crystal

  6. You do a great job with their hair! It looks great!

    And those storm clouds are amazing!

    Happy Birthday to your little princess!

  7. Happy 5th birthday Alia!!
    I love their hair-it's so pretty!

  8. What do you normally use to keep the frizzies down?

  9. You did SO GREAT. I am in AWE!!! Oh I wish I lived closer to you so you could teach me!! GREAT JOB- you are such a good mom!
