LIFE sleepover

Last night...

(Oh, and by the way, Vanessa...watching the "Lizzie McGuire Movie" made me think of you SO much. So many fun memories. I miss you.)

This morning after chocolate chip pancakes, we started on haircuts! Some were trims, some more drastic. All with parental consent.

9 haircuts...lots of hair.

Cheesy Ground Beef casserole for lunch

And then, the girls did makeup and glamor shots...

Then...they wanted to make me over. Eyebrows, nails, jewelry, clothing, hair, makeup...they did it all!

...and then they wanted me to pose like this...

My little models.

What an absolutely amazing time I had with these girls! Ah, they are just becoming more dear to me. To be honest, last night at 10:00pm, I was completely and totally exhausted after LIFE. I was wondering how in the WORLD I was going to make it through last night and then today. I was pleading for God to give me grace. Asking for help over and over again.

Oh and He loves to lavish it upon me.

Got home and felt way more energized than I had all day- and managed to get 7 hours of sleep, too! And today have felt more "alive" than I have in over two weeks! So blessed by the ways the LORD meets me and helps me. (I still plan to hit the hay early tonight...)

Doing all those haircuts made me SO MISS my job. Ah, I just love doing hair. It is so incredibly fun. But I'm enjoying this season as much as I possibly will be over soon!

The house is squeaky clean now and I anticipate a quiet evening with dinner alone (the other Gappers are away for the weekend serving Uni students) and possibly a movie. (We'll see how things actually unfold. =)

Hugs to all!
