Tutti-Frutti Tango

Can you say heaven-on-earth? I'm pretty sure that's what we girls experienced today... For Christmas, Mom treated us to a pedicure or manicure at a local salon, based on how ticklish our feet were! (ok, not quite, but that is why I received a manicure. I don't think whoever was doing my feet would want a broken nose...)

I'm not normally one for incredibly girly-girl activities. Haircuts, I love, I will admit that, but usually my style is more laid back and subtle. That said, I think Mom created a monster today ;-). I could get *very* used to the pampering we received! We were all giggles and grins picking our colors out, and the ladies there made the comment that they could tell who was oldest/middle/baby by the colors we picked. Mine being a more light and airy pink (as was Mom's), Rachie's was a bright purple/pink fuchsia, and Shorty went for a deep blue with some added "pizzazz"!

I don't think we will soon forget this first spa day together... Shorty has decided that it must become a ritual among us, and I whole-heatedly agree! It was definitely a day to remember =)

(I love this girl!!)

Earthly Face

"To Love another person is to see the face of God" 
~Jean Valjean (Les Miserables)

When you Love someone that you don't want to Love... You can not only see Him work in them, but He will also work in you, too. He is too holy for us to be able to look upon His actual face while we are here on this earth, and this is one of the ways that He has chosen to show Himself to us.
