Well, I was planning on going to meet Bailey today, but his mommy is sick today and so we couldn't. To help myself get over the disappointment, I got a hair cut.

I didn't let Brilyn do it, although she obviously has talent in the cosmotology area.
The cool thing is, I went to Transformations in LeRoy like I always do, and who is there to cut my hair, but Heidi Kollarik! YAY! And, no offense to others who have cut my hair in the past, but, she did an absolutely fabulous job, really the best short hair cut I have ever had. I must recommend her.
My kids like to ride the vaccuum, and they are really cute, so here is a picture of that.

I love living on our little ten acre patch. There are so many really cool things about it. Here's a new one- we have black cherry trees. And they produced like crazy this year.

So, besides the gallons of cherry coridal we made (bet you want to come to my house around Christmas, don't ya?) I made a really quite beautiful cherry pie. I have never made one before in my life, so you have to understand how proud I am. And, it tasted as good as it looked.

And, I set it on the window sill to cool.

And then Joe took my picture. He didn't take it the way it appears here (ahem). I um, cropped it because my face didn't look very good. And that's the truth. So note to self and anyone else who has never pitted cherries by hand before...they spit at you. DON"T WEAR A WHITE SHIRT! Nasty little buggers.

Here's the recipe for the pie: Never mind, it was too good, I can't tell you.
And finally, please vote on Cade's hair...
Thanks folks!

Joce,
I did the same thing today - picked & pitted cherries! We have a big tree in our backyard. I can agree with the spitting cherry juice, but oh are the cherries worth it!
Love,
Courtney

I've been trying to vote on Cade's hair...the last option...and it is refusing to take my vote. I guess that means your blog thinks you should cut his hair toot sweet, even though I think you should not cut it until you think it's gross.

TOOT SWEET!
I find that really stinking funny.
And, I wrote down your vote in my head, so I can tally it up at the end.
XOXOX

The pie looks great!! Wish I was there to try some, though I would feel guitly eating any of it. You doing all that work pitting ALL of those cherries, ruinning a good white shirt, fingers turning red, but only to be polite if you asked, tee-hee. As for Cade's hair you could look at this way... Curls for the babybook? Or it might come in curlier after you cut it? Wither way you look at it, no matter what you do, when he gets much older he'll complain about your decision, so it's a MaMa's choice!

Hey Rory-
Good to see you here.
Of course you could have a piece, that's why I made it- to share. So share I did, with me, myself, and I. LOL.
XOXO

XOXO
