THE FUTURE DOES NOT HOLD...

The future does not hold a career as a makeup artist for Halainah.

I was on the phone with my brother today having one of our "every other day" check in calls. Halainah was in and out of every room. She was opening draws, I was closing them. She was opening doors, I was closing them. I have no idea how her little hand grabbed a tube of long lasting lipstick (my favorite color may I add) out of a drawer in the bathroom. But she did. I was in a rush with my brother because Halainah and I were meeting a good friend of mine and his two daughters at a nearby park. I hung up with my brother and my dad called. So we chatted for a few and I told him that I had to go but he was in the middle of a sentence. So as he was talking I walked into the TV room and all I said was, "Oh my God....Oh my God." So of course my dad thought something was terribly wrong. I quickly told him that Halainah got into a tube of lipstick and said I had to go. And this is what I saw:






The worst part was that it was the long lasting lipstick. It is so hard to get it off of your lips never mind all over your body. I tried soap and water but that didn't work. Then I remembered that I had my mom's makeup case (for new readers...my mom passed away 5 years ago). In the case she had Mary Kay makeup remover. So I tried a little...and it worked well. Thank you so much Mom. So I soaked Halainah in makeup remover and gave her another bath. Why is it that this stuff happens when you have someplace to go. Ughhhh.

Anyway, I have been so busy lately. Searching for a job and ways to make some of our bills lower which is really hard work. It consists of many phone calls. And this weekend at my friends birthday party for her 2 year old son I realized that our China doll is about to turn 2. This will be the very first birthday we celebrate with her. I want to make it special. So I have been busy trying to make plans and find invitations and pick a date. Well the date is picked...November 7th and the guest list is prepared. But I still need to find a place and that's not an easy thing. So wish me luck and hopefully I will be able to update our blog more often soon. I have a ton of pics. from when my brother and our German relatives were here. I'm so sad that summer is almost over!

D, Let me recommend a place for you for the princess's birthday. We have them down here and they are great. Pump It Up. It's one of those inflatable playground places and they even are big enough for the adults to enjoy (adults are free too). Personally, I think Mark and I had more fun than Devon did, but that obstacle course will kick your tail! It you google it you can find it. It appears they have four in NJ. Talk to you soon!!!

I actually make invitations. I would love to do something personalized for Halainah as my gift to her for her second birthday! You can see a little of what I do at http://www.photo-stork.com. My website is a mess at the moment since I have also gone back to teaching, but you get the idea.

I died laughing at the lipstick thing. I think baby oil works well if I remember correctly.
