ribbons & bows

It has been a million years... another lifetime ago... since I tied her hair up in pigtails. But today... just for fun... we sat down again, just us, with the comb and assortment of colored hair elastics. Who knew that sitting down with my girl would bring on such nostalgia?

So off she went... in pigtails and streamers and a growling grin... for Homecoming at the 'Ridge. Go bears!

So cute. I love her hair like this...I also love her school spirit. Lo had some ribbons this morning too...luckily she did not ask me to do them at 6 am, for I would be the growling bear. :)

I bet the ribbons and bows brought back great memories of times past. Hope she has fun at the big game!!!

You know, I can never listen to Martina sing that song without blubbering. I remember ribbons and pigtails from long ago. And I remember them from earlier this year. Both times made special memories. BTW, she looks really cute!

It's so fun sometimes to go "backwards" and enjoy things with our older kids for which they may have outgrown the need, but not the pleasure...for them or us! Such cute pigtails and bows :)
