A friend of mine is working with toys for tots. The Marines will be delivering toys. If we can still get clothing donations that will be awesome!
Thanks again Amber for getting Toys for Tots in on this!

A family close to where I live has just lost their home due to a fire. Not only is this fire a devastating loss to the family but they lost a 9 year old child as well due to complications of the H1N1 virus just before Halloween. The mother had mentioned that all the kids Christmas gifts have also been lost in the fire. Their two children, ages 4 (girl) and 13 (boy) were home at the time but managed to escape unharmed.
You can view the news article here.

I am putting together a clothing and to y drive for the kids to be delivered on Christmas Eve. You can also send any donations to the family directly to Jennifer (Kitchen) Kuesters father STEVEN KITCHEN at 155 East 800 South Orem, 84059

The children are a 4 year old girl and a 13 year old girl.

I am asking for donation of new or gently used clothing, new toys and books, blankets, coats, etc. If you would like to bring them to me email me at kristiceron at yahoo dot com and I will send you my address.

I have emailed to the family and am waiting a response for clothing and shoe sizes. I will update this post when I get that information.

Easy Up!

Here's another very easy, elegant updo.

Start with a pony tail making sure that the hair is smooth and there's no bumps.
Next, flip the pony tail into an upside down topsy tail.
Smooth the hair down over the topsy.
Secure with a clip.
If the hair is long enough curl the hair that is coming down from the clip.
And there you have it.
This is one that is perfect for any age. I actually do this on myself for church!

Simply Elegant

This is probably one of the easiest dos here! I've seen it around in the malls and even on commercials this holiday season. I think it probably looks best with the hair curled but Zay really protested the flat iron this morning so we left it straight.

Make sort of a slanted part to the side.
Pull all the hair off of just one side into a pony tail.
Make sure you leave the rest down.
That's it. It's that simple!
And as you can see this works great for babies too! Look hoe curly Maddie's hair has gotten!

I made this video compilation of some of my favorite dos. And because my blog would not be where it is today without all my hair blog friends I even have a few of you featured at the end of the video! (sorry, I didn't have room to feature more or I would have! I'll feature different blogs on the next video)

Baby Twists

Here's a very easy way to make a topsy tail twist in baby hair! It works so well on Maddie's hair I had to share it! Look at how big my little princess is getting!
