Hi Lo: January 29th


1) We went to a local children's musical group on Saturday, and both John-Paul and Eamon volunteered for and got called up on the stage. They were turned into an alien and an astronaut, respectively. I'm so proud that they are not too shy to do things like this!

J-P is in the purple wig

Eamon always stands like this, with both hands behind his back :)

2) Phil became a Knight of Columbus. He was inducted in a super secret ceremony on Tuesday night. I think they have to make everything top-secret just to get men to be interested!
That's Phil, second from the right....yes, even with his new beard, he is still probably one of the youngest Knights at 29 years old!

3) On Wednesday, I brought all the kids in for a haircut. I have always cut the boys hair myself, but I was feeling tired and wanted to watch a professional do it. They were so good in the salon, after they realized that it wasn't a place just for girls (eeeww, gross!). One of the hairdressers even cut a few bangs for Maggie for free. I always said I wouldn't cut her hair, but it was always in her face. I'm even thinking about giving her a bob until it grows in thicker. What do you think?

4) John-Paul is taking his first Tae Kwon Do class tonight. We decided to give him lessons for his (upcoming) birthday present. He is beyond excited!

5) Old Navy is having a sale this week on their khaki's. And I heart their Women's Perfect Khaki's to wear to work. They are comfy and flattering and come in so many colors. I love them so much, I have even bought them at full-price in the past (which is not like me) but this week they are only $17. Gotta love a bargain :)
6) The biggest news of all is that we had an appraisal done on the house, and everything is falling into place, and we just got approved for the loan. Woot-woot! We should be closing on our very first house next month!


1) We have been very busy this week with meetings and new schedules, so not enough family time for sure.

2) Phil had to call in sick from work yesterday because we had nobody to watch Maggie. This is something I really hate about being a working mom ~ all the juggling around with the kids, and worrying about who can babysit. I'll be thankful when they are all in school, or when we get rich enough so that I can stop working :)

What were your highs and lows this week?


  1. I'm wondering if there is an KC's council that has a larger number of younger men in it than older? I think I have yet to see/hear of one! My hubby still has not joined, despite his father's best efforts. He's stubborn like that :)

    The boys look SO.DARN.HANDSOME and grown up with their haircuts. And Maggie looks like such a cute doll!

    Sounds like things are progressing nicely with your house buying. Great news!

  2. the kids are sop cute

    have a wonderful wkend!

  3. My husband is in the Knights . . . he was inducted years ago and has only been to one meeting since!

    The kids look cute!

  4. I love the haircuts!!! I think maggies hair would look SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute with a bob! Either way, Robby will still love his manny.

  5. The kids look so great...I like Maggie's new bangs. (baby soft hair is the best!!!)
    My Hi's: Lots of stuff done at home.
    my Lo's: ummm, can't think of one right now.
    Have a great weekend.

    Thanks for sharing this with us Colleen!
    Those haircuts are so darling!
    Sorry about baby-sitter could always start your own at home business website! (I love it!)

  7. sofia's hair is identical to maggie's. my reasons are the same as yours. My dd's hair needs to grow in fuller before letting it long. The bob suits her face and style etc. maggie's is cute too.

  8. Look at those cute cuts! Hoping for more family time for you this coming week.

  9. This week has been crazy for me and I feel like we have had no family time either. Cute haircuts and I heart Old Navy too!
