Double Congratulations!!

Two big events to celebrate! The first is the referral of Hannah Tian that finally came for my sweet friend Colleen and her husband Jim. I was so filled with joy to see this beautiful face. They've waited a long time for her. Click over to their blog Journey to Ms Hannah to send along your congrats. Is that not the most precious face? Adorable! I can't wait to witness them bring her home and realize their dream of becoming parents. They'll be great at it!
The second big fat congratulations is for my baby brother who finally finished barber college and passed the test to become a licensed barber! Kudos to him not only for all the hard work and sacrifice that it took to do this but also for realizing that it's never too late to change your mind if you're not happy. He took a risk by leaving a stable, financially secure job that he hated to go back to school and start over. That took guts. Not many people are brave enough to do that. Especially when they're nearing 30 and have a house payment. Congratulations Travis! I know you'll be a great success. And you'll be happy making a living doing what you enjoy!
Oh and this is our youngest nephew, Teagan, getting his first haircut from Uncle Travis. Cute, huh?

Congrats on your brother! I just told my son this morning he needed a hair cut, and I was taking him after school, and he told me he wanted a mohawk - I almost passes out - I DON'T THINK SO!!!!! I'm a cool mom, but not THAT cool!

Hannah is very exciting news!

It's lovely to have someone in the family that can give free haircuts!
I don't have my barbor license, but I do everyone's hair in this family. I know one hair cut, the little boy cut.

That's weird. I was just on Ms. Hannah's blog before I clicked on yours. I totally missed their referral and behind on the loop here. I guess that's what happens when you become a mommy!

She is one cute little baby
