Hair

I found instructions for making an Amish style hairdo.  I started out with two braids.  
The top of the braids are a little different than usual.  You start a braid and then make it a strand to start another braid.  You do that three times.  It leaves you loop holes to pull the ends of the braid through.
  
And this is the final.  I've done it three times and the other two times I did it the Amish way and it looked just so-so.  Today I fiddled with the braids and crossed them over (like the beginning of the Amish instructions by MusicLady), but then I did my own thing.  I took the elastics off the end of my braids, tucked them in best I could, and put in two small bobby pins.  'Tis real comfy and when I take it out the braid waves are nice.

Mrs. A., I'm still chuckling about a picture on your blog where the staph is wishing you a happy birthday. lol. Your whole family has a funny gene. Mr. A. and you must both be funny and so all of your children got at least 1/2 of a funny gene, and now everyone has a great sense of humor. I laugh so much at your blog.
