|Somebody got new kicks! :)|
|90% off Easter clearance at Walmart!|
I also excitedly stumbled upon 90% clearance on Easter items at Walmart! Granted, the selection had been picked through pretty well, but I did find the above items for a grand total of 86 cents! The girl's Easter basket was 50 cents (it includes various candy, stickers, bracelet, and a purse), and the bunny and chick sippy cups/purses were 9 cents each. Perfect items for Operation Christmas Child!

I found this free Resurrection eggs printable from ChurchHouseCollection.com and had Anna color and cut out the pictures. She also decorated a brown paper bag with Spring stickers to hold her eggs. Then she numbered 12 eggs with a marker and filled the eggs with the appropriate picture.
After all the assembling was finished, we got my Bible and went through the Easter story using the 12 eggs, starting with the palm branches that were laid down for Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem and ending with the cloud that covered him as he ascended into heaven. Now, she can pull out her eggs and tell others about the Easter story, too!

It's been over 4 years already since I last grew out my hair to donate. In 2011, I donated 8 inches to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. This time around, I'm donating 10 inches to Locks of Love! This was the longest I've ever had my hair! I learned from my previous donation to not try to cut my hair myself....
The lady at the salon asked me if I had intended on donating my hair from the start. I told her I guessed I had that idea in my head, but actually, after it gets to a certain length, I think, "Might as well keep going and donate it."
My five year old was kind of shocked when she saw me with short hair. She said later that evening, "I've warmed up to your hair and it's cute." I'm glad to have her approval. My two year old boy didn't seem to notice.
This is definitely a commitment to grow out my hair so long! It is very thick and takes forever to style/dry. I'm not sure if I will have the patience to donate it again, but who knows... maybe it'll get long enough to where I decide to just keep going again. :)
Plus, as a cancer survivor who thankfully didn't need chemotherapy, it is the least I can do.
