Ye Old Ones

I felt like I was in the prime of my youth. I was outside playing wiffle ball, and even winning, and feeling so young and like I could run around those bases forever. Suddenly Claire and Rebecca, my sisters, stopped the game and came over to me and gasped! I knew something must be terribly wrong to have caused such a reaction! "A gray hair!" they exlaimed in horror, "you have a gray hair!" Oh no!! The world as I knew it was crumbling before my very feet! Okay that was a bit dramatic, but seriously, it made me feel so miserably old. I don't feel old enough to have a gray hair. Isn't gray hair synonymous with wisdom? I don't feel wise enought to have gray hair. I don't feel smart enought to make all the smartest comments in Gospel Doctrine, also synonymous with gray hair. I'm definitely having a mid-life crisis. Can anyone recommend some hair dye?

Join the club! I have been in the "hairclub for women" for a few years now. I had a patch of white that I kept pulling until my hairdresser told me I was developing a bald spot from all the plucking! That's when I realized I better let them grow back in and start the hairdye routine...ugh! Better to be gray than bald, right?

Eric has gray hair too. . . lots of little ones. :) That's what kids and stress do to you. Does Jake have any?

Em,
maybe it wasn't grey, maybe it was platinum blonde!! I can imagine that was a hard thing to take, when I get grey hairs I will probably freak out, so congrats on handling it so well.
How are things going for you guys? Has Jake started his new job yet? Let us know how it all goes
Aunt Jill, Codee and Jenny came up last night and they all wanted us to start telling you hi. Hopefully Grant and I will start hanging out with Codee and Jenny, they are really fun and we need some friends to hang out with!
love ya

I'm sure that it's just having 2 babies! That'll give ya a million gray hairs! But really, don't worry about it too much - I love gray hair; I think it looks pretty. You are beautiful with or without gray hair, and definitely NOT old!

Lovely picture..I've had grey hairs for a while now- but then again, I do love to dye my hair so it works out nice. I think it means you must be working hard- thats what I tell myself at least.
