Topsy tail braid and giveaway!

For this hairdo it is super easy and I always get a lot of "how did you do that" and "that is really neat" so I thought that I would share! The other reason that I am showing this hairdo is I am giving away a "Topsy Tail" It is not that brand, in fact I don't know what brand it is because I don't read chinese but you can win one at the end of this post!



So I parted her hair from her ears forward and then started taking out small square sections and hooking them with clear elastics after you do the first one flip it through with you Topsy tail



Then move on to you second one! hooking the first tail in with the second, and just keep on going till you get all the way across the front of her head!

Here is what it looks like when you are all the way done with the "braid"

of course we added a bow and we were done!
Now for the fun part to win a "Topsy tail"

I hope I win this!!! I have wanted a Topsy Tail forever!

The best present I got this year was money. I know that sounds shallow, but we used it to buy a car seat for our baby who will be born at the end of this month. I was getting nervous because time was ticking closer to our due date, and we still didn't have a car seat that we could use since you're only supposed to use them for 6 years, and ours was expired.

I think the best thing about New Year's Day is the excuse to have a lazy day...at least that's what we do after we get our Christmas decorations put away :)

I would love to have a Topsy Tail. The best present I got for Christmas was a Photo Album from my mom with a ton of pictures of my kids in it, from birth until now. She takes amazing pictures and it brings back some great memories since my oldest is now 11.

New Year's has always been a tough Holiday for me because my grandmother, whom I was closest to in the World died on New Year's Day when I was 21. However, after having children I now look at it as a new beginning and a time for me to look forward to all the great things that will come in the new year.

Thanks for the great giveaway!

For comment #1 the best present I got this year was a small digital keychain I received from my husband as he will be deployed for the next few months and it gives me such a sense of family knowing that I will have a very small piece of him with me always!! ;)

For comment #2 Honestly I don't play into all the resolutions and everything but it is exciting to think about what could and might happen for a new clean slate of a year!! ;)

The best thing about the New Year is getting to have a new start. Start fresh, and that anything is possible.

The best thing about the New Year is that you are starting out fresh, renewed, and hoping for the best.

I bought a topsy tail for myself for Christmas. First time I used it, it broke. Maybe the Chinese make them better? The best present, was, of course, healthy kids.

The best part of this New Year is that one of my best friends gave birth to the first baby of 2010 in her state! So much fun!
