Happy Thanksgiving!


I love Thanksgiving. There are lots of fond memories I have of Thanksgivings past, and none of them have anything to do with what we ate. It was the people with whom we shared these times that mattered. Make sure you cherish the day with those you love- it may be the last this side of Heaven.
A strange T-day memory and tradition I am trying to continue- watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I remember watching this after our all-church Thanksgiving dinner, held at our house. I didn’t even have to get on a waiting list for it at our library, so I’m guessing that this tradition will be uniquely mine.
The above photos were taken on a Thanksgiving we shared with friends of our family. Anybody in my family know what year? I’m thinking ’96. Anyway, the real reason I’m posting these pictures is to ask you: should I cut my hair like this again? (Where am I? No, I’m not the one in the Native American headdress, or the perm on steroids. I’ve got the napkin tucked in my collar.) It is my favorite hairstyle, but short cuts are hard for me to maintain at this season of life. I’ve been pleased with my Rapunzel locks for way longer than I thought I would, and am just now having thoughts about cutting it. So I know this isn’t just a passing whim. We get to play Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus in our church’s Christmas production, so I’ll likely keep the long hair at least until that is over. Let me know what you think.

  1. What does Luke say? 🙂 I vote yes if he likes it and it won’t make your rountine too hard. I usually vote for long hair, yet you are one of the few who can pull off the shorter look and look feminine. I may be biased by the fact that you’ve had a similar style whenever I’ve seen you, but I believe it is even prettier on you. 🙂

  2. Not sure what year that is – wondering if I was there 🙂
    When did the Wittmer’s move to NY?

    I like your hair in that picture, you could cut it gradually. Or do locks of love, maybe your hair is long enough to do that ??
