Homemade Chemical Peel

Clint is finally home!  Absence really does make the heart grow fonder, because I'm so happy to have him back.  Of course, in three weeks he'll be going to yet another tournament; this one in Oregon.  I'm thinking that maybe I'll invite Sarah and her kids to stay with me that weekend.  I'll cross that bridge once it gets closer though, because I really do love having the occasional alone-time with the kids. 

Trin's slumber party was insane last night.  It took me nearly two hours to clean the kitchen and dining room from all of the manicure/pedicure/facial mask wreckage.  The girls loved every minute of their pampering, although we did have a little bit of an issue with the facial masks.  We made our own masks from a "Princess Spa Cookbook" that Trinity owns, and the ingredients were very mild stuff, like oatmeal, bananas, almond milk...that kind of thing.  Yet almost immediately after applying the masks, the girls reported that their faces were burning.  Of course we immediately had them wash the sticky gook off, but their faces continued to feel hot--which eventually downgraded to warm--for probably a half hour after they washed them off.  I tried to put a positive spin on the whole thing; I told the girls that celebrities pay top-dollar for chemical peels, and weren't they so lucky to get them for free? Plus, as of today, all the girls were in awe over how soft their skin felt (that's what happens when you burn the first layer off, haha).  But I'm still half-expecting a disgruntled parent to call and complain that I tried to scorch their child.

Gotta go now...I'll try to post a few pictures of Trin's party sometime this week.
