How to make a Rapunzel Wig from Yarn

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your golden hair.
What little girl does not wish to have
hair as long and flowing as Rapunzel?
Every little Rapunzel needs her golden hair,
so we are here to help.
Let's have some fun and
make a Rapunzel wig.
You will need:
1 skein - yellow/gold yarn
flowers - purple (Dollar Tree)
5/8" ribbon - purple
measure tape
hot glue/gun
2 rubber bands
2- rocks or heavy objects
1 willing partner (this helps a lot)

Measure your little Princesses head.
or use this handy dandy chart.
6-12 months - 17"-18.5"
12-24 months - 19.5"-20.75"
2-4 years - 20.75"-21.25"
4-8 years - 21.5"-22"
Then add how long you wish the hair to be.
Our wig was for a 3 year old so we went with
21" and added length to measure 60".
We wanted long hair, but not long
enough for her to trip over.
Because Dolly wanted to play we worked
on a table, but the floor would work
just fine for very long hair.
 Place a strip of tape on each end of the
area you are working at.
Now roll the yarn to each strip of tape.
This is were the partner will come in handy.
Back and Forth

Back and Forth
The rock/heavy object helps the yarn
stay in place.
We used 1/2 of a pound skein of yarn
for our wig.
Once you have what you think is
enough yarn cut the loops.
Cut 1 strip of ribbon the length of your yarn.
(I know their are 3 strips, but we perfered it with just 1.)
Tie a strip of yarn around 1 end.
Divide the yarn into 3 strips and
place the ribbon on the center strip.
Braid the 3 strips.
Make sure the ribbon is on top while braiding.
(we did not get pictures of us braiding)
When you get to the end tie off
with a strip of yarn.
Using the width of head place end
were it will meet up with the "tail"
to make a crown
and secure with a rubber band.
Secure bottom of "tail" with rubber band.
Now give your hair a trim.
Tie ribbon at crown and end.
Add your flowers securing with hot glue.
Now you have a wig
for your little princess

Cecilia was so cute she stuck her head out of
her play house and asked
"who is going to climb my hair"

Sam the Squirrel

Introducing the newest member of the family.
Sam the Squirrel
I know I keep saying the ZOO is closed,
but what is a mom to do when something
so cute, snuggly and tiny is handed to you?
I took a trip to LSU Vet school.
They said they could take Sam,
but I looked around and saw how full
they were with sick animals.
So for the next few weeks we will have
every 2 hour feedings and
NIGHTLY feedings.
Am I looking forward to this-
But we get to know we helped
Mother Nature with another baby.
Once Sam is eating hard food
we will take him back to LSU
and they will help him back into the wild.
For now we get the pleasure of
cuddle time...with Sam

Every baby animal is unique and adorable,
and there is no greater love than that between
a mother and her young.
It is the power of this love that explains why
humans have always sought the company of young animals.

Chocolate Bread

We are still trying to find ways
to use up all of the stale bread, so
today after Mass we came home
to a yummy breakfast of 
on bread
Hold on, don't leave you will like this,
I promise.
This is a recipe that
I remember from when
I was a little girl.  My cousins
and I would sneak to my Great Aunt's house.
She would make us chocolate bread.
We could never figure
out how our Moms knew we went
to Taunt Chook's house
and played on the barn and ate chocolate.
Hum- I wonder now,
could it have been a chocolate
ring around our mouths
and our bottoms had red paint on them???
5 Tbs. butter
3 Tbs. flour
3 Tbs. cocoa powder
4 Tbs. sugar
1 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Melt butter in a small sauce pan.
Stir in all dry ingredients and cook on
low heat for 2-3 minutes.
Slowly stir in milk, make sure
to get all of the lumps out.
Cook another 2 minutes, until thick.
Take off heat.
Add vanilla.
Serve over bread, buttered toast,
biscuits, ice cream.
You can even try it with eggs
and french fries.
Yes, we have tried
french fries dusted with chocolate
and eggs dipped in chocolate at
Chocolate by the Bald Man
In both New York and Las Vegas
(we did not have a picture of the eggs)
They are

It all exist in people’s minds & hearts.”

Sausage Bread Pudding

It's the day after Hurricane Isaac
and the power is back on.
And we have a loaf of bread that
is more than a couple of days old.
After time without power
no one wants to see a sandwich, so
what to do with the bread?
Bread Pudding it will be.
We have tried
(BTW just take a look to see how far we have come with our pictures.)
but this time we were looking
for something savory to
use deer sausage.
Sausage Bread Pudding
2 Tablespoon butter
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound sausage, chopped
(we used deer, but any can be used)
2 Cups chopped onions
2 Tablespoons chopped garlic
5 large eggs
1 Cup heavy cream
3 Cups milk
2 Cups grated cheddar cheese
8 Cups torn bread
(we used 3/4 of a loaf of white bread)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Grease a 2-quart baking dish with butter.
Place bread into baking dish.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the onions and cook until soft.
Add the sausage until cooked.
Add the garlic and cook about 2 minutes.
Season to taste.
Combine the eggs, cream and milk in a large
mixing bowl and whisk.
Stir in the sausage mixture and cheese.
Pour over bread and mix together.
Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oven.
Let rest for 10 minutes before serving
or longer to set.
If you have any left-overs this will make a
great breakfast.

of a hurricane is either a fool or a liar,
or a little bit of both.
