Nephew, Husband, and Hair

O.K. so first of all Congratulations to my baby sister, Katie and her hubby Cameron, who are now parents to this cute little guy!


How in the heck can I wait so long to get to see him? I may have to make a trip sooner than expected!!

Next, Can I just brag a minute about how fabulous my husband is?(Yes I said Brag, and that is what I intend to do!!) I mean really!! He is the best daddy! Saturday morning he let me sleep in. Our van needed fixed (new water pump) and he had decided to do. When I got up in the morning, this is what I found outside~

He had bundled up Caleb and they were fixing the van together! Too Precious!!

Also, Kennedy was sick this weekend so we split church up. He let me go to Sacrament and the first block, and then we switched so he could teach priesthood. When I came home, this is how I found him with Kennedy! It was too cute! He had been cuddling her all morning!

And finally, Savanah kept asking me last night to paint her nails. I wasn't feeling to great and kept asking her to wait. I came downstairs to this~

He is a good nail painter too! He will probably kill me for telling you this, but when I am prego and get to the point I can't bend to reach my toes, he does them!!


And now on to the "Ragging". Many have asked me how I do Savanah's hair in those tight curly que's. I have tried to explain but I know it is confusing. So here is a step by step guide to ragging! It is as easy as foam rollers, just a different type of curl!

Step one- cut fabric strips an inch thick twice as long as your daughters hair. You will probably want to cut at least twelve depending on your child's hair thickness.

Step two-
(Watch video)


(have your daughter hold the top of fabric, wrap hair around the fabric(I do section of about an inch thick of hair), then wrap fabric around the hair, until all the hair is "ragged". Have daughter sleep on ragged hair.)

Step three- (next day)
(Watch video)


(Untie fabric. Pull fabric to unravel from hair, then pull fabric completely out)

Hair should look like this when all the rags are out

Step Four- Next run your fingers a few times through each tight long curl. It should frizz out and create tight knotty looking curls like this-

Step Five (Last step)
Style and enjoy

The best things about this way to curl hair, is it isn't damaging. The curls stay so well that this style can be used two days. I usually style the hair down the first day and the second day toss into a high ponytail. The curls are so resilient!

I hope this helps those who have asked how I do this. If not call or email me and I will walk you through it again, or come and help!!

What a good Hubby!!! I hope you are feeling well soon! What is your due date?

Darla and Kirk Nuttall said...

Beau is such an awesome guy, I miss the fun we used to have together. I even miss the teasing with you and Beau ganging up on me.
Congrats on your new nephew! Dennis went to see them a couple of weeks ago and said that Katie was ready to pop. The baby is beautiful. Its definitely worth the 9 months of uncomfortableness. Is that a word?
When Calista's hair is a little longer I am going to try that fabric with the hair. I love it.

My due date is April 20th-25th. So I just tell everybody April 22nd! It is easier than guessing, since they or I don't know for sure!! HA!

Kristin said...

I've always wanted to know how to do rag curls! Thanks Bonnie!! Tell Beau Hi for us;)

KJWilsons said...

I have one question for you. Does Beau give lessons?

Jess and Dusty said...

Bonnie, you do have a fabulous hubby. Your Beau should know that he as one wonderful woman as well. :) When Beau was over the other night, he was so excited to show us the post about his dirt biking, and to check any new comments. It was so funny. Guys are more into "our kind of stuff" than we give them credit for.

Adams Family said...

Okay, so do you just reuse the fabric over and over? I am imagining that you do. Brinlee's hair would look so cute with those curls. I've got to try that.

It sounds like you've got a good husband. Isn't that great!? I found a great one too and it is fun to brag about them once in awhile (or more). :)

Julie Ann said...

Cute hubby! Tony does okay, but he may need some nail painting lessons...maybe you could include a "Beau knows..." series on your blog! The rag curls are perfect for girl's camp, too! It keeps your hair out of your face the first day and then curl city the next!

Thomas & Marissa said...

My mom used to do rags in my hair almost every Saturday night so my hair would be all done up on Sundays. I hated it! :) My hair was so long, like down to my bum, and it hurt so much and took so long. Now I would give anything for her to come down and fix my hair!!

Nelson Family said...

You are lucky to have such a great guy. You guys are awesome! Is there going to be a Halloween party again this year? I hope so.

The Cutlers said...

So Cute Bon and it is fun to brag about Beau. I have a brag about Beau comment also... he can make a fire like nobody's business!

jen said...

Your ragging is so cute! I think I'll have to try it on my girls sometime soon!

Mandy said...

Firstly, YAAAaaa for an excellent hubby. I am truly glad you're able to appreciate each other. Sweet!!!

Secondly, thanks posting that hairstyle. I had seen Chandlers and Hanna was going to post one showing me how to do it. Savannah's hair looks adorable ragged too. How fun!! I can't wait to try it on Marley.

Bunnell's said...

Beau....That is awesome! What a good hubby:) I LOVE the you think it would work on Maddi's???? I might just try and see. She has opposite hair then mine...Mine is super thick and hers is so thin and fine...I don't know how to handle it...any ideas little lady!!!!


Monica said...

I am so glad Tebbin finally came!! Congratulations on being a new aunt!! Brag all you want it is wonderful to have an outstanding husband and father. I wish I had a little girl to try ragging on it is so cute. (I don’t think Kristina would let me try it on her)

Kristy and Casey said...

You totally have the right to brag about your hubby, what a fabulous guy.

Thanks for the lesson in ragging, I will have to give it a try, it turned out so cute!

Snedaker Family said...

I love the hairstyle . . . I hope to try it out on someone soon! I think I need a little girl or something . . . but boys are so fun too so I'll be content with whatever we get. What a sweet husband you have. I hope you are feeling better!

Roylance Rec. Center said...

Grand! Oh Beau always showing off your babysitting skills. :O)
Love you guys
And miss you
Love Ali

Jas, Kris and Kiddies said...

Bonnie...send your hubby our way and have him fix our water pump that just went out on our van. Is it hard to fix? By the way, Congrats on being pregnant!! That is so awesome. I hope you feel better soon, I am always deathly ill when I get pregnant, so I know what you are dealing with. Good Luck!!

Rivka said...

Ah MAN! Girls camp memories galore!

Miss ya, Bon

Hanna Terrill said...

Finally I have read through all of your posts! I always love reading your blog Bon. You are such a good mom and have the best ideas. All of the pictures with Beau and the kids are so cute. What a good daddy you are beaulina. I can't get enough, please post more!

Oh do you care if I post your video on our piggies and ponies blog? I was going to do it, but since you already did I don't want to go through the hassle!

Gina Lee said...

Have I mentioned how much I love Beau?!? He's so good to you.

Heather's Blog said...

Cool! I have never heard of that before. I will for sure try that on hadley...probably not for another 5 years at the rate her hair is growing!

Kristen and Jason said...

So- My little girl is sleeping in "rags" tonight. Thanks for the tip and the lesson. I can't wait to see how it turned out. She is only 2 and has quite a bit of hair, but because she is only 2 she didn't like holding the end very much. So I had to bribe her. Seemed to work! Thanks a bunch.

Y-it or Min said...

Thats the cutest way to do curly hair!! Thanks for sharing!

kari said...

Awesome post! You gotta good guy. Especially like the one where they are cuddling.

Kat and Cam Johnson said...

what a cute little boy! :) check out my blog for updated pics. That is so sweet of Beau to be helping you out so much (I think all us sisters did pretty well in the husband department). Such a trend setter showing everyone your ragging abilities! :) man, brings back memories of the little theatre! :)
