Here at Le Top, our Warehouse Manager Daryle made a bet with his oldest daughter Kiyera (16). Normally, Daryle loves his bald head, but decided it was time to show his love for the Giants…and his daughter.

He started growing his hair during the NLCS playoffs when the Giants clinched the division on October 3rd. He vowed not to cut it until the season was over. The moment the closing pitch landed in the Buster Posey’s glove to seal the divison title, Daryle told Kiyera that if the Giants win the World Series, she could shave his hair any way she wanted and that he would wear it that way for a day!! Well, you know the Giants won the World Series!! Go GIANTS!! Kiyera wasted no time after the game. With spectators in towe, she dragged Daryle into the bathroom to shave his head. Check out her masterpiece below! I think Daryle may be keeping this style for a while to show off how proud he is of Kiyera, and it looks pretty good on him!

Thanksgiving may be weeks away, but that doesn’t mean your little pilgrim can’t begin to create some holiday crafts.  We found this cute idea where you use rocks from your garden as a Thanksgiving name card craft – get a head start (we know how choosing seats at the dinner table can be daunting during the holidays!).

Plymouth Rocks
Instead of using paper place cards, coat stones in brightly colored tempera paint and glue on alphabet pasta letters.

Items Needed:

  • number of rocks to equal your # of family members and/or guests
  • colored tempera paint (found at your local hardware store)
  • bag of pasta letters (at your local grocery store)
  • Elmer’s Glue


  1. Find rocks in your garden (however many are in your family or your party)
  2. Wash the rocks and dry them thoroughly
  3. Paint the entire rock the color of your choice with tempera paint
  4. Glue on alphabet letters to spell out your family names (i.e. dad, mom, Charly, Ella, etc.)
  5. Allow to dry on newspaper inside the house
  6. Set the table! 🙂
