locks of love

s had been thinking about her hair a LOT lately.  it was long, it was heavy, it was hot, and it took a long and painful time to brush the tangles out each day.  still she loved it, and when we went for a trim last week, she wasn't quite ready to say goodbye.

she thought some more, and when i went to get MY hair trimmed today, she had finally decided it was time.

our friend christie took the kids to see "kit kittredge" so i could have time to pack for our long trip to michigan tomorrow.  i gave her the option of taking the kids to "snip-its," the cool kids' salon by the theater, to do the deed.

i was kinda sad to miss the big event, but was VERY excited to see the finished product.  here she is, holding her hair that is destined for locks of love.  that is... after she shows grandma & papa.

cute, huh?  and much more spunky & practical.  and don't you just LOVE how she kept the hair wrap she got in myrtle beach back in april?

oh, and the kit kittredge movie?  the 9 year old boy proclaimed it to be better than iron man.  figure THAT one out.

What a cute haircut! She looks so cute and adorable! She looks great with short hair! Was she nervous at all about the haircut? I'd love to see more pics of her new haircut too! How does the back look?

ADORABLE. And, such a great cause. I wish more grownups were as charitable as kids. It looks great. I love it!

Cute! I remember the pain of hairbrushing when I was a kid. She'll be a lot happier now.

Brave girls.

She looks super cute! We did the locks of love thing a few years ago. I don't think Autumn will be parting with her now long again hair for quite awhile though. Glad to see you back :)

So totally Aimee Mann with that little wrap! yay her for being so cool and yet pixie cute at the same time.

And of all the things I'm most proud of my daughter for, her kind, giving heart tops the list. You should be proud of your kind, giving daughter as well.
