locks of love

Our locks have been cut...and most of them donated.

I cut Naomi's hair tonight and it was the first haircut of her life. She looks pretty cute if I may say so myself. She did pretty good but kept saying, "I'm all done" halfway through the haircut. I don't think she would have looked so cute if I had let her be all done. So, here's the before and after photos of Naomi.
Okay, this is a pretty scary picture of me. First of all I don't normally wear my hair down so this is not what I look like on a regular basis and second of all, I didn't have any makeup on (not that I normally do!) But anyway, you can get an idea of how long my hair really was.And here's the short haired me. So far, it's pretty new but seems pretty short. I really think this may be the shortest I've ever had my hair. I guess that's what happens when they put all your hair in a braid at the base of your neck and just chop it off. There are some pretty short pieces in the back. Oh well, it's for a good cause. I hope my year and a half of long hair will provide someone with a warm head! (Last haircut was January 2008) Now I'll just have to remember that I don't need as much shampoo! Naomi and I are now on the quest to donate again.
Thanks for taking my photos babe!

Greg and Micah got haircuts this week too. I guess it's a family thing.

Super-duper cute and your hair went to an amazing cause so I say kudos to you my friend! I bet it is a lot easier to care for as well! Thanks also for the phone message a few weeks ago when I was on vacation out east. I will call you back soon so we can chat! Much love!
