Butterflies and Bobs

Could this week get any busier? I feel like I have been caught up in a whirlwind and I am t-i-r-e-d. I'll be woman enough to admit that I am a smidge grouchy, too, so rather than write a rant about the color of the sky and everything under it, I will simply take you on a picture tour. See, I really do care.
Here we go...
We couldn't get any pictures that were of decent quality while Julianna was performing, because you aren't allowed to use a flash, but this is her getting her flowers once we were outside:



I love my girl...


She has been begging me to get her hair cut for a couple of months now, but I kept telling her that she had to wait until after her recital. Well, her much anticipated appointment was yesterday. Can you believe that all of that hair wasn't even long enough for Locks of Love?


Here she is with our oh-so-fabulous hairstylist and friend. Bye-bye tangles! I DID keep her ponytail because I am going to see if L.O.L. will take her 9 inches anyway.

JuJu's new do. Don't know why the quality of this shot turned out so bad, but you can still see how her cut turned out.
She has never had short hair before, and I will go ahead and say that I worried that she would lose that "little girl" look if I got it cut. But I was wrong! It looks SOOOO cute, and it is super easy to take care of now. I am really excited about how much easier it will be when we start heading to the pool. I am actually really excited to start heading to the pool, period.

How precious.

I remember when my youngest wanted her long locks cut. They seem to grow up in an instant don't they..

Love the new do...

My twins have done this twice, and it makes us so happy. Yes, for doing the right thing and helping people with their hair, but also for how wonderful tangle-free locks are!!!

by the way- she looks ADORABLE!

Oh how I do love her new do!
I am actually going to get D to cut mine off next week. If mine is not long enough for LOL is it good to know about the beautiful lengths place.

This is try #3 for posting my comment. I forget what clever things I wrote the first 2 times. Now I'm just mad.

Love your little bobbed head girl. She's adoreable.

Love the new Haircut!
i see we take dance at the same place. Amy was in the 4 yr. old spider group. I was a little jealous of all the beautiful butterflies and snapdragons! She just wanted to be in the bumble bee group--and she hates bees!

What a cute do! Don't give up on the hair just yet - if LOL won't take it try beautiful lenghts or I think Pantene or Garnier has a program as well.

Sis will be getting her's cut the end of May - I think she may have enough for LOL.

I love it! Can't wait to get Abby's cut for summer! (She HATES getting her hair cut!) The only way I can accomplish it without major drama is to go the Sweet-n-Sassy--- and it's worth it to skip the drama!!!!

Cindy-Still His Girl said...
