First Haircut

I've been dreading this day since I first laid eyes on her beautiful curls. Avery is one month away from being two and has never had a haircut, that's right. So I figured it was about time, but my biggest fear was that she was going to lose those crazy curls. We went to Snip-Its this morning and took the plunge. I feel like she looks so different, but in reality, she doesn't. The curls are just a little shorter and as a result are TIGHTER. She definitely looks like little Annie now. I also see a huge resemblence to my dad's mom.

The lollipop did the trick and she sat there good as can be and got her first haircut.

The finished product, these curls are even more springy now that they've been cut.

Where do they learn it?

I wonder sometimes where my kids pick up the things they say. Just this morning we were in the car and Brock heard the djs on the radio start cheering about something and he put his hands up in the air and yelled "MAKE SOME NOISE." Now typically this is only heard at basketlball games or other sporting events, which we really haven't been to any major sporting events this year with the kids. Maybe he heard it at daycare, because I certainly now that we don't go around the house saying "MAKE SOME NOISE!"

Nothing is better than ice cream on a nice day! I love this time of year, minus the pollen. The weather gets warmer and we're finally able to enjoy the OUTDOORS and all the fun there is to be had at the LAKE.

Dying Easter Eggs at the Lake - this has become a tradition the past few years and the kids have so much fun.
