Double Donation (no more BUN)

Definitely time for a TRIM or a CHOP!!

We've been putting off getting our hair cut until we could visit Aunt Jaclyn's salon. The girls would have NO ONE else touch their hair. I was holding off to have enough to donate to Locks of Love and have some thing left to work with:)

Lydia went first.

Lydia chose her own hair style... she asked specifically for bangs.

And then a BIG CHOP for Anna!

Anna had 10 inches cut off in those first minutes!!!

 I thought it was funny that she immediately started feeling for her hair again!
Anna's ending style! She looked so grown... seriously, a teenager already? LOL!!

And then it was my turn!! I'd really had been looking forward to going, just ask Brian! He was GLAD to finally get me to my sister:) LOL!

We took about 12 inches off my head!! It was wonderful!!! I love my hair and have already adjusted to the new morning hair routine which is MUCH easier and faster.... NO more school-marm-ish bun!!!

IMG_9035This is a little strange to post...

but our hair measured:)

This is Anna's 2nd time donating her hair to Locks of Love! I know she was a little hesitant to go through with a big CHOP, again! I left the decision up to her and at the end she was pleased. See her first donation/hair cut story here.

And I was thrilled to be able to donate, too!! I have done it in the past but I've had the "I need to cut my hair TODAY" itch for about 6 months.... it's been a long "hair" 6 months;) LOL!!

A super big thanks to my talented sister.... being patient with the girls and I and even working on her day off while pregnant! I know... she was super sweet! And Brian!! He watched the kids and meet up with us here and there to make it all work out for everyone! Thanks for being soo flexible, sacrificial and  willing!! And my parents who continue to take care of us and love on us... definitely demonstrating that we never really grown out of being parents!!

I can't help myself but in my opinion you all theee looks so much cuter with shorter hair!
Okay, this does not compare with me telling that my hair is growing longer right now lol....but this is for the styling them for friends wedding next year.
After that? I am not sure, depends on how long they will be. I also do not know whether we have got something like love of locks here, i need to check this out. Beside last time my hair was pretty long it got shorter with each cut and not with one. So donation would not have been possible.
Uhm, sorry for this long comment :)

My daughter has been growing her hair to donate to the locks of love. I am going to show her your post. I think that it will make her really excited. Thank you for sharing your experience.

You all look great! I can't believe how long you and Anna's hair was! Mine has never been that long.
