Clip & Curl

Two weeks ago marked a momentous occasion in our household.

Annabelle got her very first haircut!

As long as it took us to get any hair, I was certainly in no hurry to cut it off. But, when talking to my hairdresser about how bad AB’s hair tangles and knots up, she suggested a trim.

Here’s a picture on a REALLY bad rat’s nest day. hiarnest

It made me laugh so hard, I had take a picture of it. It looks like a whole family of rats could be living in there, along with who knows what else!

AB did so good at the salon. DSC_0774She is extra shy around new people and in new situations, so I wasn’t sure how she’d do. I talked it up all morning though, preparing her for what Mrs. Aubrey was going to do.

She thought she was such a big girl with her new ‘do! DSC_0777

Aubrey was right, AB’s hair has been much easier to keep tangle free.

Of course I brought home the tiny little pieces of hair to keep. I forgot to take a baggie to put it in, but managed to find a ziploc full of goldfish in my car. AB will one day wonder why there are goldfish crumbs in the bag of hair from her first haircut. I’ll just tell her it came out of her rat’s nest.

The rat's nest pic is too funny! I have to admit Dean's morning hair looks similar when it gets too long...he gets serious BED HEAD! AB looks so precious sitting in Mrs. Aubrey's chair wearing that puppy dog cape and a proud smile. :-)

That is hilarious about the goldfish crumbs...I had to share with the girls at work & we had a good laugh!! She does look like big stuff up in that chair by herself, she's such a cutie!

I remember those days. Charlee sat with Braley when she got her first haircut.

I am so behind on my blog reading. That first picture of Annabelle's hair teased up is too much! I laughed soooo hard. If that isn't bringing back the 80s I've not seen it!
