Hair cuts

I finally took the advice of a dear friend and on Monday whacked my kids hair off with my own two hands. Okay, so technically there wasn't all that much whacking that went on but it sure felt like it. Maybe because it was my first time!I'm rather pleased with the results, even if it did take me going back and cutting more off 3 different times with both of them! I hated to do it but both of their manes had gotten rather long and shaggy and to be quite honest, I was a little embarrassed going out in public with them last week! James' hair was more than long enough for a pony tail and the back of it always looked like a rat had been sleeping up in there! And poor little Audrey had a very nice mullet going on on her pretty little head!See, he doesn't look much different, not from the front any way. And FYI, that is his hair line and not my shaky handy work!!See that little piece off to the left poking out? I think that is going to be her cowlick. It's the same length as every thing else but it just wont lay down straight. Very annoying. I've contemplated cutting that piece real short but I'm too scared!
The table that they are sitting at is the best $20 bucks I eva spent! I found it at a second-hand furniture store and they just adore it. They love to sit and color and watch cartoons at it. It's real low to the ground so it's a snap for both of them to get on and off it. It's Little Tykes so I was proud a myself that day!

Oh, Mannio! They are so precious and innocent looking sitting there. Just coloring and entertaining each other;how well behaved they are. I think they are probably just this way most of the time.

I love the haircuts!

Love Nenie.

You did GUT, 'manda! I used to cut my children's hair...they told me in their older pictures they all had the same haircut...even Angie. lol It beats the heck out of having to have a "stylist" cut and spend $50. And, that's an understatement probably. You'll see. You'll come up with many ways to cut corners and HAIR. The table is sweet and the two of them sitting there so "grown" looking...good post...but, then, aren't they ALL!

Look at you, girl!! See, it's not so bad when you get over the fear of doing it. It's just hair. It'll grow back. :) And besides, you did a great job!!
