A day to record

So I decided to finally start a family blog! No better day than today because we have some exciting news to share. So our daily ritual is to get up, eat breakfast play for a while and then Lyndon takes a morning nap. While he's nappng Maddie plays on PBSkids.org or watches PBS on TV. (Actually now she can watch Disney because we just got dish network! Yay for of us!) While she's watching or playing, I take the opportunity to get in the shower. Okay, that doesn't happen everyday but MOST days, thank you very much. I get out of the shower and open the door to check on her and this is what I see.

My first thought is Huh, I don't remember cutting my hair and leaving it on the floor... I'm obviously in complete denial. So I keep walking to find the new hair stylist living in our house. Good thing she left a trail for me to follow...

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. She looks somewhat remorseful in this picture but in reality she was extremely proud of herself! On the positive side, it could have been worse. She could have cut those bangs A LOT shorter.

So off we went to the salon. I went to "Snip-It's". It's a child salon. She had so much fun that I think she felt kind of rewarded for cutting her own hair. DARN. Oh well, at least the stylist was able to turn it into a cute style.

Here's aview from the front.

Oh, I thought I would throw one in of Lyndon just to show that he is completely unphased by all the drama today or any day. Just as happy as ever...

And a view from behind. Like I said, I think it is quite cute but when we got home Jonathon just looked at me with an "I don't know what say" look. Well, I think our blog has started out with a bang! This is the only defiant thing she will ever do, right? :)

super cute hair- yes it could have been much worse. SHe could have needed a pixie cut! Oh the joys. I cut my neighbors eye lashes when I was younger. Let the creative juices flow! ;)

First of all, welcome to the blogging world. It's quite an experience.
Secondly, is it weird that I want that haircut? She looks so cute.

Love the cut! It is the same cut Emma gets from snip its!

Congrats on being initiated into the child hair cut club (ha-ha). Seriously, you can't make it through without at least one of them doing that. The trail was a total crack up!

Wow, what an exciting day! Never experience that one YET! Cute hair cut though. It's not right when an adult wants a 2 yr olds haircut. We have a blog but I've been horrible at keeping up at it. But I think I've made a new commitment. We'll see how it goes. Oh, and you take gorgeous pictures!
