Shortcuts

Poppa and Grammy - these smiles are just for you!

Our Dreamer parted with several inches of her blond locks this afternoon, and the Storyteller is sporting a nice neat haircut as well. Never mind that the Momma hasn't had a cut since May ...

Just for your information, Dreamer wanted to send her long locks to Locks of Love again to be made into a wig, but was too impatient to wait for it to grow to the 10" required, BUT we found out that they do take shorter hair, they just sell it to cover the cost of making the wigs for kids with hair loss. She was happy - she is sending about 8" to be sold. A fresh look for the new school year! Yeah!

  1. Your daughter looks beautiful with her hair cut. :o) How special that she can send her hair off to Locks Of Love. I have a dear friend who is currently undergoing breast cancer treatments. She said she could handle just about anything, until her hair began to fall out.
    Your son has a great hair cut too! I love hair cut days! :o) I know what you mean about not having a hair cut for some time. I am kinda like that. I have had my bangs cut, but leaving the rest alone.
