The Hair

It happens all the time.

I swear I see it on Facebook at least once a month.

But never to us.

Annika cut her hair.

About a week before it happened Josh posted this of her on Facebook.  Her hair was all one length.

We also used this picture for her birthday party invitations.

Then she did this while Josh was napping.  All of her hair in front is cut very short and choppy.  There's a few long strands in the back still.

The scissors were on a shelf 6 feet high and she climbed up the other shelves to get to them.  She was determined.  She had a plan and she succeeded!!

According to Annika "I wanted to look like Annabel" or "I had too much hair" are her reasons for doing it.  She did this 3 days before her birthday party.


I called 4 salons while at work and couldn't get her in.  Finally I decided to try to walk-in someplace and we got in.  The guy that did her hair says he does at least one little girl a week that gets a hold of scissors.

He did a great job!

I think she looks cute but I just wish she didn't do it on her own!

There are a lot of pieces that are to her scalp and the front isn't very even so it'll be a process to grow it back out so that's it's even!

She's so proud of herself though and she told me that night "I like my haircut very much momma".

Can't fight her on that one, if she likes it then I like it and I do think it's a very cute cut on her!

Happy Birthday Annika

4 years ago this big bundle of joy was born.

All 9 pounds of her via c-section because she decided to put her head directly in my hip bone where she was nice and comfy.

This is just at a few hours old, so alert already!

First birthday, wild and crazy!

Second birthday, looking cute!

Third birthday, I think she was tired from playing.

4th birthday.  She loved everyone singing to her, just look at that sweet face!

Opening presents.

Me and my girl!

Acting crazy with daddy (who did a great job of decorating for her party all by himself!)

Happy birthday Annika, love you more than you'll ever know!

How bad do I suck??  I keep forgetting to blog and then I end up realizing that it's been 3 weeks without a post!

So first up Halloween!!

We carved pumpkins. Really we let Josh carve pumpkins while we watched!

We went Trick or Treating, the girls and I since Josh had to work.

The ballerina and Little Red Riding Hood.

I totally forced them to knock on this door knowing that this thing was motion sensored!

It freaked them out, they were both screaming when the lady came to the door to give them candy!

All their candy!

And yes, Annika has much shorter hair in these pictures.  Story on that will be Friday's post since it deserves it's own post!!
