Elaina's Christmas Gift

Elaina needed a haircut. If she went to bed at night with her hair down, it would take me hours and plenty of tears the next morning to get a brush through all her tangles. Once it was brushed out, it was really beautiful, but we both decided it wasn't worth the drama. So, we scheduled a hair appointment with the fabulous Robyn, our neighbor and friend.

Right before Elaina's appointment, however, she brought up something she had heard one of her friends mention: Locks of Love. So, we went to the website (www.locksoflove.org) to see what it was all about. As it turns out, Elaina's lovely locks were three inches beyond qualifying, and she decided now was the time to give something of her own so someone else in need could have a happy Christmas.
Robyn braided Elaina's hair,
...then snipped the whole thing off!

The finished product was so cute! Robyn even put sparkle hair spray in Elaina's hair.
We all dig the svelte new 'do and Elaina is so excited to send off her hair to the little girl who needs it.

So cute! I'm a real fan of short hair for little girls (and big girls too, sometimes) and I'm always happy when swim season comes around and we "have" to have haircuts!
