New Do's

This was my girls yesterday morning...

This is my girls this morning...

We all had hair cuts yesterday, and we all went short for 2 very good causes. Laney and Morgan will be donating their hair to Locks of Love
Madison and I will be donating ours to Pantene's program. (Sorry, I do not do very good self portraits, so no pics of me.)

The girls have been patiently growing their hair for almost two years in anticipation of donating it. I can honestly say that they did not have one doubt about cutting their hair. Unlike their mother.

You can see the simple joy this one act did for the girls....

I cannot help but think of the Twiggs family when my girls talk about donating hair. Their sweet Martha Anne was the first person I knew personally that donated hers. She made an impact on my girls when they saw her unselfishly cut her hair. An impact that they remember to this day.

Happy Birthday Morgan! (2 weeks ago)

Morgan celebrated her 7th birthday two weeks ago today. (Yes, I know, good mommies post the day of, but I never claimed to be good.)

She loves building stuff with Legos. So, a pink box full of Legos was her birthday gift.

It is hard to believe that my baby is now 7. She is 7 going on 17. I love the confidence she has. I love that she is so unafraid of animals. I love that she can be so charming (just like her daddy). I love that I never have to guess what she's thinking.

Happy birthday, baby girl. We are so thankful God gave you to us.
