AFTER! She looks so GROWN!
Kennedy and Ms. Monique
So most of you know my sister and her family were here last week. Jenn's daughter, MacKenzie, cut her hair and donated to Locks of Love. This is something Kennedy and I had always considered, however, she never wanted to cut it. We talked about it, she's met several children with cancer, but I never pushed it because I wanted it to be something SHE wanted to do.
Last Thursday, she came to me and said 'Mommy, I want to cut my hair and give it to the little girls with cancer' ... I was typing away, as usual, and said "OK honey ... go get dressed'. I wasn't even paying attention really. She got VERY upset over Christmas and wanted us to adopt a child from Africa because they didn't have clean water over there. She said they could live in the guest bedroom. So this makes me realize she is definitely listening at church (we did a big 'give' to build wells in Africa at Christmas time). Anyway, within 10 minutes, she's dressed, has my purse, and is telling me to COME ON! Then I realize - OH SHE IS SERIOUS! SO off we go to Great Clips. I walked in and told the lady what we were wanting to do and she was so excited to do it. As you can see from the pictures, it was QUITE a bit of hair - over 11 inches!! Yes, I cried through the whole darn thing! I was so proud of her b/c she GETS it! Most of ya'll know her hair and I battled every morning. This has made BOTH our lives so much easier and helped out a great cause in the meantime!
