The girl with the sassy hair

For some time now McKena has been wanting to grow her hair long and donate it to locks of love. I am not sure who first inspiried this (I think Isabelle in Iowa) but we have since seen many of our friends doing it. So if has helped McKena to be even more determined. Last Spring she was pretty close then her and one of her friends decided to give themselves a hair cut. So now finally a year later she is ready. I was a little sad to see her hair grow, but very proud of her for being brave.

Here she is with her new sassy haircut. She loves it. I do not think she is able to pass a mirror with out tossing it and smiling at herself. The guy at the beauty school said she was so good. He claimed to be uncomfortable around children, and said McKena made him feel so comfortable. No surprise there McKena can certainly talk to anyone. We love the cute new do!!

Oh McKena I love it!! I was so proud of you to hear you donated your hair to locks of love. Some lucky girl is going to have some beautiful hair- all because of you! Great job Sweetie!

That is awesome! She looks so cute and I love that she looks in the mirror and tosses her hair as she goes by. What a girl!

Hmmm, wonder who that was that cut her hair?? I am still so embarassed about that one.
Chloe came home the other day from a friends with her hair cut. My friend was so worried, and I had to tell her of the Ellie/Mckena incident and that I should be the last person on earth that would be mad about that one.
She looks darling!! I think the new hair do is great, and happy Ellie had nothing to do with it.
