big hair day

The day had finally come where Emma's hair was long enough to chop and donate!
You don't know how many hours worth of pain and torture we went through to get to this day.
Driving to the salon she still wasn't sure she was going to do it, but I wasn't going to leave until the ponytail was surgically removed from her head.
Here's Dee, the only person who has ever cut Emma's hair. I almost had to shear her in Florida, but luckily I was able to get thru the mess. It's an ugly story.
Her hair is so thick Dee had to put it into 3 sections to cut. That's a bunch of hair.
Halfway done!
In the end Dee cut nearly 10 inches off, and didn't have to go much above Em's shoulders, which was the deal breaker for her.
She keeps running her hands thru her hair and flipping it-she can't keep her hands off it. This is how I know she likes it, even though if asked she will be very blase. I like how healthy it looks, and that she can still pull it back for soccer. 
And it does make her look a little younger, an added bonus!

Today we are having a birthday party -for me! The whole family is coming over to grill and drink and open presents and be humiliated at Dance Dance Revolution if I have anything to say about it.
Have a great weekend!
