First haircut!

Today has been a fantastic day so far!

Matthew had a day off of school and we have enjoyed being all together today. We started our day off right with a breakfast at Chick-fil-A. Our Chick-fil-A has been have "Free Breakfast Fridays" during the month of October and we took advantage of the offer today. The place was packed because all the schools were out today, but we enjoyed our time.


Immediately after breakfast, we headed over to "Great Clips" for Nora to get her first haircut! She is just 4 days shy of being 20-months-old and I finally decided I was ready to cut her "baby" hair. She has needed a haircut for quite a while, but I wasn't ready to take that step. Here are some before and after pictures:

After

She did a great job! She sat completely still and didn't say a word until the very end, when she looked down at her cape and said "Fish!".


After we left the haircut place, we headed to Lowe's to purchase some wood that is in the process of becoming a bookshelf for Nora's new room. This stop took quite a bit longer than expected, but both girls were great.


After Lowe's we headed to Wal-Mart for an oil change (where they proceeded to put the wrong oil in the van...Matthew has to go back later and get a refund. Annoying!), a new tire, and groceries. Since it was so late (11:30), we decided to just have lunch at the McDonald's in Wal-Mart. That was such a genius idea! Kudos to whoever thought of it.


We FINALLY left Wal-Mart around 1:30 and headed home, but not before Matthew had to stop at his barber shop and get his haircut...sorry, no before and after pictures of him.


Elyn slept all morning (with the exception of me having to wake her up at 10:00 to feed her) and didn't start crying until we were almost home. She is such a good baby!


It has been a great Friday! I am so thankful for my family and for the time we are able to spend together!


Here are two cute pictures to end the post: Nora wearing Matthew's shoes (she loves her daddy) and my two girls one morning last week (in both pictures Nora is wearing some type of "necklace". I know, in the second picture they are not actually necklaces, but hair things. She doesn't care, if it can go around her neck, it's jewelry). Elyn is without clothes because sometimes that is the only way I can wake her to feed her. As soon as I got done nursing her, Nora wanted to hold her. Nora is being a great big sister!

Nora's looks like a really big girl now w/ her big girl haircut! She is beautiful. When I read about how good she was and the word "fish", I started having little tears roll down my cheeks. that's the Nonna in me! And it perfectly okay!!! Both girls are beautiful. I'm glad Elyn made the blog today (naked or not)!
I love you all!

What a fun day! Nora's hair looks so sweet and I'm sure Matthew's looks great, too. :) I am very glad to hear how well things are going! Keep us "posted". :)

You survived the week, Dallas! I thought of you on Monday. :) I am very glad that your week ended on such a positive note. Nora's hair looks great, and Elyn is too cute cuddled in Nora's lap!

Ok, first off, Nora is so sweet! I'm so glad she did good for you. Did you guys have to hold her? 2nd...forget Wal-Mart next time and go to Speede Lube in Lowell...Heath's dad ownes that one. You would be in and out of there in 15 min max AND it's right down the street from you guys AND they wouldn't mess up the oil! (that IS annoying!) 3rd... does Matthew go to Tubby's?? Heath refuses to go anywhere else but there and won't let Sterling go anywhere else either! Whatever! :) Glad everything is going good with the two girls! I need your email address to send that recipe!

Sounds like your week ended perfectly. I'd love to see some baby pics of Nora to compare how the two look alike or differ. I don't remember Nora having a head of black hair!

They are adorable.

Dallas~
You inspired me and I officially posted my first blog. I even mentioned you in it.

Your girls are so cute... and they remind me of our lives 10 years ago. I wish I still had our 150 assorted/ matching size 2T and infant outfits. You are definitely someone who would appreciate.

Congratulations!

Nora's haircut is cute! Sounds like you guys had a great outing. I do not recommend Wal-mart again. We went there recently for an oil change and not only did they use the wrong oil they broke two hubcaps off our car. I will say they did pay for two new ones but it still took time out of several days, and driving around with missing hubcaps - well a little redneck looking! ha ha
Really cute photos of the girls.
