I can't believe she did it...

I'm off work today since Jenna doesn't go back to school until tomorrow. One of the things on our agenda is for us to go and get hair cuts. For me, I just needed my bangs trimmed, but for Jenna, she needed a couple inches taken off the back to get rid of dead ends and even it up.

However, this is what we left with...

To give a little background, Jenna has had long hair since she was old enough for it to grow long. We had talked extensively about giving her hair to Locks of Love when she decided to cut it. But she hasn't been ready. That is, until we walked into Great Clips this morning for our "trims". There was another little girl there doing Locks of Love and I think Jenna saw that it wasn't going to be super short, so she decided to do it.

I'm so proud of her and she is absolutely giddy about it. I never thought she'd look as pretty with shorter hair, but now, I think she looks just as lovely! Of course, I hadn't had any reason to take my Canon with me, but luckily, I still had my little Olympus in my purse. Otherwise, I'd have had to go home and come back later! Here are some shots from both...

tell her she did a wonderful thing and that she looks SOOO cute. Sami did that a couple years ago and I couldn't believe how grown up she looked with the shorter hair.

That is so awesome! She really should be proud of herself.

She looks adorable! Elery and I are growing our hair out together for Locks of Love (again for her, first time for me.) I think I can talk Emma into doing it, too. She looks great, but isn't it amazing how much different they look when it is cut?

How fun and yes, she looks very cute!

Please tell her wild and crazy Miss Stacey thinks she rocks cause she gave all her beautiful hair to Locks of Love. That is awesome. Second, I'm so proud of you and Steve for raising such a self-less child. You both deserve a big pat on the back but then again I knew you guys would cause y'all are great people. I'd love to sit down and "chat" but you know how it is life is crazy. ~big hug~
