We chopped off some of Elle’s hair:Ha! That was Elle’s idea of a gag picture. She won’t let me near that hair of hers with a ten-foot pole if any scissors are involved she wants it long so bad. Grace was the one begging for a trim. As you can tell, she was pretty pleased with that cut of hers:) I did get close enough to Elle’s to at least try to hide the split ends somehow: Gotta do something now and then with all these girls’ heads of hair I’m sort of in charge of!(You just do two low braids on each side and pin them up and over.) Oh the joys of having so much hair in one house… I’m pretty sure I should start my own Pinterest hair-do station… I’ll just keep photos like this tucked safely away… 🙂
Grace is EIGHT
Even though I feel like Grace has been eight forever (she’s pretty mature in a lot of ways), I still can’t believe my third baby has crossed over the line…

Today this girl right here turns EIGHTEEN. Yes, I have another child who is just plain OLD. And in Hawaii, because that’s where she is right now, they say “Hau’oli…
Shawni use Wen. It works great for Kylie's hair and you know how it is. A little expensive and takes a learning curve but just watch the videos and it takes you exactly through it. I buy it off QVC because it is cheaper but you can get it off the website. I use the WEN kids on Kylie and now her split ends are great and I didn't even have to cut her hair.
That last picture is just too much! I want to kiss that little, squishy, baby body!!!!
The pix of Grace made me laugh. I love her expressions:)
Did Claire get her hair cut too?
If Elle is looking forward for a long and healthy hair, tell her to cut those split ends! These dead ends will make hair breakage more constant and she might end up with unhealthy odd looking hair.
Trimming 1/4th of an inch of your hair every 6-8 weeks is great for you!
shawni, my husband and i are going to india in a couple of weeks. i was wondering if you can give me any tips?!! i am very nervous and want to make sure i have it planned out perfectly. i have emailed melissa tours and hopefully they will be able to take us around. but you have any other tips i would greatly appreciate it. i'm pretty sure my mother in law said my husbands grandparents know your parents! Colleen and Elder Maxwell. you can leave a message on my blog jodi-anderson.blogspot or you can email me lvchic@ hotmail. thanks!!
I was coming to say exactly what Ana Carolina has said – get Elle to trim her splits, then her hair will grow better. I take a pair of nail scissors and cut just a centimetre above the split (you can see where the split finishes, give it a bit more than that to be safe). Otherwise eventually it stops getting longer as it just splinters and bits fall off all the time. I've not had a haircut in 18 months but I trim all the time. Grace's new haircut looks great!
Love the haircut and braids. Oh and that last photo of Lucy is so beyond adorable!
