Evie's Make Over!

The Before Picture: Evie's attempt to make her hair look like Aunt Caitlin's. You'd never know it from the look on her face, but she was sooooo excited to go get "short hair" today.


Just before the first cut. Evie was a quivering mass of anticipation. She made the stylist's job quite difficult because she wanted to see everything that was going on at the same time. Every time she'd start trimming and layering around her face Evie would turn her head to watch the scissors.


The After Picture: She probably took off close to six inches! I think it makes her look older too...


And from the back. I am excited to think how much we'll save on shampoo and conditioner, and I have already decided that she is going to be a flapper for Halloween! It will be a learning curve to learn what styles we can do with the new cut, but still a lot of fun.


After the all the excitement of haircuts we grabbed some lunch and then went school shopping for Jake. (And a little pre-school shopping for Evie.) We were hot, tired and sweaty so we went over to Pa Dave's for a quick dip in the pool and to show off all the new clothes. *On a side note, I had to buy Jake some new church shoes because he's been wearing his sneakers for the last month. Size 4! My kid has ginormous feet. I am very worried that the new school sneakers we bought last month are already too small. ARRGH! Dang growth spurts.

Pa Dave bought some corn at the farmer's market yesterday so we stayed for dinner, since he didn't think he could eat a dozen ears by himself. Evie loved "helping" him shuck the corn and then couldn't wait for them to cook to start eating one. Good thing corn is as good raw as it is cooked with butter and salt...


The worried look on Jake's face is because his other bottom tooth is super loose and it is hard to eat corn on the cob with loose teeth.


Evie was having a very hard time letting Jake share her ear of corn...


Problem solved.


Yup. We do love corn.


Couldn't leave out my littlest munchkin and her amazingly lizard-like tongue.


All in all, a pretty great day.
