I don't know what it is about General Conference and hair. We too had an incident, Kristi. I was just sitting listening to conference in my computer room and they girls walked by to say they needed to go to the bathroom. Well I thought that was pretty neat that Ally was taking Andie, as she is learning to use the toilet. Well they were in there for awhile. I thought well they're both doing some business so I'll give them time. Then I heard a slight noise in the kitchen. They have played "cook" in the kitchen so silly me thought that that's what they were doing. Then I heard the dishwasher start. I called Ally in to tell her to turn it off, still not noticing anything awry. She ran back in but didn't turn it off, so I got up to turn it off and that's when I saw the pile of hair in the garbage.

Yes, in the garbage. She had cut off chunks of her and Andie's hair and placed them in the garbage. I saw this and sat down not knowing if I should cry or laugh my head off. One of the first things she said was "Mom, it'll grow back" later she told Jeremy she was trying to make her hair look like mommy's. We had been talking about getting her hair cut as well. I just didn't think it would be like this. One of the first things Andie said was "Mom, Ally ruined my hair". Oh yes, she did. I had planned Andrea's Halloween costume around her hair thinking that it would be safe. I had bought a pattern off eBay and am now currently sewing it. She was going to be Rainbow Brite with her long blond, big banged hair, but I don't know if that's going to work now. GRR!
Andie's big bangs. Perfect for Rainbow Brite in my opinion.

Here is the top of Andie's head where Ally cut a chunk pretty close to the scalp.

She also got a bit at the sides.

Here's Andie at the salon.

Here's the front after, she ended up covering it up because there wasn't really anything she could do.

Here's the back, she ended up layering it so it look a lot better.

Now onto Ally.
This is how long Ally's hair was. Andie's is about 2 inches shorter than Ally's just to give you an idea of how drastic a cut it was.

This is the back of it.

This is the front of it before the salon.

This is our salon trip to Studio 360 to salvage her hair.

This is the back of her hair after the salon. Our stylist did a really good job for what she had to work with. She said at one point. "Man she just cut at all the vital spots, didn't she?".

Here Ally is in the after picture.

Wow! That is so funny. Well, it may not be funny now but it probably will be funny years down the road. That is a bummer about the Halloween costume. The new haircuts are very cute! When I was young I cut my bangs with my grandma's sewing scissors. She just sat and laughed at me. Especially when she found out what I cut them with.

I think everyone has to go through this at least once! I am still waiting for my turn, although with a boy it probably isn't so bad! Now they just look sassy with their short hair. It is just hair after all.

That is too funny. It is true that Ally has a lot of Tiffany in her.

Her hair is so cute! She looks like a pixie.

I am glad that Jeremy didn't buzz her head.

I am sorry, but that is pretty dang funny. I remember JC cutting off one of my pigtails when I was about 4. My mom wanted to kill him. Their new haircuts do look realy cute though.

Apryl, I feel your pain! And all I can say is thank goodness I have curly hair! That and your girls are adorable enough that they can pull it off.
And to think, that it took so long for Ally to grow her hair in the first place...

I am glad that CC told me to come look at your page. Those girls are too cute and funny. I am glad to say that at least I didn't cut anyone else's hair but my own. It also seems that kids choose the worst time to cut hair-mine was right before the Christmas pageant at church (no bangs). I am sad about Andy's bangs but she will still be soo cute-I hope I get to come visit on halloween to see you guys.

lol. I LOVE IT! I will say that I was evil when I was that age. I knew perfectly well what I was doing when I hacked off McKenzies hair. and I knew not to let her cut my hair when I was done! lol thats awful!!!
