Out With A Snip - In With a Pan of Cinnamon Rolls

Remember this post? And this one? And this one? And this one? You know, the multiple times my kids have CUT THEIR OWN HAIR and I took their kiddie scissors away, and then gave them back and they cut their hair again...

Well, after 1.5 years of being scissor-free, I decided the girls were big enough to have their kiddie scissors back.

And within 48 hours...

Did she seriously think I wouldn't notice??

So 2010 went out with a SNIP! and a whole lot of tears because Annelie's punishment for cutting her hair was a trip to the salon to have the rest of her hair chopped (she's been growing it out to be as long as Rapunzel's)

As soon as she learned that her hair was going, Annelie ran into Gracie's room, crawled into Gracie's bed, covered herself up with blankets and pillows and proceed to bawl her eyes out for forty-five minutes.

Then she climbed out of bed and off to the salon we went.

Annelie spent the entire time cracking up everyone in the salon by calling out things like, "I look FUNKY!" and "My hair is FREAKY!" and the more everyone laughed, the more fun she had. And her stylist, a young guy with wild spiky hair and a knowledge of all things Disney Princess, made her feel like royalty as he snipped and brushed and clipped and laughed at everything Annelie said.

And when Annelie left the salon, she felt like a million bucks.

"Today was the best day, Mom," she ended up saying to me before bedtime. Then she revised her statement - "Well, not the whole day. I still wish my hair was like Rapunzel's"

But she's happy with her hair, and happy is a great way to end 2010 and HOPEFULLY the hair cutting will finally come to an end. As the scissors are once again locked up, I'm optimistic.

And how did 2011 begin in the Hopkins household?

With a pan of hot and gooey cinnamon rolls (thanks, Pilsbury for making baking easy for the baking-challenged. My kids think I'm the best baker ever)

Equipped with crowns and goofy smiles, 2011, we're ready for ya!

Happy New Year, everyone!

Oh, I love those pics and your girls and the haircut - too funny and sweet. Wouldn't have minded being at your house for breakfast this morning; those cinnamon rolls look yummy

DAAAAMNNNN! Weren't we just talking about this? Still, she looks way cute with that hair. If I were you, I'd ban scissors from your house until they hit, oh maybe college :)

Lol on the scissors! Kids sure do the funniest things don't they??? She looks way cute with the finished haircut though. :-)

And yum on breakfast!!!

Hope you had a Happy New Year!

I think I want that guy as my hairdresser, what with the Disney princess banter and the fabulous cut!

I also want those cinnamon rolls, and how!

Wow, her hair!! Hahah keep those scissors away, I guess....

Happy new year! I find it so compelling that your daughters are so compelled to cut their hair. I have missed you over break.

Oh, please don't tell my kids about what they can do with scissors. Although, I already buzz the boy's hair every month. I just don't want to have to buzz my girl's hair too...

Happy New Year!!

Oh No!!! Well, at least she looks super cute with her new hair cut. I think I'd buy a lock box for all of your scissors
