Abe's Hair and a Penny Clip

Have I mentioned Abe's hair before? I like it kind of long and, you know, "cool." Mike likes it pretty much butched, so we just go from one extreme to the other. At least his hair spends most of the time in the middle non extreme realm, but once it has spent a few weeks moppy like I like, off it all comes at the hands of Mike. What about Abe's say in this? Well, he doesn't actually have a say right now. I'm sure the time will come soon enough that he won't allow us to just have our way with things. Here are his most recent before and after shots.

The cool face in this one is because he thought he spied pineapple on his pizza (it wasn't pineapple, it was just the dough under his cheese . . . but clearly it would have been awful had it indeed been pineapple). We just got back from swimming so he's shirtless.
And here he is shorn. He told me he just looked like some kid he'd never seen before. Some kid who is tough and cool apparently.
And, here is some more footage. I can't help it. I adore this trouble making girl so much, and no one can know how hilarious and fun she truly is because the minute anyone beyond our immediate family is around, she gets all silent and grumpy. And when I try to film her saying and doing darling things, she only wants to see what I can see in the camera. This was after her bath tonight. I really do love crazy little toddlerhood.

Oh, yes! Penny is at a good age - happy and independent but still so little to snuggle and love on. My boys are long past the 'do what you will' stage of hair. They now have defnite opinions. In fact, Sharktooth has suddenly become very much enthralled with hair gel and likes to do a little spikey thing in the front and is so proud of it. When I tell him to model me his hair he always gets his "shades" on so he will be even more cooler! Abe needs him some shades!

I have to admit Abe does look pretty cool with long hair, especially with his knitted hat on. But, the shorn hair is also cool in it's own way. I loved penny's scared face the most. It was the best!

Ohh I remember pushing past the accepting stage and causing Beau and Marcus to bawl and scream at me for forcing a haircut on them. Beau has come full circle and now asks me for a haircut and I'm all like, Hmmm maybe later.
Also, wish I could ever win Penny over--even to look at me would be a feat.
P.S. was feeling so good about running around the dam this weekend and then Sheri had to sneak and without telling anyone, run the Desert News marathon, and under 4 hours. Snatched my glory bragging right out from under me with my running girls..

Con just got a buzz. I love Abes cool peace sign. And could Pen be any cuter or smarter? I love that she knows how to do all those faces!
