back in 1985, right before our whole family set out for vacation to Ben Delatour scout campground and the scenic route en route, Kelly and I decided it was about time for a bit of a make over.  I remember mom walking out to the mailbox to pick up the day's delivery, and we get busy with our wild idea.  We hid our hair and scissors in the doll house, like no one would notice 3 inches missing from off our foreheads.  I can't remember who's genius idea it was, but the outcome certainly was a work of art!!!!  
 that's me on the left holding the artist's shears, and Kelly, holding a dead rat...I mean, our BANGS!

during our trip, a few people approached our mother and asked if our haircut was some sort of new trend.

yup, we were definitely trend setters...wouldn't you think?

Kelly and I have kept perfecting that talent first attempted years ago.  We now not only cut our families hair, but we cut our own hair.  I see it as some sort of desperation...and unwillingness to pay someone that I could kinda do myself.  David even cuts the neckline for me...as long as I can't see any mistake, it doesn't exist.  That's what I tell myself, and It's working!

why tell you this?

Kaylee and Cade have decided to try out their own luck in the hair cutting business...I knew this day would come.  They do come up with some of the best ideas...partners in crime.  Heck, if mom and auntie Kelly can do it, it must run in the family.  can't be that hard anyway...it's just scissors and snipping.  Kaylee has a bit of fringe going on in her top ponytail...I could spike it and do some type of peacock effect, and Cade, I believe, has a few letters etched into his hairline.  good practice for Kaylee.  Can we turn that in as homework?

Cade is ripe for a haircut anyway.  Kaylee, we'll just wait and let that fringe to grow out.

Happy cutting!...but kids, ask a grown-up to help.  trust me, it'll turn out much better!

haircuts for the whole family tonight....kaylee, just a trim, cade a full cut, and some 'blending' to cover Kaylee's letter practice, conner: going shorter, me...i'm needing some thinning on the side, and david...'just gimme the regular'.
