Hair Today...Gone Tomorrow

I finally did it! When I decided to grow my hair back out I made the decision to grow it just to donate it. I realized a couple weeks ago that it was long enough to send to Locks of Love (their minimum is 10 inches). I told my hairdresser that I was ready but that I would just do it after the holidays. However, she got excited and talked me into doing it right away! So yesterday I went and cut off 12 inches of my hair and will be sending it to Locks of Love today.

Here's the new cut:

I absolutely love it!! I am beyond thrilled to be able to help someone who needs the hair more than I do.

I know I'm behind on posts so I'll try to catch up a little bit in the next day or two. I remember last year when I was pregnant thinking about what it would be like during the next Thanksgiving when Haylee was actually here. I just can't believe that time actually came! We had a great time with family. On Thanksgiving day we went to Papa and Julia's house (Brad's grandparents) to spend the day with all the family. I love Brad's family so much and could not have asked for a better group of people to call my family. The day after Thanksgiving we went over to my parent's house to spend time with them. For those that don't know, my Mom fractured her hip and had pins put in right after Brad's surgery. Dealing with two hip patients at the same time is one reason I haven't had a chance to blog much! Some friends of my parents gave them a huge turkey dinner from a local cafe so we shared that with them. It was delicious - turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, rolls, corn bread, and cherry and apple pies. My parents have some amazing people in their lives that help so much, whether it's bringing over meals, providing transportation, or just giving them support. Needless to say we had a wonderful Thanksgiving with all of our family!! We have SO MUCH to be thankful for. God has blessed us all so much and continues to do so everyday. I thought it would be fun to compare Haylee and I last year....

to this year...
