sweet cheeks and her cousin cut their own hair sunday night at our house while they were supposedly playing upstairs. my one-lengthed hair girl gave herself bangs. my niece gave herself a layer of even shorter bangs.
i was a bit shocked. i think the husband and sister-in-law were a bit shocked. but why? don't all girls cut their own hair at some point in their life? pretty sure they do. i did. and i guess sweet cheek's time was now. i'm just thankful it wasn't really that bad of a cut.
i asked her to next time just tell me when she wants a haircut and i will gladly take her for one.
i took her last night to snip-its to get it cleaned up and evened out. i will try to share pics of her new do soon!
we went to the carnival friday night with two sets of friends of ours. i think sweet cheeks also enjoyed having the kids to ride with. i love that she has so many buddies. they are always so sweet to watch together.
here are the kids on the first ride of the night. it was a huge teddy bear that spins around and around. how cute are the 5 of them all together in there.
this is my action shot of sweet cheeks on this spinning swing ride. i even rode it with her. made me a bit nauseous. thankfully we had dinner after this ride, not before.
sweet cheeks and her friend, rebecca, dancing. there is always time for busting moves at the carnival.
licking her sticky cotton candy fingers.
bumper cars. sweet cheeks is a crazy driver. pretty much all of the 5 year old drivers were.
sweet picture despite the poor quality. we stayed out friday night till 10:30pm! they probably could have gone longer!
i have mentioned it a time or two how sweet cheeks tries to dress like me. she is always putting on my glasses. so the other day on one of our many weekend trips to claire's, i saw these fake glasses. sweet cheeks hasn't taken them off since. she is adorable in them. just look at her!
when did she turn fiveteen???
seriously, you could never know the amount of joy that this tractor gives to the kids. they rode on it for so long! thankfully my niece is old enough to drive the younger kids around while we sat, watched, and enjoyed the moment.
my brother even got in on the fun
they were all singing taylor swift songs
(look at those girls rockin' the glasses!)
here are some of their cutie dresses.
love the chocolate zebra print with the bright pink accent
love the bright colors, big flowers, and misplaced pockets
i bought sweet cheeks this one. again, love the trim in a different color
and some cute 'rock star' pjs. sweet cheeks can rock out in these while performing a bedtime concert
sweet cheeks could initially tell i was nervous about it. without hesitation, she quickly told me that i "better get used to it because dad and i like it." nice. how easily she puts me in my place.
and the girl in me gladly admits that like sweet cheeks i love her dirt bike wardrobe! oh her boots, her gloves, her riding shirt, helmet and goggles! she rocks them all.
sweet cheeks waiting for her daddy to get her
about to ride
apparently, by the looks of her, riding is exhausting!
