Kendal's first haircut

Kendal turned 3 about a month ago and she just recieved her first EVER haircut last night! HOORAY! I have known that she has needed a little snip snip for awhile now, but if you know Kendal, then you know that the only time she is still, as in not moving, is when she is asleep, and even then she really isn't STILL. So I have not taken her to get her hair cut for that exact reason. I have just been ignoring the frayed yucky ends of her hair and keep slathering on the conditioner!
Well, it all changed last night. Amanda and Jen came over for a minute last night and it happened!

Amanda gave Kendal the water bottle (I thought of you Krista!) and that kept her pretty happy and content for a few minutes. But she still didn't hold still, Amanda had to be pretty quick with those scissors to get a snip in before Kendal moved that sweet little head of hers.

When the water bottle was no longer doing it for her, and when Jen was done with me singing Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree, Kendal was given ranch dip and carrots to keep her content and to keep her mind off of her head.

I am pretty sure Matt didn't feed her any dinner ( I was gone) because she was shoving in the ranch and carrots pretty fast! Good job Amanda and Thank you so much, you deserve golden scissors! Let me tell you how nasty her sweet little breath smelled this morning! WHEW!! But her hair is so healthy and cute!

So glad the spray bottle worked for a little bit. The other thing that we found worked great was putting in a movie that she loves. She didn't move. I don't know if that would work for Kendal but it's worth a try!
I'm glad I'm not the only one that throws out the old candy before each holiday.
BTW...I only recall a little bit of the Sunshine Boy...fill me in!

So Miss Amanda only cuts hair on special occasion now? J/K Kendal is so cute! Did you save the hair?

I still can't believe I ate some of the ranch dip after I am positive little blonde curls went into it. Amanda you were amazing with those sissors! Not much was taken off but those curls now in back are sooooo CUTE!

Of course I saved some hair! I am the most sentimental person I know. I still the the shirt I wore when I received my first kiss!

Congratulations! We just had our first haircut not too long ago! I am sure one day we will be complaining about all the haircuts.
