New Hair Do! New Attitude!
Kailey came to me around Christmas and begged for a haircut. She wanted her hair short like all of her friends. I really was not ready to cut it because I knew she would look so grown up. A couple of weeks ago I decided to consider it (she hasn't stopped asking since Christmas). Last week we made an appt to have it cut on Wednesday after school.And so the countdown began. Every day she asked me how many more days until my haircut. She was more excited about this then she was about Christmas! Every where I went in our little town people would come up and say I heard that Kailey is getting her hair all cut off! I think she had told the whole county-lol! Well, early Wednesday afternoon Brandon received a phone call from the lady who was going to cut Kailey's hair. It seems she had something in her eye and was on the way to the eye doctor to get it taken care of. She didn't know if she would be able to cut Kailey's hair later that evening or if it would have to wait until later in the week. It depended on how things went at the doctor. Boy did Brandon dread having to pick up Kailey from school & tell her the news! Thankfully she called not too long after school let out and was able to cut her hair at 6 that evening! Kailey loves it! I think it is adorable yet I am not sure I can handle the new attitude that came with it! Kailey was spunky & had an attitude with her long hair! But now she can't seem to walk by a mirror without spinning her head & she will say momma don't I look cute with my short hair! Thursday she spent the whole morning worrying about the fact that her hair may be quickly growing back! Then Thursday evening we went out to dinner with some friends of ours, she had finished eating and asked to go play checkers. A little later I hear some people at a table near ours laughing, I look up to see my Kailey doing the chicken dance for the whole place to see! I didn't know she had those kind of moves in her! It's good to be laughing again! And Kailey can always find new ways to make us all have a great laugh! We have said from day 1 she keeps our life interesting and I can honestly say that still holds true! She wanted me to put her before pics along with the after on here. We are hoping to donate her hair to locks for love so I will let you know how that turns out. If you happen to run in to us around town, please be sure to notice her hair if you don't she will spin her head until you do-lol! Happy Hairdays to all!

Brandon is the most wonderful husband & daddy anyone could ask for! I am so thankful that in God's sovereign plan he brought the two of us together. I am so thankful for every day with him and we joke all the time about how we can't wait to grow old together! He is my Best Friend!
My husband Brandon & I live in Protection, Kansas where he was called by God to pastor a church in July 2008. We have a wonderful family including Samantha 13 years old & loves sports, Kailey who is 7 years old & loves to cheer & dance ALL THE TIME, Trenton who is 5 years old & loves John Deere Tractors & Trevor who went to Heaven on January 4, 2010 when I was 17 weeks & 2 days pregnant. I love my family & I love my life in Kansas.
The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian makes me a different kind of woman. For I have accepted God's idea of me, and my whole life is an offering back to Him of all that I am, and all that He wants me to be.-Elisabeth Elliot
