Kya's first 'do

Well, I finally decided to do Kya's hair. Her hair is so soft and fine that it doesn't really NEED to be done, I just wanted to try. And, Makenna has been asking me to do it as well. Besides, what else is there to do on New Years Day right?

Let's just say it didn't go well. She didn't mind that I was messing with her hair, but she HATED that I would hold her head still and that she couldn't follow her sister around the room. There were tears immediately, which would stop when Makenna did. So, needless to say I recruited Makenna and worked quickly! :) Even Makenna got in on the action after I got them in. She LOVES doing hair and pretended to braid them for Kya after I got the little pony tails in. Someday she will be a great helper during hair time!

It's not great, but we got it done! The parts are horrible, but her hair is so many different lengths that it's all we could do. She looks so different with her little pony tails in, but I don't think they will last long, because she has such slippery hair. She just looked so cute (and so much older-yikes!) that I couldn't resist!

So, here are the pics--the good, the bad, and the ugly. And, as bad as it looks no children were harmed in this hair doing time! :)

Too cute!
I have tried little piggies in Nora's hair but it is too fine and slippery and they won't stay-what's your secret??
