Happy Birthday to our first-born. I cannot believe he is 8-years-old today. How can this be? We are so proud of this boy. He is growing up so fast, and growing into such a special young man. He is smart, cute (don't tell him that-it's not cool!), outgoing, theatrical, thoughtful, God-loving, high-maintenance, loving, goofy, energetic...I could go on, but these are a few of the big ones. This kid is going to go far. Can't wait to see where that may be!

I just had to tell someone about it, since I'm not on facebook anymore.
Ava broke my heart.
She begged and pleaded.
She made me cut her hair.
It is sUPER short! way shorter than we planned.
I'll show you what it looks like when she gets home from school. I was too sad to take a picture last night. I'm such a weirdo. I remember feeling this same way the last time she made me do this!

Well, what do you think? Ava giggles every time she passes a mirror!
(okay, so I maybe went overboard on the after pics, but seriously, how do you choose?!)
