Shaving Party


With Lane's Dad in Chemo, he was starting to loose his hair. I think he was in denial and wanted to wait as long as he could before shaving it off. Once he decided it was time, we all went down to a hair school in Provo that Lane knows the owner so we had enough free hair cuts for everyone. I was having a bit of a panic attack because Hudson has these long curly locks that I was hesitant to cut off. Tim and Steph told me I didn't have to shave his head if I didn't want too. I felt like by me allowing to shave his hair it's my way of showing support to Tim. And hair is such a worldly thing that I can sacrifice, it grows back. . .hopefully curly!!

Before we started Tim was pulling his hair out and showing the kids. Brookie pulled out a bunch and threw it away. I think she was a little grossed out.

You can't blame me for thinking twice (or 3 or 4 or 5) times about cutting those locks off!!!
Here is the before shot of all the boys!



Hudson had a rough time to say the least. He was scared of the buzzers. So sad :(



Look at that lip!
It took me holding his body, Tiff holding his head and 2 sweet girls trying to shave his head.
Daddy trying to calm him down, showing him that he was doing too!



And the mohawk shot!!! Notice Hudson doesn't have a mohawk because obviously we were having a rough time.
And the rest must go. . .



Jayden all done!
This seriously was a huge ordeal! I knew I was going to cry because I seriously love Hudson's hair. But I was crying because he was freaking out and I felt bad that we were doing it. But by that point it was too late to turn back. We just had to push forward and get it done.
Once Jayden was done, he came over and held Hudson's hand and talked to him. Hudson calmed right down and stopped screaming.
It was seriously the cutest thing ever!
And then he got him to smile and laugh!!

How cute is he!!!??
The finished product!!


After it was all said and done, I was sooo glad I did it! He looks so freaking adorable!! Him and Lane look identical now! I feel like with his shaggy hair you over looked his facial features, now all you see is that cute face of his!!

Tiff and my brother in laws had a shaving their head party. It takes away some of the pain to have others join ya in losing the hair. We are praying for you guys and lanes dad:(. Your kids are so cute. With or without hair.
