Beauty Hurts

Growing up my mother would fix our hair all the time and I HATED IT. I would whine and complain, but my mom would always say "Beauty Hurts". Soo in my house the girls aren't allowed to complain while I fix their hair, instead I make them say "Beauty Hurts" so when ever I hit a knot in their hair or have to pull on it I hear "Beauty HURTS!" or sometimes "Beauty Really Hurts!"

Easter is one of those days that "Beauty Hurts", but not this year! This year we did curlers in their hair the night before. They looked quite cute, and they didn't complain (they don't like the curling iron). Kelly slept well with the curlers in, but Paige was a little more fidgety through the night. I didn't really want her to have them in, but Paige insisted and my mom looked at her hair and said it felt like it was in good shape (some know that I have had some problems and concerns with Paige's hair)

So those are the before pictures. Tommy did have a couple curlers in his hair for a few minutes, but that didn't last and Adam wasn't thrilled.

And here are some pictures from Easter today. They aren't the best. In my "Ideal World" The sun would have been shining and it would have been warm and little bunnies would have been hopping around the yard. BUT it wasn't like that. It was 30 degrees out the wind was blowing so we had to move indoors. I tried to make them smile through the pain, but it didn't work.

Yes, I know I'm a mean mom...

Well Happy Easter Everyone! We love you! and miss most of you...

I remember the pink curler nights that we had when we were little. And they worked out so well for your little ones. I remember my hair always turning into a giant puffball.

The girls are beautiful!

That pic of your poor, helpless, shivering children is hilarious. And way to go on those cute dresses, by the way.

I totally remember wearing those foam pink curlers. I would wear them overnight and my head always hurt the next day, but like you said "beauty hurts", right?

Those girls had GREAT curls on Sunday! I can't believe they were sponge rolled! Man, I used to put those things in my hair and I would just end up with a frizzy fro. I looked like Nellie Olson on crack.
You looked HOT...smokin HOT in your Easter dress!

LoL. Your shivering girls made me have a good out loud belly laugh. I send my sympathies to them. And the picture of Tommy with his sisters was just funny, too.
Did you sew their dresses? because i wouldn't be surprised after the rooster hat sewing job.
