Haircut

Micah has badly needed a haircut for some time now. I don't think we've cut it since the spring! His hair was starting to hang in his eyes and he was starting to look like an unkempt child, so it was time to stop procrastinating and start cutting.

Here he is in a recent picture with his mop of hair:


I was tempted to stop mid-cut and leave him some nice hockey hair...


And after:


He was pretty surprised when he looked at himself in the mirror and exclaimed, "I look like Aidan!" (referring to one of his cousins :)

Also, I had to post another great sleeping picture of Keziah.
And if we didn't think this was funny enough, when Erik went to place her properly on her bed, he discovered a "my little pony" that had been right under her face, leaving semi-permanent pony parts etched on her cheek :)

I also forgot to post a video of Micah from over the holidays. Some friends of ours invited Erik and Micah to join them for an afternoon skate. Micah hasn't been skating since last year and he's never tried single-bladed skates, but he did really well. My friend Crystal took a few pictures and videos and sent them to me. I thought Micah looked like such a cute little future hockey-player!

Love the haircut (although I loved the shaggy hair as well. Well, at least Keziah stays in the bed. Hopefull she won't fall out once she gets her real bed. Thanks for updating. Mom

Micah sure did need a haircut! :) You did a great job! I love the video of Micah skating - Tyler's been doing very well this winter too - and we've been intentional about practicing with him, so it's a skill that stays with him as he gets older!

I picked you up the only two bottles left in the store! I'll get them to you on Monday. Oh and the 14th all day works if it still works for you?

that is a good haircut. mine never turn out that well. I had a hard time cutting Liam's hair when it got really long as well, Steve did it without me knowing one day when I was out.
Micah is pretty good on his skates too. Liam still has a hard time staying up on his feet. They make a skating rink at the school so the kids get to skate every day there.

oh that shag is sooo cute - but a cleaned up Micah is just as cute too! :) and Keziah's little bum...love it. it's funny how they can fall asleep sometimes. Kamryn fell asleep behind her door the other day with her bum in the air. i banged into her when i went to check where she was! she slept right through it! haha...
and future hockey player for sure! how do you be a Toews and NOT play hockey!! :)
