My youngest sister, Liz, got married in November. The wedding was beautiful, and the reception was lovely, but Mary's favorite part was getting a new dress.
Mary's hair is naturally curly. I'm not sure if it will always be so, but it's rather pretty on a 5-year-old.
It is getting quite long, and we are determined to cut it and donate it to "Locks of Love" when it reaches the required length.
In the meantime, I have to "do" Mary's hair for school each day, which means she chooses from the following.... 1 braid, 2 braids, 1 ponytail, 2 ponytails, 1 bun, 2 buns.... you get the idea. Her hair MUST be contained, or we are talking major mess. After all, the girl has P.E. AND recess.
