Sunday Shenanigans

Tonight Gabe and Nate (Hannay-our cousin) decided to cut their hair. This was a phenomenon brought on by bored young teens stumbling on hair clippers. OK, it is also the start of the summer sport season-short hair is the preferred style. So ya, they buzzed away in the back yard unsupervised.

For comparison, I posted this not-very-good picture from yesterday. I was taking shots as we waited for Lauren and Devin to come out of the temple. It appears that Nate is taking a picture of the inside of Gabe's mouth, but I could be wrong. This gives additional insight to the creativity of young minds left idle. Anyhoo. There are Gabe and Nate in their long-locked glory.
Here is Nate's version of 'The White Trash Mullet.' I found it to be freaking hullarious! He did eventually shave the lower portion as well, but not without leaving a little rat-tail to braid behind one ear. It too eventually succumbed to the clippers, but not before providing a lot of laughs.

Gabe's haircut proved to be, um, interesting, for another reason. Before he embarked on his buzz, I advised him not to go to short on top. But the 12 year old always knows best. The reason became clear as hair fell away revealing a unique phenomenon. Gabe truly is his father's son and has a little thin spot in the front of his hair.
Ah-the fun of youth! Gabe is quite horrified at his hair but I encouraged him to take heart and enjoy it while he can! :)

we used to buzz out boys hair when they were young...mainly because they have such cute heads and hated haircuts, so it made sense. Anyway, one year we did it a little too short and then headed the poor boys up to camp for the summer. The little cuties were sun burnt and mosquito bitten from ear to ear. OUCH!
