Sophie's Locks of Love
Judging by the overwhelming outpour of comments on my last posting (*snort*) I gather that you guys prefer "perky Patty" over "pouty Patty," so I thought I'd share with you guys a little event that has brought so much joy into our lives.
My oldest daughter, Sophie, just aged about 10 years overnight. Not that I secretly long for my baby to grow up (because I really don't) but this decision was so mature on her part that it has left me in awe.
Sophie found out about Locks of Love (follow the link to read more about it if you are not familiar with their organization) and immediately declared that she wanted to "help the sick children" so off we went to our local Cookie Cutters to make her – and another lucky girl's – dreams come true. It just so happened that this week coincided with a fund raising event sponsored by Cookie Cutters and Dawn Bergeron Photography so we were able to document the whole process.
I couldn't be happier with the job my sweet and talented friend, Dawn, did with these pictures. They are just precious and will be such a special keepsake for us. Sophie's locks of love measured in at 24 inches (scalp to tip) so we decided to donate 12" of hair (you need a minimum of 10" to meet the requirements).
Sophie is beyond thrilled with her new "big girl do" and mama and daddy are incredibly proud or her "big decision".
Check out Dawn's blog for a recap of the event and lots more pictures. Thanks so much, Dawn!! We love the pictures!
