A Feathered Frenzy

Quick post before I head outside to exchange all our light bulbs for blue ones.....

I'm sure lots of you have seen those really cute, really skinny colored feather extensions that you can clip into your hair.

In honor of Light It Up Blue and Autism Awareness Month, I asked the big girls if they wanted to do blue feather extensions in their hair.

They thought it was a fun idea but their dad wasn't so sure.

I think he was picturing something like this:

Or maybe even this:

I believe he was pleasantly surprised (and secretly relieved) to see this when he came home from work:

This is Reagan's extension up close.... 

and here it is mixed in with her hair.

This is Ryley's extension up close.  I don't have a photo of hers mixed in.

Even some of Reagan's friends joined in the fun.  Here's Hannah...

and Meagan....

and Gabi.

It was a fun afternoon - listening to giggly girls, hearing school stories, and playing with hair.  

And it's all for a good cause.

Are you doing something special for Light It Up Blue?  Let's hear it!
