How time flies...

It's funny how we see our kids compared to how others see them... isn't it. This first picture was taken in August of 2004, just a few weeks after they came home. Here's what I saw (see) three cute little boys with floofy hair! At the time everyone else saw babies...
Right after this picture was taken, they got their first hair cuts under our parentage! Pretty much from that point on they've had short hair... very short hair. If it got long enough to brush then it was time to get another hair cut. Short boy hair is easy, and we thought/think it fit them nicely!

Well times are changing, and so we decided a while back to let it grow out a little bit... they've asked from time to time to have it a little longer so we figured, what the hay, lets try it out for a while then whack it off before Christmas pictures. Now all three have VERY different hair. Bobcat has course tight curls, Bubba has fluffy soft curls, and Snooker has straight fine hair that doesn't curl until it gets really long (mostly it just sticks out all directions). When everyone showed up for Bobcat's birthday they were so excited to see the boys hair (honestly it didn't dawn on my that anybody would make such a fuss over it)... and of course the boys picked up on the attention and I'm sure there would be an uprising at this point if we tried to take it down a level! I did try to find a better shot of them with longer hair, but this is the best I could do...

One of the comments we are getting about them is how it makes them look older... to me, when I see the floofy little heads running around here... I see are those cute little boys running round from 6 years ago... funny how things look...

Oh no, I think it does make them look older. I don't know why though. What handsome young men they are growing into!

I think it makes each of them look more unique, obviously. Handsome boys.
