Once upon a time my sister and I would even go to the salon on Christmas Eve to get our hair styled for the special night.
Since my Grandpa's death and my Grandma's stroke Christmas Eve has changed a lot. But that is ok. Now it is less formal and more hectic (since we've added James and Juliet to the family since then).
And, even with all the changes it is still my favorite.
For the fancy party I tried a crown braid (a french braid that wraps around her entire head). It looked AMAZING until a diaper change and the drive over to my mom's. Car seats can ruin awesome hair. Glad I got to enjoy it on our little neighborhood walk before the party.
