Angry Birds, a Mohawk, and a Crumbled Resolve

I've been gone this a lot this last week visiting family, so the blog posts have not been forthcoming. However, here is a small quick post.

So Hunter needed a haircut. Like super super bad. So while I was cutting it, he realized we could make a sweet mohawk. I was thinking, "heck no!", when I realized how close we were to Halloween. Because I am the coolest Mom ever, I graciously allowed the mohawk until Halloween. Then because I am the craft addict that I am, my wheels started turning on what sweet costume we could do with that mohawk.
This was the beginning of my crumbled resolve to not make Halloween costumes this year. You see, last year, we found about 20 - 30 costumes at a $2 each on the after-Halloween-clearance, and between my mother-in-law and I, we bought out Walmart and filled up their costume baskets. So I said, no way am I spending money on one when they can just pick one from last year.

Then I found this. I didn't have a fighting chance. Hunter is a COMPLETE Angry Birds game addict. Instead of the hat, Hunter can spray red hair coloring in his hair and have the mohawk. I'm off to the fabric store for a lot more red felt in the next couple of days.

Then Ainsley asked if she could be the green fat pig (if you've played the game, you know what I'm talking about). I convinced her a princess was way more fun.

  1. You are an awesome mom! I once cut my brother's hair and left him with a nice mohawk and I thought my mom was going to kill us both once she found out what we'd done. Before she made it home we ventured out to Putt-Putt where he received a ton of compliments and stares. It was great while it lasted!
