First Hair Cut is a Cool Cut

1st Hair Cut Cool Cuts 4 KidsSince the girls just turned 4, we decided it was probably time for them to (finally) experience their first hair cut. When ever I need suggestions for places to go with my double crazies, I always ask my twin mommas for advice first.  This time they lead me to Cool Cuts 4 Kids in Mission Viejo, where we had a very successful trip!

This salon was designed with kids in mind. Every station has a TV, and your child gets to pick their favorite movie. We picked Strawberry Shortcake. There are televisions, video games, a train table, and toys to keep the kids busy while they wait. For the younger ones, you can get your hair cut in a racing car chair. My girls, however, were very happy to be in the princess and fairy station.

Today, we went with the Cool Cut Supreme which included a shampoo, hair cut, and blow dry. Our stylist was Carla, and she was awesome. I would definitely recommend her!


My 1st HaircutCool Cuts 4 Kids understands that you want to save these sweet memories and all the important “firsts” in your child’s life, including your child’s first hair cut! We received a certificate commemorating the occasion, and they gave us their first lock of hair, to add to their baby books! (I’m glad we finally got the first lock of hair before they hit kindergarten…)

I’m really glad we found Cool Cuts 4 Kids and will definitely be returning in the future!

Thanks to Carla, for a wonderful first haircut experience!

Hand / Foot Impressions Last a Lifetime

People always tell you to cherish every moment with your children because they will grow up in the blink of an eye.

When the girls were first born, I could not wait for them to reach the milestones, like smiling, rolling, and even walking. When I look at how far my girls have come in the past six and a half months, tears of joy come to my eyes because they are growing so much every day.

When I was little, my parents had my first baby shoe bronzed to preserve a memory. I wanted to find a special way to capture my little girls. My husband and I started talking about the possibility of making hand and footprint impressions and began to do a little research online.

Within a few days of talking about the baby impressions, I came across this post, Ceramic Baby Handprint + Footprint Plate Giveaway on the Tiny Orangesblog!

After doing a little more research, I was stoked, and called Elsie Holdridge, owner and ceramist of Precious Hand / Footprints, to book an appointment on November 5th!

Elsie was absolutely awesome! A true pleasure to work with and she worked so fast with the babies. We are so incredibly happy that we went to Precious Hand / Footprints!

We told her that we wanted three plates, one for us and two were Christmas presents. We were concerned that they may not be done before we left for our Christmas trip. Elsie made a special note on our order form and when they were ready on December 2, she not only called me, but sent me a picture text of one of the plates! Talk about, going above and beyond for customer service!

Precious Hand / Footprints has been in Orange County since 1991, over 20 years now. They will work with you to make sure you get exactly what you are looking for!

We had the girls impressions taken when they were four months old, but you can get them done as soon as you leave the hospital!
