A brand new Xander.

Xander has been looking rather shaggy lately. We have been meaning to get him in for a cut, but have put it off and put it off. So today I decided to just do it myself....eeekkkk! Thankfully you can't really screw up a buzz cut, right?
Almost done...this is about where I had Jason come and finish it up...he did a better job of cleaning it up and fading than I did LOL.

Look at this handsome guy....so cute, but why does a haircut have to age him like 2 years? LOL
Haddie is not one for change, for herself...or even for others LOL. She was freaking out that she wanted her brother back and that people would give him a new name and that he wasn't the same. She got over it soon enough thankfully...silly goose.
