Ever since she was born Ebony has spent New Years Eve with us.
Her dad was a DJ and he had to work as that was the most important time on the DJ calender.
We would take her to the early fireworks display and then come home and watch the Sydney display on the tv.
This year we didn't even go in to the city to see the early show-we stayed home and did our own thing.
We have always had non alcoholic wine so that Ebony could join in-she wanted to be part of it all.
This year we were watching a music show while waiting for the midnight fireworks and she started dancing away so I took a few photos of her.
She had her braids tied up on top of her head and they were swaying about as she jumped around.
I think she was having a great time until she discovered that I was taking photos of her that is.
Yesterday I spent seven hours undoing those braids -what a nightmare.
Every time she has them done I say I won't do it again but I do.
I reckon there was about two hundred of them.
Her own hair is about seven to eight inches long-the rest is hair extensions.
Her mother is the person who braids her hair and it usually takes about ten hours.
Anyway she has decided to get her hair cut this week(her decision) and I am so happy.
I think she needs to let her hair have a rest from all of this pulling and twisting that goes on.
I will show you a photo later-if she allows me to that is.
