three little red Valentine’s Day dresses {a sneak peek}

I made my girls some fun and festive dresses for a Valentine’s Day party at my husband’s parent’s house this past weekend.
It was a sea of red

Mia, like I have mentioned is six and a half now and is so over skirts, dresses and most hair accessories these days.  She was a bit skeptical of wearing a dress for the big party. However, when she paired it with some skinny jeans and her new favorite boots from Aunt Adie, she gave it two thumbs up. 
I was relieved, because there’s nothing like taking the time to sew up something fun for her to wear, and then her vetoing it in the end. 
Have I mentioned how excited I am for the teenage years?

Here is a glimpse at a series of the sea of red as we were about to walk out the door…

I had to throw in this one to remind myself of the long photogenic lacking journey I’ve taken with Gracie.

Sophie was so excited to wear her Dorothy shoes for this red-filled occasion.

Duckie, her flower necklace, lips purse and all.
(Proof of her hoarding problem.)

And here is a shot of all the cousins at Nana and Papa’s house. 
(The only part of Maddie you can see is her boppers from behind the table!)
I must say, after looking at this picture again, I couldn’t help but sigh and mumble to myself, “Poor Ethan.”

Are you ready for Valentine’s Day?!
