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.
Mia, striking a pose.
Sophie was so excited to wear her Dorothy shoes for this red-filled occasion.
Proof of a very improved photo-posing Gracie.
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?!
