It's Fashion Friday, time to take a peek at the clothes and outfits the girls put together this week. We used to take turns in the closet, but lately they've been doing all the picking, and the funny thing is that I'm really ok with it. I never thought I'd say that, what with the control-freak tendencies and all, but it just tickles me to see what they do, plus they have so much fun with it. Anyhow, here's the Ro and Ree fashion week at a glance. For #3, Ree dressed herself and her sister. She chose their new red and black polka-dot corduroys, then coordinated all the stuff and told Ro what to wear. Oh and do you see the red and black fleece tops they're wearing? Well they were originally solid color fleeces, but the sleeves were too long so we cut and hemmed them. But then they were too short. Oops. Luckily my mom still had the parts we had cut off, so we reattached them, after swapping the colors so now each fleece was part black and part red, and I think they actually came out really cute. For #5, Ro did the picking for both of them. And you can see in #1, #2, and #5 that Ro is still really into tucking things in. She's even got her pants tucked into her socks. Funny little chiclets... Happy Friday! Does anyone have any great plans for the weekend? PS: An update on the phone situation: After reading your comments, we started with the easy thing and renegotiated our phone contract so now we've got unlimited local and US long-distance for about $40 a month. Duh, no idea why we never did that before! Then we looked hard at what everyone said about the other options and finally decided that we (meaning "me," heh heh) are not ready to replace our landline with an internet-only option. The biggest reason was that while TubaDad is insanely technical and can do anything that requires wires, I am seriously technology-challenged. He travels all the dang time and I swear our internet can smell when he's getting on a plane and instantly takes a dive. All the stories about problems with 911 and not having phones if your internet goes out were enough to convince me to wait a little longer. So thanks for all the info -- it really helped. If anyone else is considering telephone land lines versus Vonage, Magic Jack, Ooma, and the like, check out the comments on this post and you'll find some great pros and cons.
