Remember the fancy outfits we were searching for? Well you could have knocked me over with a feather when the girls looked at all the options and then chose traditional, silky, velvety gowns. The dresses did come with matching babydoll dresses, which counts for an awful lot in the five-year-old world. Heh. Anyhow, Ro chose a rich red dress with tulle overskirt and Ree picked out a black velvet dress with a swirled cream skirt. (Both came from T.J.Maxx and were only $29 -- thank you to Kristi for the awesome tip.)
It’s an indisputable fact that I am seriously biased, but I think Ro and Ree (and their dollies) looked positively adorable in their Christmas fancies. It was kind of chilly on Christmas Eve, but the girls couldn’t resist a bit of backyard twirling (and I couldn’t resist grabbing a few pics of them) before we hopped in the minivan and headed out.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break with those you hold dear. More holiday pics and stories to come later. I took a huge blogging vacation over Christmas and have a smidge of catching up to do.
PS: Please ignore the big ole hose holder in the background of that first photo. For heaven’s sake, you’d think I would have noticed it before now and moved it slightly out of eyesight.
