Little beauties on Christmas Eve

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.


  1. Darling pictures. And you're right, the matching dolly dresses are a deal-breaker :)

    Love the girls and their dresses. How cute is that with matching doll dresses. I thought maybe your mom had made them. Anyway they are as cute as can be.

  4. Beautiful photos! Love the dresses an the dolls.

  5. Now that you mention it, I do see the hose holder (I went back to the 1st picture to see if I could see it - I'm terrible that way), but if you hadn't said anything, I'd never have noticed it!

    Anyway, the girls are gorgeous, the dresses are gorgeous and the dollies' dresses are gorgeous as well.

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, a bang up New Year celebration and are enjoying a soft landing into 2011!

  6. Those dresses are gorgeous!!! Love them!!!!

  7. I didn't notice the hose holder until you mentioned it. I was too busy looking at your darling girls!

  17. Well....where have I been. I totally missed this post. And I love it!!!!

    The dresses are smashing (esp. with the matching baby doll dresses). TJMaxx is like our Winners up here. It's my favorite store - especially for party dresses. Almost all of mine are from there.

    They look adorable!!
