dress ups




On the last day of November we decided it was time to put the Christmas Tree up. However, when the Daddy was rummaging in the top of our cupboards, he called out "Look what I've found". It was the box with my wedding dress, organza wrap and veil. (I didn't wear the wrap and the veil at the same time....just wanted to make that clear!).
So the girls decided they would like to try the wedding gear on. It brought back lovely memories for me of trying on my mother's wedding dress and veil. I am a bit of a sucker for creating these little family traditions. At first, little G. was E.'s admiring bridesmaid but before long, she had the wrap around her own chubby shoulders. I'm so glad I grabbed the camera. So....probably in danger of turning my blog (which was originally to be more about my garden than my children) into an indulgent, nauseating collection of cute photos of my daughters. Sorry about that.

PS One of the photos is blurry because the flash didn't go off, but I sort of like it. Closest thing I'm going to get to creating an arty farty effect in my photography
PS G. doesn't have a dirty face. She has a bruise from falling out of our bed one night.

i love the photos.

my daughter routinely falls out of bed. i've started stacking stuffed animals by the bed, so as to soften the fall a bit.

Hi Tammie,

I hadn't thought of the stuffed toy trick. I'll have to try it.

lol! they look SOOOO adorable!!!
and never mind, little girls SHOULD have dirty faces from playing around too much, from eating cookies, from plain having fun... that said, my own two are perpetually either getting their faces dirty OR scraping them from monkeying around...
