So fun to have live dolls!

I pretty much love having kids!!! One of the best things about it is finding cute things to dress them in. I know you are thinking you have to spend a bunch to do this, but I am here to tell you that it really isn't true. I love doing everything fancy-shamcy. Ry's hair went in rollers and she sat under the dryer in the salon. It was really fun to have Gator, I wanted the old man effect again, hence his vest. I am going to have to try and find him a sports jacket with elbow patches and some suspenders for Easter. I can't wait. I am also getting excited for the petty skirts. I want to find one of those for Ry for Easter... So much fun. (Hello, momma, focus on Christmas) We had a great time and although I was sad that my Christmas shirt did not fit over my blessings and there was a massive hole is my stockings, AND I had to resign myself to wearing things I already owned I was very happy to have made it to church.. It was a very nice sabbath day. We couldn't take pictures with the whole little fam, because the hubs had calling stuff to attend to and the kids and I had to get out of those fancy clothes so that we didn't end up with any messes. I even posted the grumpy faces, the kids do pretty good. Not everyone smiles all the time... I tried having Gator hold an ornament so he would hold still, yeah, he thought it was a ball and kept chucking it at me. I then tried handing him a present. He did okay, out of about fifty shots these were the best.

Your kids look ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE. I am totally with you on how fun it is to dress up our 'live dolls'. I have to tell you something so funny that Ry said to me on Wed after pre-school. Missy was picking up Ellie and Ry and my Ellie saw them in her car and said, "I think I want to go with them mom." (They were laughing and having a great time eating crakcers in the back seat) I said that we could invite Ry and Ellie to play at our house and I looked at Ry and said, "Would you like to come over sometime and play?" She looked at me and said, "No."
Loved it! Kids are so great and so honest!

Your kids are so cute! If you are looking for a sports jacket I think I saw some at Janie and Jacks at Fashion Place Mall. They can be kind of pricey but the day I was there everything was 25% off!
Have a Merry Christmas!!
