Wearing Christmas dresses the Sunday before Christmas is a tradition. Taking pictures of those dresses in front of the Christmas tree is also a tradition. You almost can't have Christmas without these pictures. But getting the girls dressed and pictures taken, plus yourself looking presentable, and getting to church for choir practice at 9:15 is nothing short of a Christmas miracle. But we did it, and whew.
Emma outgrew the Costco Christmas dresses. I had a moment of, "Oh man, now what?" Not that the girls get new dresses every year, but there has been something that qualifies as a Christmas dress in their closet every year since babyhood. It took some puzzling and shopping, but I found Emma a red sweater and black tulle skirt with a sparkly waist band and called it good. Thanks Target.
And here's the one I posted on Instagram. Aren't they a cute bunch?
Look- I even curled my hair. Go me.
