Nothing brings more excitement to my children's faces than a special package from a loved one. They definately get this from me, as I have almost a ritual of things to be done before opening such a prized possession. Well, this week we received one from Elise's godmother Mary Jo. She was so thrilled that all of her ensembles this week have contained something from the box. These are just the ones that she specifically asked me to take pictures of as a thank you.
One of my favorite items in my closet is my goucho pants, they are the comfort of sweats but with a bit more beauty and flair. Elise now has a pair, and asked me to match her for church.
She also wore this dress for confirmation Sunday. She wanted to wear it out for a field trip, but I did ask her to wait for a more dressy occasion. She literally counted down the days for this one, and then danced down the stairs when the day finally came. (Notice that she is en pointe or on her tippy toes - a recently aquired skill)
She and Ziah smile for their mamma.
Funny thing, I had made this tutu for her in October. Cute, right? She thought it was way too itchy and did not want to wear it. So, I sent it to Mia - Mary Jo's daughter, and thought she may get some use out of it. This week it arrived in the clothes box and Elise thought it was sensational. She wore it to dance, even though it was June and had not decreased in the itch factor!
