Picture Share!

We got a small amount of snow, but it was the ~perfect~ snowman snow. Wet and compact. But the first thing we did was pull the girls all over on their little blowup sleds:



Then we got started on the snowman. Allie was into helping, Ella had no interest:



Allie lost interest too, but I finished him up, complete with a cold kiss:



Later was bathtime, to warm up those fingers and toes:



I bought the girls a "summer dress" for the upcoming season. But my girls ~love~ dresses (no idea where they got that from) and I let them try them on. I practically had to pin them down to get them off later!



In the same shipment as the summer dresses, I bought these skirts. I don't know what they are called. They aren't really tutus, are they? Anywho - they love them. They want to wear them all the time and I let them. They've worn them to school, to the store, to gymnastics class, everywhere. You should see them in movement. They bounce up and down each time they move. Overwhelmingly cute.



And of course, showing off their sisterly love.

It's a crinoline! I remember playing dress up in those as a kid...mainly because my parents danced in a square dance group when I was growing up, hehehe.

Great pics. And beautiful girls. I cannot tell you how much I would have loved that tutu as a girl myself!

katie - so funny you say that! When I try to explain them to someone, I tell them they look like the underskirts of square dancing outfits!

They're petticoats! I had one that had been my mother's when she was a girl in the 50s. I would get full skirts and wear it underneath.
Super cute.

Jen said...

They are crazy adorable. And they always are having so much fun together! It's so nice to have a sister close in age like that.

What cuties! I'm slightly afraid that if I have a daughter she'll be super girly. I am so not girly so I'm not sure how I'll handle that.

Kaci said...

Your girls are beautiful! Looks like you had much better "snowman snow" than we did!

These pictures are SO cute!!! OMG, I love them all. I can't believe how much they've grown, even since this past fall!

Jess said...

OH.MY.GOSH.

I wandered here from Mel's blog, and those skirts are too precious for WORDS! TOO PRECIOUS!

My almost-nine-month-old would have nothing to do with it now, but later...oh yes, later. That is wonderfully cute.
