I am not normally into the typical "girlie" things, but I couldn't have been happier when my friend/neighbor gave our girls these dresses a couple of weeks ago. Her mom made them - down to the smocking and hand-sewn hem. I am in awe at her handiwork and generosity - it must have taken her HOURS to do them. Of course I wanted them to wear the dresses right away, but we had a major cold spell the last couple of weeks so today was the first chance they had to wear them to church. I wish we could dress them like this every day! These will definitely be a family heirloom.
