Next came Ceanna, who is 11 months old. And she didn't really want anything to do with me or my pesky camera. I'd love to get her on a good day. She was so serious....
Then we went shopping. Micaela has no church dresses. She decided to grow a whole bunch this past Summer and Fall and no longer can fit in the super cute dresses I purchased. So this past Sunday, she went to church looking like she's escaped from a West Virginia family reunion.
You know how hard it is to find decent MODEST affordable girl's clothing? It's VERY tough. We even went to the ole Standard: LLBean. I am a BIG LL Bean follower. Their stuff is reasonable and lasts forever!! And if you ever have to deal with their customer service, they rock! I mean, they're from MAINE for Pete's sake...Good things come from Maine. But alas, LL Bean didn't have any conservative (read: boring) little girl's outfits. I didn't see ANYTHING in the Mall that was appropriate for my tall, thin, INNOCENT 7 year old. If I wanted her to look like a tramp, oh there's plenty for that.....but girls MODEST clothing is hard to come by. I am not dressing her like she's Amish, but I do intend to be strict with her wardrobe. She has a long life ahead of her. I want her to a child while she can. I did find some pants on sale at Target, but I am not a fan of wearing pants to church (the only thing I hold over from being raised Catholic: dresses to church!!)
Ok, I must get off of the computer and find some chocolate. I ate a bunch of crud this weekend. Not good for me. It's back to routine tomorrow....!!
