the sweet gift of dresses

Our girls received some fun mail a few weeks ago and I've been trying to carve out time to share with you the cool story. Between Great Wolf Lodge and Sam's birthday I feel like I've had a hard time even thinking.

Anyhoo....the dresses.

Ashley Nash
has been reading my blog for a while. I popped over to check her's out and noticed these adorable dresses. When I inquired about sewing and if she sells them, she graciously offered to make my girls some of their very own. I couldn't wait for them to arrive.

The girls tore open the package and put them on right away. I should have known to take a picture then b/c they have been worn and washed since. Here's Lily displaying her dress today (Eloise's dress is exactly the same). She really loves to act it up for the camera. Pardon my lack of great photo skills, Ashley's really are much better.

I don't know why she looks so sad here.

Now she's happy

Ashley is a working mom who would love to stay at home. She loves to sew and sees this as a great opportunity to open that door to being a SAHM. She just recently opened an Etsy shop called Monkey Style Boutique and is hoping to spread the word. The least I could do for her wonderful gift, was help spread the word here on my blog. So head on over and check out her cute girl digs. I LOVE the twirly skirts!

Forgot to mention, she didn't forget Sam. She made him a cute little tie shirt just like this one. Again, I should remember to take pictures in the moment. But her pictures are so much better.
