old family photo 001 

#Mennobrarian was the inspiration for this post, with her comment about Kristina’s lovely dress. See it in this photo, taken after Kristina had only been home a few days? Yes, Kristina is now wearing the dress Charity was wearing in this photo, having LONG ago outgrown her own version of the dress. The story behind these dresses is that a couple of friends of mine threw a surprise shower for me when I was due with Chad. They asked people to also consider gifts for Kristina who was going to be soon added to our family as well. A teen girl made the lovely matching dresses that both girls have on in the photo and gave them to us at the shower.

I loved the dresses, and of course wanted them to be what the girls wore for our first official family photo. So I’m very happy that Kristina is able to get a second-go at the dress now that she fits into what Charity was wearing.
