Anyway, I had to run into town yesterday to buy the basics (milk, bread, etc.) since our return from vacation. I stopped in the kids' section at Wal-Mart to buy the kids new socks and underwear for school (and spent over $70 in just that stuff alone!). I noticed a plain white tee for Spenser. I've been trying to find a plain white tee for ages. And nothing was plain. Or it wasn't the right style. For $4, it's perfect.
I embellished it with three rows of purple ruffles. As soon as I finished, I realized she might not have anything to wear with this new shirt.
So I whipped up a skirt, too. The skirt itself is made from some old Amy Butler fabric I bought ages ago and was too afraid to cut. The ruffled hem is just some purple polka dot fabric (leftover from our Easter outfits a year ago).
I'm saving it for Spenser for pre-school. She's excited about her new outfit. And, apparently, so is Sawyer. When I held it up to check the hem, he jumped up and down, while clapping his hands, and squealed in a girly, high-pitched voice, "Is it for me??"
Something tells me he needs to hang out with his older brothers a little more.
(And thanks for all your votes on yesterday's post. It seems that photo #3, the one from the falls, is the winner. As soon as I stop being dumb, which may be awhile, I will change the banner. It seems that it's been so long since I've changed it, I've forgotten how to do it. And how I "remember" is not correct.)
