Poodleskirts and Ponytails

We had a 50's Party/Sock Hop at our church a couple weekends ago. They encouraged us to dress-up and have fun with it so I decided to make the girls poodle skirts. They were so easy and the girls loved them. Chloe really wanted to wear hers to church the next day.



Ryan always tells me that Channing and Chloe are my little dress-up dolls and I have to admit they kind of are. I love little girls.

Was the poodle skirt at the center of the "big fight" Chlo told Sheriee about? They look so cute!! I'm very impressed with your sewing skills, Sewing with Nancy. You look cute too! Where can I get me some long thin legs like that?

Oh my goodness. You never cease to amaze me. The skirts are adorable. Good Job! The girls look so adorable. I know what you mean about dressing the girls up. I would do that same thing if I had one. I do get to borrow Bean every now and again. I too was wondering if the darling poodle skirt was the reason for the Sunday Fight?

Your girls are absoultely georgous!! I am so sad that I dont get to see them for a long while. They are so much fun. And you tell Ry there is nothing wrong with you playing dress-ups with your girls. I know they love it just as much as you do. And if the girls in the house are happy what more could Ryan want???

Cutest thing ever - Chloe coming in to the Young Women room and announcing to my entire presidency "We didn't go to Sacrament today because we had a big fight at our house". We nearly died laughing. Of course, Grandma knew who was the one with the little attitude:) We all looked pretty cute at the party. Grandma as "Lucy" and PaPa as "Roy Orbison were pretty funny. The girls looked the very cutest!!!!
Love, Sheriee (G'ma)
