Alise was almost a year old in this picture. I miss that red tuft of hair. We drove to Jackson, Mississippi, to find her first Easter dress because I told Wayne that I wanted it to be special. As soon as I saw it hanging in the window of a children's specialty shop, I knew it was the one. The picture makes it look lighter than it really was, but it was beautifully smocked with little pink roses and I loved the butterfly sleeves. I still have this dress tucked away in the attic.
Welcome to three year old antics! I had forgotten about this dress. I have my mom to thank for the hat.
Oh, what a day this was! I remember it so clearly. THIS was the year the annual Easter pictures at Elsong Gardens ended for the Horton family! Someone was in meltdown mode that Sunday afternoon and it wasn't MOI! I was SO aggravated with Alise that day because she wouldn't cooperate and absolutely, positively wanting NOTHING to do with having her picture made! She didn't want to wear the dress, didn't want the bow, didn't care about the Easter bunny, NADA! This is the best picture I got from that day. And one that I will forever treasure because she was apologizing. By the way, that is not a beer bottle in my hand! I was so mad, I coulda drank, though! It was actually a Coke bottle.
And so that is it! Five years old and Alise's first non-lavendar Easter dress. Actually, I think I wore lavendar this year and Baby Girl wore pink. She was looking for eggs in our front yard when I snagged this pic.
Thanks so much for stopping by and reading. I love reading all you comments! They put a smile on my face! Linking up this week with Tuesday Talk, What I Wore Wednesday, Waiting on Wednesday, and Party At My Place.
