Easter Dresses

Look what I found today!!!! Dave sent me out of the house for a bit this afternoon, something I really needed today.  I was feeling so gloomy.  I stopped in at Winners just on the very off chance  that they would have matching spring dresses for my girls. I've looked been looking for this off and on since I was pregnant with Rachel.  I have almost given up hope because Rachel's shoulders are so narrow.  But today I found some.  Rachel's dress is even a 6 month - believe it or not! (this kind of sleeveless seems to work for her, and it's long enough!) Abigail's dress was the only one left on the rack that was bigger than size 12 months!!

I feel so excited that my girls have special matching dresses - what a treat! For so many months I kept my eyes open for matching dresses for a funeral (yeah, that kind of took the joy out of it) and so it is still a bit hard not to think of these dresses with that connection.....but here they are both very much alive and so beautiful. 
Thank-you God for this beautiful gift today! 
The dresses also came with matching headbands but Abigail wasn't a fan of wearing hers right now....maybe I can convince her for next Sunday though:)

 
he he..i was in such a hurry to take a picture while she was happy,
I left the tag on...

Pleased as punch....
You wouldn't know by looking at her now that she almost died this weekend!
What an amazing little girl.
