Holly Hobbie Dress

We didn't do much to post about this weekend so I had to come up with something different. I noticed a dress in Rebecca's closet that she hadn't tried on yet. This dress was made for me by my grandmother when I was about 2. We've always called the dress my "Holly Hobbie" dress. Over the years, each of my girls have worn the dress with pictures taken. I went on a hunt a few days ago and found pictures of Taylor and Teresa but couldn't find Jaquelyn. Then I remembered that I used to used to develop all my film. Lo and behold I found her picture on their website. I took pictures of Rebecca wearing the dress and now I can post pictures of each of us wearing the dress. Cool, huh? Unfortunately, the bonnet disappeared along the way.

Here I am wearing it with the bonnet at 2 or 3

Here is Taylor at 3 or 4 with my grandparents. This is my grandmother that made the dress for me.

Here is Teresa wearing the dress. Again at my grandparents house a few years later.

Jaquelyn wore it for Easter when she was 3.

And finally it was Rebecca's turn.

Oh, that is just precious! I loved seeing Grandma and Grandpa...just how they should be remembered!

That ugly couch of theirs???? It's one of the things that I have always wanted to have from their house. I have it in my many memories of sleepovers, popcorn and twins games, and the best grandparents ever...
