Sunday & Talented Family


Do you see this lovely dress & cute Halloween tie Rob is wearing? The dress was made by my dad. Isn't it adorable & if you saw it up close you'd see how well made it is too. The tie was made by my mother-in-law (it only looks misshapen because of Berto's refusal to get dressed this morning).

I got compliments on both the dress & the tie at church & I have to admit they do look terribly cute. Thanks family for thinking of the kiddos & making them such lovely things.

P.S. Rob does wear shoes to church, we just couldn't get them on his feet until we actually got to church. This kid HATES clothes (sound familiar?)

April- He got so many compliments where people wanted to know where he got it! So cute!

Katie- I know they are both so cute!

Monica- me too! Having a cute tie (out of cute, not tacky fabric) for each holiday. Love it.

Smithy- Dude, check out the post above!

Debbie- we're lucky because they were the first grandkids on either side & the only on my side ever. So it's neat.

I want that pink dress for Reagan. So jealous that your dad can sew like that.... my dad can do many a things but sew is not one of them =)

Olivia Carter said...

Amber- I know, it looks so cute on too- it has some tulle so it puffs out nicely too. SO CUTE!

Oh man I've been wanting to get some ties for Robby! He keeps asking to wear one to church! And Syd's dress is too cute!

Olivia Carter said...

Esther- we should get a pattern & learn to make them ourselves!
