    Cute as a button!!!! Thanks for sharing.

    I liked the title too…"Sunday Best"…unfortunately our church just had a little tiff about what somone 'should wear to church'…..not just any someone but the preacher……we are looking for a new pastor and some people were 'bothered' that one very good and godly candidate did not dress up enough for his day to preach…..honestly, some young people got up and walked out(not out of the preaching service, but out of the business meeting later when someone brought up the topic). They were so disgusted with even the discussion……As my son said, "I love God but sometimes I hate church."
    What are your thoughts on 'wearing your best to church"??
    PS- I wear nice clothes but not necessarily a dress. And I couldn't care less what someone else wears as long as it covers what it's supposed to!

    She is beautiful, but I think she needs her Bibby! =)

    Too adorable! Do I detect some red in that hair?

    Our church has playgrounds….so we get them all dressed up in their Sunday best to go on the playground…..

    Thanks for sharing!

    Living proof (ha, no pun intended there) that she's adorable not matter what she wears or how dirty or wrinkly she is! I know I struggle with this with my boys too. But, no matter what, when I pick them up from the nursery with their heads all sweaty and their faces covered in cheerios (or snot), I still just wanna kiss their whole faces and show them off to the world.

    Thanks for sharing your adorable daughter with us! She and Jackson are such cuties!

    Amanda says:

    Annabeth's hair is light brown, although sometimes it looks reddish in certain light and in pictures.

    Pat, there is everything from casual to formal dress at our church. (Last week I had Annabeth in her jeans.) I don't think it's a big issue for us, although maybe for some people it is and I don't realize it. God knows the attitudes of our hearts when we get dressed for church. I think whether we are dressing in jeans or suits, we all have the capacity to honor or dishonor Him with our clothing.

    Look at me breaking my own rule! Anyone can email me at [email protected] if they have questions. Love y'all!

    You have gorgeous kids Amanda, but I probably didn't need to tell you that. I pray that the glimmer they have in their eyes now will be brought to fruition as they walk in the path of their parents… Loving Jesus and letting the Holy Spirit shine through.

    bigdogmom says:

    Oh my goodness! She is just too cute! She loves the camera, doesn't she? I could never get my girls to keep bows in their hair. Do you always have a camera with you? You seem to get so many great shots. My camera always seems to be on the other side of the room or some place out of reach.

    Amanda- Your children are gorgeous! With mine grown (24 & 21)& not ready for marriage (thank goodness), it warms my heart to see pictures of Annabeth & Jackson. Keep them coming!
    And praise to you & Curtis for being such loving parents.

    The sticking-up hair is the best kind for rubbing my chin into and smelling that wonderful baby smell!

    My youngest "baby" is 13 now — he doesn't smell so great at times ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pam Houston says:

    All sweetness and sugar plums. Couldn't you just eat her up? Even with the bow off and slept in dress, she's the one!

    What a joy!

    How sweet is she? I need to tell you-I SO needed that this morning! Having a rough Monday! Thanks for the smiles!

    Amber says:

    Too sweet! I love pictures, and appreciate you sharing with us. I'm sure your kids will love having all these precious memories when they grow-up. The digital world of cameras makes it difficult for me to control how many pictures I take. Back in the 35mm days–I never would have taken as many as I do now.

    Ha! Looking at her reminds me of a photo my mom took when I was a little older than Annabeth…the only difference is I had flowers wrapped around my little head:)
    If I can figure out how to share that picture with you I will:)

    Mindy says:

    Hey! she looks great! Sometimes, i get my girls dressed and ready to go and by the time I'm dressed my self — they have already gotten their dresses all wrinkled and the bows aren't in anymore…..=)

    I'm a mom of 3 and sometimes it just didn't seem worth it to get them all 'dolled' up just to have them crawl around in the floor during church. But, mind you, I did it every week just the same! She's adorable and looks so much like Jackson, don't you think?

    How precious can she be? Amanda she has those beautiful eyes like Jackson has. I am in our church Nursery most Sunday mornings and sometimes I feel I come out of there looking like that too!

    She is just a little princess. Thanks for sharing pics. I neve get tired of seeing them.

    Adorable! I like to justify my lack of ironing ability with the idea that there's no sense in ironing what will just get wrinkled in the car-seat :-p

    "Grammy" Sue B says:

    My "before church" looks all-together, pressed, every hair in place.
    My "after church" is pretty much like AnnaBeth…wrinkles, questionable hairstyle, no more lipstick.
    It's all that praisin', worshipin', huggin' & lovin' for a few hours.
    Little AnnaBeth…it only gets better!
