    LOVE the pictures! I have a ten month-old daughter (named Anna Beth! -spelled separately but we use both for her name) and am just impressed that you can get her to wear that adorable bow in the first place! 🙂 What a hoot!

    Tres darling!! The way Annabeth looked after church is pretty much how I looked when walking INTO the doors yesterday. Some days are like that. I about died laughing seeing the condition of her angelic blue dress in the "after" pictures. Nursery must have been a war zone cause her dress looks like it went through a bunker or two! Thanks for making me bust out laughing, Amanda. Your kids are way too cute!

    Darling baby! She looks good in blue! You are lucky she is willing to leave those headbands and hats on! One of my girls was like that, and the other two always pulled them off! She is very cute, and she looks a lot like her big brother, but prettier! (in a little girl sort of way!)

    I'm feeling ya sister. My Third Boy played on the front lawn of the church yesterday and completely ruined his brand new shorts with grass stain. I just wanted to say 'Dude! Why can't you sit still and stay looking clean and cute for a pair of minutes?'

    Wishful thinking…

    I almost never wanted to iron Caroline's dresses because it was a wrinkled ball by the time we got her out of the car seat!!

    Hey, How did "Bibby" come about? Is it a southern thing grandchildren call their grandmas or maybe a family nostalgic name that you called your grandmas? Just curious, I think it is adorable!

    Tracy says:

    The only question I have, is does she look that because she had a good time or a bad time? You come out looking the same either way!

    She is adorable! She is "living proof" of why we should dress up for church! If we stop, what will happen to all of those cute dresses!

    Enjoy every minute of the smocked dresses days. They go away too quickly!

    Adorable daughter…her blue smocked dress is so beautiful! She is just gorgeous! A baby doll indeed!!
    I so remember those days of dressing up my daughter in all her frills…ribbons & bows – only to have her pull and tug on them until she she was down to her dress and barefeet. How many bows and lace socks she ruined! She went through a period of jeans and t-shirts, but now at 20 she is all "girly" and I love it!

    Heather says:

    What a great set of pictures! That is pretty much how it always happens!

    Except for us, after church the whole family heads to the family farm. You can bet we have learned to grab them and run inside for a change of clothes before we turn them loose, or that day will be the one and only time they ever wear those clothes to church again! 🙂

    God bless,
