In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

Make Way For Fancy Nancy

Last week was Celebrate Literacy Week.
Friday was "Be Your Favorite Book Character Day."

My little darling is a voracious reader so its hard to pick a favorite.

The true determining factor was the fact that it was Thursday evening, I was working on an assignment for my school, and I still hadn't made it to the store for costume stuff.
We dove into the toy box and dug out some old favorites.
My husband was such a blessing.
He sewed all of the embellishments on to the dress while I typed my paper feverishly.
He even sewed some beads to the sides of her glasses.
I Love That Guy.

On Friday morning I rolled, teased, and piled her hair high in proper Nancy fashion.
Off she went with her ruffled socks, gloves, and tiara.

And what a great dad! My husband wouldn't know which end of a needle to use; although I'm sure he would make an effort. =)
