Trying on Mommy's dress

Hannah and Ivy tried on some fancy white dresses they had. Hannah's from a friend and Ivy's was the flower girl dress from Kari and Dan's Wedding and then worn again for Nathan and Elise's wedding. Poor Annette didn't complain but I had an Idea. I went to the hall closet and pulled out a plasic bag beckoning to Annette to follow me into the bedroom. I pulled out my wedding dress and watched Annie's eyes grow large, "Will this be my Easter dress?!", she hoped aloud.
Well, it wouldn't fit her of course, but it was fun to see her glowing face and surprise her sisters with it! And, no, she isn't that tall, she was standing on a stepstool under there.

Oh, and yes, I tried it on...Annette stood behind me and said, "OH! Mom! Oops! You forgot to button up the back!"

"Ummm....No, I didn't, Annette. That is the best I can do." Ugh.

I think Sharon and I have about 100 photos of us in our mom's wedding dress. I think one a year (each!) from when we were about 5 years old. We LOVED that dress. And don't worry - I don't think anyone can ever fit into their wedding dress again, haha.

I'm sure she loved it! She probably felt very special wearing mom's dress. The last time I put me dress on was before kids. I'm sure I couldn't get it zipped now.

What a special moment for Annette. There's nothing like a bridal gown to make a girl feel like a princess! Beautiful!
