This picture was taken a few Sunday ago on the way to church. When pulling her hair back (she rather wear it down) I snuck in a hair bow. Later in the bathroom at church, she caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror and said- "I do not like bows!" Climbing into her booster seat in dad's truck- she pulled it out and handed it to me. So sad to see them go- but will try to get her to wear them to church and forgo them during the week- sounds like a good compromise to me. Just wondering when she will protest wearing the bishop style dress above as well. The smocking plate is Creative Keepsakes Cynthia-one of my very favorites I have made for her. Thinking she might wear them longer if they are either shortened to be like a top or in the angel sleeves style- I am not ready to give up the smocked bishops yet. At least she we still have yoke and mary de styles that she does like to wear.
