July 4th Pt 2 Outfitting the Crew
Every year I get the kids coordinating and festive outfits so that the pictures I take will look nice. I am not sure why I put this kind of pressure on myself year after year but I think it just comes with the job. This year it just wasn't working out. The store didn't have the sizes I needed, no time to order online, Lyvie wanted a Hello Kitty shirt and I wanted to make the twins dresses with my new sewing machine. So, as we do often in a large family, we improvised! Tyler picked out his shirt, Wesley could care less, Lyvie wore her Hello Kitty shirt and the twins looked very patriotic in their new dresses that I made (and finished at lunch time on the 4th)- tada! Then on the morning of the 4th I stumbled across a website where the girl had her hair done in the shape of a star! Her hair! In a STAR people! We had to try it! I think I copied the star hair do for Lyv quite nicely if I do say so myself! Of course the twins needed some fancy hair so we did a lovely fireworks explosion thing for them too! So, here are some pictures of my crew, not matching, but looking mighty fine!
