here comes the bride...

Today my mom gave Alexis a "wedding dress" that she made for her. To say Alexis LOVES it would be an understatement. It has all the things a girl could want in her bridal fashion: lace, fur, silk, bead work, a veil and a bouquet. Plus it's machine washable! And I know Alexis would like me to add that the dress touches the ground and covers her shoes which are pink with flowers on them. Alexis also added her own touch with some lace gloves and a ring worn on her pointer finger.Now she's looking for someone to marry. If you have a son that is friends with her, you might want to wait a few months before we let them play again, or we might wind up as in-laws. Right now, though, she prefers to marry Tyler because he's her "best brother", and well, because he's here. I've been trying to talk her out of it, I told her she didn't want to marry a man that wears tights.Especially not one that wears two pairs of tights at once. That just screams HIGH MAINTENANCE.


*Disclaimer: Despite my track record I did not want to put those tights on him. It was all his idea and he screamed and cried until we put both pairs on him. I'm swear, I have witnesses. Even now he's pointing at the picture of himself saying "cute".

first we cried at the innocent beauty of the bride, then we cried even harder(with laughter)at your commentary, and finally grabbed the kleenex at tyler's new look.

Well, if all it takes is two pair of tights to be the perfect man...then we are in a lot of trouble. (Especially for all those younger brothers with older sisters.) :)
Crack me up Lis! That is sooooo funny!

P.S. -- I LOVE the dress! She looks absolutely stunning in it! :) (And, oh so ready to move on with her life...geesh...they sure do mature faster these days.) :)

Are you so impressed that I remembered your blog address? I LOVE the dress and can just imagine her excitement at wearing it! I am still laughing over Tyler, not to mention the fact that Alexis wants to marry him. Classic pictures!!

That picture of her with the ring makes you think of an old-fashioned movie picture and then you see her sweet face and I just had to laugh out loud. So cute.

HAHAHAHA. I love the dress. She has one nice gradnma. I better keep Jackson away for a while because I know he won't be able to resist marrying after seeing her in that. AND I love the picture of the tights, although I don't think it does it justice. He was soooo incredibly happy to be wearing them. The picture doesn't show how funny he thought he was, or the writing on his bum.
