Priceless smiles

Lilly wore her new Christmas dress to church today. The arm length was enormous on her, but since it had elastic at the wrists, it was fine - it just looked like giant puffed sleeves. Dressing Lilly is like dressing a baby doll.

Lilly also had on her red Mary Janes which were knitted by our friend K. Great news about K. and her husband - they just received a newborn to adopt a few weeks ago. K's Etsy store sells knitted Mary Janes, among other items. All profits go to support orphans and adoptions. Please check out:

Lilly was so happy and smiled so much in church today that it made me want to burst into [happy] tears. (And wish I had had my camera with me!)

"May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace." - Numbers 6:25-26 (New Living Translation)


  1. love the dress with those shoes:)

  2. Before you know it Lilly is dancing on those red shoes. Wouldn't that be a beautiful sight!!:-)

  3. The sleeves DO look poofy on that dress
    and wish that you had a clip that matched that dress.........
