Getting Ready For Kellie's Big Day...

Kellie is celebrating her First Communion this spring (May) and we have been busy getting ready for that. Since it's been the focus of our week this week I decided to pull out Molly's First Communion dress so that I can have it cleaned and freshened...
I absolutely love love love this dress. It is so pretty and feminine. The neck has tiny organza flowers with a pearl in the center of each...
and the waist has a wide band with the same flowers/pearls...
the entire dress is satin with a layer of white organza over it and the skirt has an extra layer of organza. The back has tiny pearl buttons to the waist and the sash is lined on each edge with pearls...
oh I just love it!
and her veil has a band of satin flowers with pearl beads...
and both sides of the veil are edged with satin...
hhhhhh, LOVE IT!!! Here is a photo of Molly in it on her big day (she's on the right)...
the camera we had was a piece of junk so we all look like we were in the sun too long (I hate that!)...
good grief the red in these photos! LOL.
I will never get rid of this dress!

Little girls - one of life's greatest pleasures!!! Communion is such a special time - treasure those memories. And that dress -- keep THAT away from Howard!

Oh how well I rememebr my first communion dress.
Nowadays in our part of the world they don't dress up any more so that the day isn't remembered as a dressing up day, which I think is a shame.
Mind you, there are stories of children arriving by helicopter, and one in a glass coach drawn by miniature ponies....and then never seen at church again!(Hey..you could dress Howard up and hire him out...)

The flowers on that dress are gorgeous! So lovely.
