Jewelry Parties & Prissy Girls

Last night my wonderful little sis had a jewelry party, and all the girly-girls she knew were invited. No boys allowed! Except for Noah, and he's not even one yet. And he ended up with a necklace on anyway! She had a fantastic turnout (and won a ton of free jewelry!)...

But the party just wasn't complete til the prissiest girly-girl of them all arrived:

Laura's Bestest Littlest Friend, Meg.
(Megan a few weeks ago in the wheat fields)

When Megan and her Mommy - The Dairy Wife (AKA my Aunt Tanya) - arrived, Laura Belle took one look at Meg's sweet little dress and her face just lit up!

Totally out of character for Laura, she stole away from her other guests and went to do a presto-chango... And she and Meg were ready for a photo session! (Note: I still haven't even downloaded the pics onto my computer yet, so I've stolen these prefectly edited pictures from my Aunt Tanya's blog - she's a lot quicker at editing than I am!)
You can see why Laura Belle wanted to get some pictures in - they have perfectly matching dresses!

They went out playing and posing around the house, just those two girls. Jax the puppy could not understand why they didn't want him around them, though! (Perhaps because they didn't want their beautiful dresses ruined by puppy-paw prints & scratches?)
They even played peek-around & danced around the columns...

Laura & Meg love each other almost as sisters.
Even though Laura will be getting married in less than a year, these two will always be best friends.


ps - Thanks, Meg, for watching Livie for us! You did a great job of making sure she didn't get into too much trouble! (We had Megan follow Liv around for us while we finalized our jewelry order. Which meant a small break for me!)

Much love to you all and God Bless!

I printed Meg a picture of her and Laura and she is STILL carrying it around. She sure loves her bestest friend!

Dani, Laura bought her dress last summer and I bought Meg's at Penny's a couple of weeks ago. I didn't know they were the same until Amanda's Mom saw Meg's and told me. How cool is that???!!!

Hi Amanda

A jewellery party sounds like so much fun. I imagine you would have bought some beautiful pieces. Laura and Meg's dresses are gorgeous and what stunning pictures of the matching girls. I particularly like the photos by the column - they look like so much fun. What a beautfiul relationship these two share.

I loved looking through the pics of Livia when she was 3 months old. The hands and feet photos are precious - I need to get some of those with Blake and I.

Livia has the most divine wardrobe - full of stunning dresses and matching headbands. Your country kid post is gorgeous. I ooohed and aaahed my way through these photos. I then saw your Wordless Wednesday post and was blown away with the amazing photos of Livia in the wheat fields. You capture the most adorable images of your stunning little girl. You are one very talented photographer Amanda and I can't get enough of your photos.

Lots of love and big hugs
Elise
