Fun with Grandma and the Gibbs!

This last weekend, my mom came to visit! Since she was planning to be in town, my sister decided to come too. We had a lot of fun! I had things planned, and we all know how that can go. Instead, my mom brought a bunch of old prom dresses that my sister and I had worn in high school. So we had a giant dress-up party!

Lylli in my wedding dress.

Seryn in one of my prom dresses!
Surprisingly, Michelle and I fit into some of our old dresses. Others, we didn't! (At least not if you count having to be zipped up, fitting.)

Natalie, Lylli, Me, Seryn, and Michelle. (Lylli's wearing my baptism dress.)
I even fit into my wedding dress!

I realize I'm wearing a pained expression, but it was tight!! And I think that I should get points for even being able to zip it up! Especially since I'm 30 lbs. heavier than I was when I got married nearly 10 years ago!

And Saturday night, all the girls wore Kleenex in their hair and had curly hair Sunday for church!
This is the second year my mom has been here for her birthday! The kids had a great time throwing her a party. Layla was upset that we forgot the balloons, but the cake and ice cream were good! What a fun weekend!
This is the girls making cards for Grandma before she came! I just had to stick it in here because they're so cute!

How fun! I can't believe you fit in your dress. . I definitely think it counts if you get it zipped! I wanted to see a pic of all the girls hair on Sunday. . I have never heard of the Kleenex trick. You will have to tell me sometime!

So fun! I'm impressed with Seryn's bangs...wish my kids would cut their hair that straight. Congrats on your book, that's awesome!

Wow...I'm impressed that you can both fit into your old dresses! I can barely fit into my wedding tux still, and I wore it only a few months ago!
