This is little Mae wearing a dress with a history. This week the school district I used to work for, Gilbert Public Schools, celebrated its 100th birthday on the 100th day of school for the 2012-2013 school year. My granddaughters' school chose to mark that special occasion by wearing older style clothing.
Grandma's smocked dresses are a bit old fashioned so they pulled them all out to see which would fit the oldest sister. She had outgrown most but ended up wearing Sadie's 2011 birthday dress.
This little cutie was excited to find this one that fit her and wore it to grandma's house. She is my delightful, funny two-year-old sweetheart.
This is how it looked on her older sister, Ruby, who wasn't as enthused about this dress as Mabel. No, that curly little dark head is not Mabel's even though it certainly looks like Mabel's.
That is middle sister Sadie's curly head when she was small. Sometimes Sadie will look at a picture and ask why she isn't in the picture. Well she is, but she looks like Mae and back then there were only two of them, a blond and a curly brown head. I guess little dark hair girls come around again, too.
