Ellie’s Christmas Dress

By Maryellen

I am so lucky!  This year Jen’s Mother-in-Law gave me a new dress to wear to church on Christmas Eve.  We have a special connection because she also grew up with many siblings and understands what life is like when you get hand-me-downs and have to take care of annoying younger siblings.

to my red patent leather shoes.  I do have to be careful not to put my thumbs through the sweater when I put in on.  This might be a sweater for older girls.

We have many headbands for dolls, but this one actually fits my head!  It has a piece of elastic connecting the ends of the ribbon so I can put it on without messing up my hair.

This dress is almost exactly the same color as the paint I used to make our front door “the one and only” red door on the block!

Julie and I are ready to leave for church.  I hope your Christmas was merry!

    It appears that I did not reply to this post although I am so sure that I did. I really enjoyed the article and the reference to my part in getting Maryellen the beautiful holiday dress.
