Alethea's Christmas dress is second hand. There is no need to buy a brand new dress from the store every Christmas. There are always plenty of friends, and relatives who have old dresses from when their kids were little that they would happily give away. My daughter also found lots of great formal used clothing for very inexpensive prices on her local "Mom's Group" page.
And finally, my little man Atticus, who is two. My, has his personality come out! He used to be so shy and it would take 24-48 hours for him to warm up to us every time we saw each other again. But now he's very out-going, talks a mile a minute, and we don't need to get re-acquainted every new visit anymore. He's as handsome as ever in his dark trousers and red plaid shirt.
The boys outfits came right out of their closet. Again, you don't need to buy special Christmas clothes. Just find something they already own in a Christmas color and build an outfit around that. Every year, I decorate the tree a different color. For our annual Christmas photos, I tell my daughter what the color of the tree is and we put together a color theme to match the tree. I love how cheerful the red and white looks and the black is the perfect accent color.
And now, lets see what the rest of the ladies in my group are wearing this Christmas and be sure to link up your outfits with us below too!
