the traveling shirt

Hi everyone!
Isn't today such a great day!
I'm in a good mood right now . . . if you couldn't tell.

Today I am wearing the traveling shirt!; a little but like these traveling pants, but not really, but sort of. I call it the pin wheel shirt because, well, that's kind of what it looks like. I believe I'm the 5th in my family to get it.

Today I'm layering the pin wheel shirt with a cute cardigan and I think my over all outfit turned out all right. Sorry there are no full body pictures of me. Today I am model and photographer.

Oh, and don't forget to notice the freckles on my nose.
I am so proud of them!
I adore freckles!
Normally my freckles only come out in the summer when I swim a lot but this time they're lasting all year round! I don't understand why so many people protest against freckles.
Boo to clear skin.
Freckles add character!

You know, I really aught to start featuring Elliot in WYWW more often but the truth is, a lot of his clothes are second hand from his cousin so I don't need to buy a lot of clothes for him. I guess that can be a goal of mine - to dress him better so I can share his handsome outfits. That's the great thing about this decade - there are lots of nice clothes for girls and for boys.

For now, here's Avery.

What is with kids and boots? Once they get their first pair you can never get them to take them off . . . um, well . . except when you don't want them to like at the park, or right before you need to take them somewhere.

the whole family joins in

I'm really excited to share with you for the first time the whole Freeman family for What are You Wearing Wednesday. Most of the time Avery and I are the only ones featured but I thought it'd be fun to do all of us.

As you can see, we had a lot of fun taking these pictures. It was very diverting watching everyone pose for the camera. Elliot is all boy, Andrew relishes in being the center of attention, Avery is fond of feeling pretty, and I'd rather be behind the camera.
Andrew is a little picky about how his shoes fit.
We looked for ones like these all over the place.
Who knew we'd find the most comfy ones at Big 5?

I thought my hair was a disappointment when I left the house
but looking back it turned out alright. It's kind of hard to tell but I have two braids going across the front and then I twisted the sides back into a pony tail.

He is seriously such a funny kid.

Another first

The charm about having a girl is getting to do her hair in different styles. As her hair has been growing I've been able to do more and more with it.

At first it was just a headband.
Then it was the clip.
Next piggy-tails.
Then came the small side front ponytail.
Now I can do a full on ponytail to her hair!

Not bad!
She did not enjoy the hair-do process because of all the tugging!
Admittedly only half of her ponytail was still up by the end of the day.
Perhaps next time her hair will stay in longer.

Now that her hair is long enough for a pony tail I just have to wait to be able to braid and curl it!
