Yep! That's what my girls say! They wanted to wear a little something different this year for Christmas since we've worn all the smocked goodies, little jumpers, and Santa look-a-likes in the past. I agreed and I also must say that I couldn't help but click over to show them the fluffy little petticoat skirts that I found. I was imagining a cute red petticoat skirt with a cute white tee shirt, embroidered with a candy cane or something like that. However, once they saw the colorful selection, all they could think was pink, pink, pink! Emma chose a two-tone pink skirt and Claire chose black with pink ruffles. I suggested the red, of course, but decided that whatever color they chose would be alright and put in the order. We got the order yesterday(a quick 3 days later) and they were delighted! I must say that those pink skirts are just too cute.....and oh, the photo possibilities for Christmas and beyond!
After I had the rush of pink-holiday-visions once they were parading around in their twirly skirts, I couldn't help but browse through my Flickr contacts' holiday photos in search of pink. I found quite a selection. I see now that a little pink for the holidays may be just what this traditional red-and-green girl needs.
What about you? Are you the traditional-Christmas-color type or do you like to branch out in themes and pastel colors? My little ones may be dressed in pink this year, but I don't think I can part with my traditional and homemade Christmas decorations.
Now the big question.....are you ready for the Christmas season? Have you begun your shopping and/or crafting? To be honest, I'm almost finished with my shopping. (Did you hear my happy squeal?!) Our list was deliberately made shorter this year (like many people) and things seem just a little easier to manage. I still have some crafty things that I'd like to do for a few on my list and since they're not big projects, I'll fit them in during the next few weeks. I just hope my sewing machine remembers who I am! :P
Thanks for the early holiday chit-chat, friends!
