Last night we had a fun Night!!! Heidi gave our lesson which is found in the June friend 2008. So Chris wanted me to pull out my white bag, and unzip it and pull out my WEDDING DRESS!! I decided to let the girls each try it on and let them have fun wearing it.

So here's Heidi: I tried to take a few different shots. Just for fun, and I'm surprised that they all said, they want to get married in my dress!!! Of course, I just had them "step into" the dress so you can see the clothes underneath. But hey, what a great way to get them excited about being married in the temple.

Katherine having FUN!! She thought it was great that I let her play dress up with my DRESS!!

Kaylee was so excited that she couldn't stand still at first.

It was so funny to watch her squirm as she put on such a

beautiful dress, of course, I am biased.

And here come the bragging rights!!!
So after the girls tried on the dress they asked if I would put it on. Of course, I wore this ten years ago, and I've since had 5 kids, so I told them I'd try and see if it would still fit. And Lo and behold ........

IT DOES !!!!

I started my family off wearing this dress and ten years later .....

look what beautiful kids I have.

The girls wanted to hold the train, so I let them do it.

Of course, I look like I've had a long day and wasn't prepared for real pictures, but hey we had a fun family home evening anyway. I do have to add, what a trip down memory lane.


  1. Way to go Wendy! That's super awesome that you fit into your wedding dress. What a fun FHE lesson. :)

  2. Nice post, Wendy. That's awesome that you fit in your wedding dress after FIVE kids!

  3. This is a night I'm sure your girls will remember. You know how some things just stick with you? I KNOW this one will with them. And I think they'll also be impressed that you could still wear your dress!! You have *definately* earned bragging rights!

  4. How cute it is to see your girls in your wedding dress! I love the picture of you with all your kids...those are rare pictures. I'm proud of you that it fits!
