The Myrissa & Mia Skirts

In my neighborhood, there are two sweet sisters, Myrissa and Mia, and they live right down the street. They celebrated their birthdays together this past Saturday and invited our family to their little birthday party. Before this, they discovered that I like to make things, and so I knew they would like it if I made them some new skirts. I absolutely adore the kids that live in my neighborhood. I really do. Now, of course, all the other little girls in the neighborhood want a skirt, so we will see what I can come up with!

These two showed up to my doorstep this morning proudly beaming with their new skirts on and so I grabbed my camera and tried to take some cute pictures! I seriously love these girls and their cute skirts!  And they loved modeling... now I see why people with girls have such great blog photos. Girls are EASY when it comes to smiling for a camera and loving being in the spotlight!
 Who says I can't sew for girls!? You can too, maybe you just need to sew for the girls next door!
 They'd love it! 
 Believe it or not... this is Cai giving a "kiss". One of my favorite things about the kids where I live is that all of them get along no matter what age. It's like there is no gap at all from 20 months to 11 years old. No lie. It's awesome!

 I told you they were silly!
 And sassy... I mean, check out these high heels...
 But mostly, just sweet!
 Mia loves pushing Cai in the baby stroller.
 And this is what you see them doing most of the time! Biking up and down the street! So, go slow on our road people!!! What's the speeding deal!?!
I'll share a little more in detail about each skirt in the next couple days, but for now, I hope you enjoyed their little photo shoot! I sure did! Plus, it was a great way for me to prepare for Skirting the Issue! I'm so excited about that event! It could be the whole, we are adopting and will be partial foster parents when we first get our little DSS baby, but I love the cause and a real reason to make some precious foster girl's some skirts! If you haven't heard of it, be sure to check it out!
