Green ~ A Paper Mama Photo Challenge

The Paper Mama

~ Green ~

This is one of the pictures I took on Saint Patrick's Day! I wore the leprechaun costume when I was a baby (for Halloween); my mom made it! My grandma (dad's mom) made the shamrock dresses ~ you can't really tell from the picture, but the green spots on the dresses are shamrocks. :) 
These two dresses have been sent all over the country to our relatives on my dad's side. So many cousins have worn them! My aunt unexpectedly sent them to me in 2009! I was so excited to be "let in" on such a special family tradition. A cousin of mine is expecting her first baby later this year so I'm hoping it's a girl so I can send one out East to her so she can enjoy the family dress, too!

  1. Oh! Look at those curly red headed little girls! That is exactly what I wanted in a little girl... if I had had one! So sweet :)

  2. Thanks Katie! I love the red hair too! :)
