Clothes, clothes, clothes!

Here's a funny picture of Libby with some of Matt's old goggles that Matt's parents found at their house. :)
Here is a picture of an outfit Libby will never get to wear (other than today). After going to the consignment blowout event Duck-Duck-Goose, I pulled out all Libby's next size clothes to evaluate her wardrobe. I found this in a lost bag of 12-18 months clothes (it's a 6 month outfit). Not her usual style, but cute as can be! :)
If her face looks mischievous in the picture below, it's because she is. She's been looking all over the house today for things to get into! I guess she figures since it's a mess anyways it won't make a difference if she trashes it even more. :)

As I mentioned above, this past weekend was the semi-annual Duck-Duck-Goose consignment sale. After going 3 times (including the first day and half-price day!) and with the help of my Mom and Matt's Mom, Libby now has her summer-fall wardrobe. The only problem with these sales is that it's always a temptation to buy way too many cute cheap clothes. We'll see if that happened this time when she starts wearing 18-month clothes. I have yet to find someone with a girl a size or two bigger than Libby to get hand-me-downs from, so this consignment was great!

Here it is:
Libby's summer-fall wardrobe :)
Jackets, pants, dresses and the cutest cowgirl boots!
Swim gear
Shoes galore
Shorts, skirts, and many, many shirts and onsies.
Hooray for Consignment sales!!
Now I have to go clean up all the messes she made while I was working on this post before she wakes up from the nap I just layed her down for.
P.S. In case you were wondering why there are so few posts lately, this is it. There is not much time during her naps to accomplish things and the house suffers much if she has free reign while I post. :) Nevertheless, I can't complain... I love being a Mom and a homemaker! It's the best job ever! And Libby is really a great girl and still takes 2 good naps a day, yet doesn't have a breakdown when she misses one!
Also, she now has two of her top molars coming in! Teething hasn't been bad with her at all. She now has a total of 8 teeth (4 on top, 4 on bottom) plus the two more on their way in and swollen gums on the bottom.

Holy cow, you got so much stuff! How much did you end up spending over 3 times?? I love the 1/2 price days!!! I stocked up on Gavin for the summer too!

I think out of pocket, after my Mom's contribution I spent $75. $25 over my original target, but I think it was worth it. Matt's Mom also bought some of the stuff.

Shannon, what size is Libby in? 12-18 months? Kelsie & Emerson are right behind each other in sizes, but sometimes the seasons are off & I end up taking huge bags to goodwill. I'd be more than happy to check with you first if you need stuff! right now it seems like we have to get new clothes every few months, Kelsie is in 3t & some 4t, and Emerson is 24 months-2t. We are actually doing a clean out in about 2 weeks, so I will check in with you when I find out what can't fit anymore!
