Sentimental Sunday

I was reading one of my new favorite blogs - The Pennington Point and saw that Lisa had linked to Cha Cha for a Sentimental Sunday.

I don't often do these types of things but I knew just what I would show.  It has been sitting in my closet for years now.

This dress is one that I bought when my first daughter was born.  Almost 19 years ago.  She wore it the very first Sunday that she went to church.  Every daughter after that also wore it for their first Sunday at church.  It has now been 8 years since a wee girl has worn this sweet (but dated) dress.  Maybe one day, a granddaughter may wear it on her first Sunday in church.
I have a white heirloom dress for the girls too, that they all wore, but this one is sentimental because of all of them wearing it on their first Sunday in church.

If you have a sentimental thing to share link up with Cha Cha, Lisa and now me, over at Cha Cha's blog!  Click on the link above to join in!


  1. That is so sweet. I have a sleeper that all of my kids wore, and a couple of their outfits, but the fact that each of your girls wore it the first time they attended church makes it even more special.

  2. I love this dress, I have the dress that my dad and all his brothers and sisters can home from the hospital in my sister and I came home in it and both of my daughters came home in it. It is in a shadow box hanging on the wall. I love your heart for wanting to keep this and keep it going. Those first trips to church are precious and a memory to last a life time for us momma's

    Thank you for linking up,
    Cha Cha

  3. Oh I am so glad you linked up to this fun party! I loves seeing what other people are sentimental about. If you hadn't done it, we would never have known this sweet thing about you. You need to frame that little dress. And OH! If you have pictures of your girls in the dress, hang them in with the dress. OK, I'm getting excited! LOL! Lisa~
