Fun with a Friend

Hello, lovely readers!  Yesterday our pen pal, Kit P, came over for a visit.
"Kit!"  Chrissa hugged our friend. "It's been forever!"
"I know, right?  I wish we could see each other more often." Kit replied.
"It's so good to see you!" I added.  "Do you want to come up to our temporary room?"
After we were seated on the bed, our friend pulled two wrapped gifts out of her bag. 
"Chrissa, this one's for you, and this other one is for you, Elizabeth." she said, handing one to each of us.
Inside mine was a pretty pink dress and a "E" pillow, while in my sister's was a "C" pillow and a blue dress.
"Thank you so much." I said, admiring the dress. "Now I feel bad, because we have nothing to give you."
"That's okay." she replied. "I'm just glad you like it."
"What do you want to do?" Chrissa asked.  "We don't really have a long time."
"I don't know." I said.
Suddenly my sister smiled and exclaimed, "I know!  Why don't we get out all our clothes and have a fashion show?"
"Oo, that sounds fun!  We could have a runway and everything!" Kit said excitedly.
Everyone helped bring out the shirts, skirts, shoes, pants and dresses.
 We didn't take as many pictures in the first round, but here they are!  By the way, do you like my new dress?
 In round two, Kit went first, ...
 ... then me, ...
 ... and Chrissa wrapped it up.  When she was walking down the runway, my sister did a very silly strut (or dance, it was hard to tell which), making Kit and I laugh.
"You're so funny, Chrissa"
"Why, thank you.  I try to be."
After she had finished, we all went "backstage", changed outfits, and redid our hair.
 Here's round three.

 After round three, we ended our show because our friend had to leave.
"Group hug!" Chrissa said. "I'm going to miss you, Kit."
"I will too.  Thank you for coming over!" 
"Thanks for letting me! I had such a great time with you two!" 
We walk Kit to the car where her mom was waiting, and sadly waved goodbye to our pen pal.  It was so fun seeing her again!
What do you like to do with your friends?


  1. How fun!!! Gorgeous photography!

  2. Play games. And dresses aren't really me but Marie loves it. By the way, I love the watermark. Have you had it long? Kit sounds nice.

  3. You must have had so much fun, and the dresses Kit gave you look beautiful! Going to the movies is my favorite thing to do with my friends!

  4. Fun! It sounds like you had a good time.

  5. Do you mind if I start using a watermark now too?

    1. Of course you may! It's not just us, many others use a watermark to protect their photos.


  6. You were nominated for the Daisy Chain award at A Little Of This, A Little Of That.

  7. Fabulous fashion show! Look like everyone had a great time too.
