6 months on and I have succumbed to one t shirt with a slogan! Ds has a tshirt that says "Global Warming Killed Frosty!". His hais is still long, but is not growing very quickly.
Dd still has her own style and it is VERY modest. We went shopping at some outlets recently and she tried on 2 little sundresses, both were cute. She wears them both as tops over 3/4 denims!
Every day we write a memory on the heart of our family. What memories did you write today?

Some of those little dress over longer pants lok nice Meg, I wish I was younger and that the style suited me, of course there are those that don't worry whether the style suits them or not LOL
I like that global warning saying not heard it before.

Yes ds1 hair is still long, his last hair cut was 1st week last nov, work told him to put it in apony tail and I think that looks worse LOL

My 16 year old received a shirt for christmas that was too small to go over his head. We took it back to Old Navy and exchanged it. Since there was a sale going on he picked up 2 Camaflouge long sleeved shirts. He added the extra cost out of his christmas money. And since the snow has been so deep and it's been really cold I was glad he picked long sleeves. And the camo is not really a new style as he's always liked the camo prints even in grade school.

Wow it's been so long since I've posted on this thread, from 2008 when my #1 son (now 25) had long hair he now keeps it short back and sides and hates length! I guess he got the long hair bit out of his system as did my youngest (now 20) who also went through a long hair stage and is now a clean short back and sides guy as well.

Their style of clothing has never been an issue though 1 likes to be a bit dressier than the other. They are both 6ft skinny dudes with 30inch waists in pants and have trouble finding smaller clothes as everything is geared for the larger guy.

Boy this thread is really old. My 16 year old turned 24 today and chooses what ever he wants to wear. The same goes for his 28 year old sister and they both still live at home and jobless.
