The Family Robe

Appearing for the 5th time tonight!

We bought this robe for David - back in the day. I think it cost around $30. Every child of ours that has graduated from MPHS has worn this baby. We totally lucked out the year Stephanie graduated - she was assigned to wear red that year (the school colors are red and white). Usually most of the girls wear the white robe (which can be incredibly tacky - depending on what they wear under it). Lucky us. We didn't have to fork out another $30 bucks for another robe.

I had to have Steve haul out the sewing machine this morning - the bottom 4 or 5 inches of the zipper had come unsewn. Easy fix.

I need to make sure I have extra batteries for the camera tonight. One more set of pictures of the family robe. Yea, Alex!

Excellent investment! By the time that Danny gets to wear them they may look like Ron Weasley's robes. :)

At least there's no lace to rip off the hem.

You're lucky, my kids school requires a new robe each year, I guess the variations of maroon are too vast. We have a collection.

I remember that Lynn's used to hang in our closet along with the regular one. You sure didn't want to reach for the wrong one...
