Boys in Suits

I have always loved dressing my boys in suits for church. They are just adorable mini-missionaries when they are all dressed up.
This is Jason in one of his suits as a little boy. Isn't he the cutest little boy ever?
Then there is Brady with his very long eye lashes and dressed up in his suit, complete with bow tie. I just love how fun it was to dress these little boys up.

Then they become teenagers and it is very difficult to keep them dressed up in a suit, due to the crazy growth spurt they have.
They just end up in a white shirt, pants and a tie. Here is Brady outside the New Twin Falls Temple. Still very handsome, but I love the look of a boy in a suit.

We have been preparing for AFY, Adventure for Youth, LDS Youth Conference. He will be going June 29th through July 3rd at BYU Idaho.

One of the requirements is a sport coat. Brady will only wear black church clothes, no stripe, not navy - just black. I don't know why... it is just what he likes.

It was my time again to put my little (big) boy into a suit. We headed over to the mall and found an awesome deal at JC Penney.
Now my son is just dashing in a brand new suit! Aaaaaahh I just love to dress up a boy - since I never had a daughter to play dress up with *wink*.

Don't you think the girls at Youth Conference will think he is sooooo cute? He'll have a great time.... I am really excited for him!
My little boy is growing up. We purchased this suit in the men's department, no more little boy or even a teenager... But a little man. (He is taller then me... but always my little boy.)

The pants have a cuff to take out when he grows. I am sure we will get good use out of this suit.

I did get a great deal! Original prices were $328, but I walked out paying (with tax) only $164.27. When the total displayed on the register... I had to take a double take... I was sure I was over $200... What a great savings of $173 -- woo hoo.. I always love a deal.

The break down:
Suit Coat, regular price $180, with discount $82.50.
Pants, regular price $80, with discount $36.47
New white shirt, regular price $38, with discount $18.23
New silk red tie, regular price $30, with discount $18.22

It was my lucky day with all the great discounts they were offering. I love a great deal!

Very handsome boys! I haven't bought a suit yet for Colt because they also grow to fast when they are babies- but you've got me thinking I'm gonna have to do it! :)

I love my little guy in a suit too!
We have had him in one the past 2 years and each sunday I PRAISE him.. He looks so handsome and like a little missionary also..

Good job being thrifty! Blessings always surround us.. Don't they!
