Andi's Christmas gift from her Dad.

Andi wasn't planning on finding her wedding dress just yet- but when she went in to Allyses to purchase a gift for Amanda the new bridal catalogs were out at the counter. It was fun for Andi to be told she was the first customer to view the new catalog release.
She took a few minutes to browse the pages as she walked through the mall to meet me at Nordstrom. One dress caught her attention and she was baffled at the price. Surely it was a typo error. When she met up with me she showed me the picture of the dress and also showed me the price voicing her doubt that that could not possibly be the actual price. I adviced her to call the store when she got home and ask them.
Our excitement grew as Andi verified that was indeed the price and they had a size 6 and a 2 for her to try on. I was able to leave work early and the three of us girls went dress shopping. (By then Amanda was out of school).
Short story shorter- Amanda was dissapointed that the dress she had put on hold the previous night was back on the sale rack. Little did she know that in fact it was not the same items she had put on hold because Andi had already purchased them and hidden them at home.
Andi found her perfect wedding dress (size 00). Bruce picked it up for her after he got home from work. He got a bit teary eyed carrying her daughters wedding dress through the mall back to the car. He is so sweet and very tender hearted.
After Christmas we will have a 'sister' party where the girls and I help Andi pick out the accessories such as tiara and veil. It will be a fun day spent with Katy, Liz, Amryn, Amanda, and Andi. So looking forward to it! Hope all the girls will be there.
P.S.- Amber will be in Japan and Rachel will be in Arizona.
