For the past five years I have kept the outfit that Jazzie was wearing on the day we got her, in a Ziplock bag in her closet. The same goes for Tahlia's outfit; it has been sitting in her closet for the past three years. I finally figured out something better to do with them. I put them in shadow boxes and hung them on the wall in our play room.
Jazzie came to us in pajama's and a quilted snow suit (split pants in both), despite the 90 degree weather:

And here is her outfit today:
Tahlia on the other hand came to us wearing a very Western outfit: a little sun dress made by Carters:

Every time the girls go down to their playroom, they can see their outfits and I love that I am able to look at them every day. They obviously bring back a lot of wonderful memories.
(For those of you interested: I got the shadow boxes at Hobby Lobby (they were 50% off this week), but I'm sure Michael's has them as well).
