The boys got really into egg dying this year. Poor Spence. You wouldn't know it to look at him, but he is a big time egg dyer. He comes up with all kinds of fancy ways to dye Easter eggs and the boys just wouldn't let him.
Anyone recognize these Easter clothes? If you have little boys, they were probably wearing the same thing. I searched the world over for Easter clothes for my crazies. Why is it so hard to find church clothes for little boys? I saw these at Children's Place a few weeks ago, but wasn't crazy about them so I kept on searching. When I finally caved because I couldn't find anything else, I went back to Children's Place on Friday to make a purchase. Big mistake. They were so picked over. There were all kinds of combinations to mix and match, but there was very little left in my kids sizes. The only choice of pants for Gray were white. Not only do they look like temple pants, but they don't hold up well to a blowout.
Believe it or not, this is what Reid looked like before church. Although he was dressed and hair was fixed 20 minutes before this picture, it only takes Reid 30 seconds to turn into this. He's all the cuter for it.
Parker came up with this pose on his own. Love it!
Gray was NOT happy before church. We had to retake his pictures afterwards.
Spencer is included in our family...and even got some new Easter duds...but refused to let me post his pictures on the World Wide Web.
I got a new Easter dress this year. I can't remember the last time I got an Easter dress...or any kind of dress. I love dresses but it's hard to find one that works. Darn modesty issues. I also purchased a very safe, very typical, skirt and top and another very regular, very over priced dress. I tried them on at home repeatedly before I decided to go for the fashion risk (at a great price might I add). I'm very happy I did. It was a cocktail dress turned jumper by the addition of a shirt. It worked. Who knew?
Spence got a little tired of taking my picture after about three unflattering pictures. I tried to take one of myself, but couldn't get my dress in the pic.
The kids enjoyed all the Easter festivities. We really missed having the Edwards over for Easter dinner...It had been a tradition for like five years running. It was kind of a lonely dinner all by ourselves. Spencer had no one to laugh at him when he complained about his rolls. And there was no one to finish off our twice baked potatoes and deviled eggs. And no one to pretend they like asparagus. We miss you guys! The good news was that I only had one primary kid there on Sunday. I had girded up my loins for some over stimulated, over sugared four year olds. But one wasn't so bad. I didn't come home too frantic to cook a delicious meal.
All in all, another holiday success.
