Despite my procrastination, I did get my girls' clothes done.
The real trick is always getting pictures of the kids in their clothes.
Wait, let me rephrase that.
The real trick is always getting GOOD pictures of the kids in their clothes.
Once everyone is dressed and ready for church we have the traditional quest for a group picture.
Most of them turn out like this:
Or my favorite, attempting to solve Charlotte's spit bubble fascination/runny nose combo:
But we do get a few pretty close shots:
Taylor is finally getting over his issues with cameras and can actually keep his eyes open now. Granted he looks like he's in pain, but it's better than the squinting and cries of "it's too bright!" despite the fact that we are indoors and seconds earlier he was absolutely fine.
Malia on the other had is in a solemn pose phase. In addition to channeling her inner 40 year old. Again. Or more appropriately, still.
She begged me to borrow some pearls "because it's Easter and Easter is a special day and they are dressy and nice!", so I relented and helped her out with the pearls. It resulted in a very June Cleaver look. Which left me wondering why I didn't make myself an identical dress..... Maybe in a different pattern.
Hey, June is highly underrated.
My siblings felt I was going for the June homage in my outfit too. I'm very much liking polkadots still.
(also, note the turquoise and red together! ha!)
And of course there is my happy Sam:
We did of course to the basket (well, bucket) thing too.
Aaron looked pained trying to figure out who belonged to what because I procrastinated too much to get names on the buckets. But if I do that next week I'm not late for this year, just super early for next year.
You know, like the fact that we didn't dye any of those eggs I boiled....I didn't drop the ball, just allowing the joy of Easter to continue for a few more days. Right?
Charlotte shared her OCD tendencies by creating a color coded mosaic of jelly beans.
Sam got some adorable new shoes.
(ok, the shoes were for me. he didn't care.)
Lincoln is working on being a poser.
After a fabulous afternoon at church, we spent the evening at my parents' house with my family. My Dad did cute baskets for all the kids, Charlotte is still toting hers around while with a sing-song voice saying "Pomps Ba-ket! Pomps E-ter Ba-ket!"
The only pictures I ended up with last night were of Sam and my cutie patootie nephew Cole.
And since Cole is constantly on the run, most of the pictures of him ended up like this:
I did get some FABULOUS video of my older brother and my sister playing Just Dance. But I promised her I wouldn't put that on the blog. I'll have to find some other way to share the love.
Hope your Easter was beautiful and wonderful!
