Easter

Celebrations like Easter get better every single year. Children bring so much joy to our lives! These three girls especially.

So, I had been searching for MONTHS for the perfect Easter dresses for the girls. I'm getting to a tough spot though with keeping them coordinated though. Hailey's entering the big girl section at the stores, and Paige and Cait are still trailing behind in the toddler section. I don't need them to all match...but I LOVE coordinating. I wanted something classy, modern and timeless. I'm really loving lace this year...and although I found the perfect cream coloured lace dress for them, at $40 each I just couldn't do it. If I only had one girl I'd break the bank no problem. But I just couldn't justify the $120 in dresses. Which I know is probably not a lot in the grand scheme of things. But I also knew both Hailey and Paige needed completely new spring/summer clothing this year...plus shoes. And when it comes to girls and shoes, they need a lot. In fact I've decided that in the spring and summer they need: a pair of flip flops, a pair of running shoes, a pair of water shoes, a pair of durable water shoes they can actually wear around and look cute wearing, a pair of Sunday sandals, some rain boots, and one pair of cute casual shoes they can wear to nice events without overdressing. Hahahaa....I must be a girl. Because although I know this is probably excessive, I also feel like it's necessary.


Anyway, I stumbled upon these little gems at Winners in town just a few weeks before Easter. I found a matching little dress for Cait and all the World's problems had been solved. Right? Dresses, and shoes? Definitely First World Problems!

I had a few pieces in my closet that were perfect as well. And because Ben hates matching I didn't tell him what we were wearing and let him accidentally choose the right thing. Which he did. I grabbed that coordinating belt as I ran out the door so he didn't go change his tie! Because he would.

Anyway, that's the story of our Easter outfits. Aren't you glad I shared?


But in all seriousness. Easter was great. I recently got a new calling at church and I now teach Paige's little Primary class. So we had a great Easter lesson, then gobbled up a bunch of Chocolate Easter eggs. We came home and napped. That afternoon we got together with cousins, ate delicious food and then the kids were so lucky because the Easter bunny came and we all had a big egg hunt!! Fun times for all! 




p.s. I didn't take either picture...so I won't take credit for the fact that neither is fully in focus. Ben wins that award for the pictures of the three girls. And I blame the other one on my camera remote, which I have yet to fully figure out.
