Easter fun (and NEW DRESSES!)

We had a wonderful Easter Sunday! Kiah and Malea woke up and found most of the easter eggs that the Easter bunny hid, before the rest of the family was even awake. Good thing the baskets were hidden so well, or they would have found all of those too! Glad they waited so we could at least get a few random pics.
Talee loved the candy (and I am just LOVING her little hair that is starting to curl out)!
The Easter Bunny left some eggs that were full of some of the true symbols of Easter (red cloth, nails, soap, am empty egg, etc.) We had a beautiful devotional after the baskets were found and talked about the true significance of the day. How grateful we are that Jesus is truly RISEN!
The picture above is the best one of the entire clan. We were running on our way out the door to church so we didn't wait for Eva to finish eating her chocolate - as you can see below!
I really LOVED making their dresses this year. I modified a pattern that I found here for those interested!

They are so great. It is when I see that that I think...if I could sew...I could make my girls match all of the time. Or if I could get them all cute matching things at the store.

So creative! Bet we could look at the insides and they'd be just as pretty. Congrats on a good job well done (with the dresses, hair, flowers, husband, etc., etc.) You deserve the happiest Mother's Day of all!!! {:)
