easter at our house


So Easter happend.  That was good.


We did the whole shebang. Big dinner, egg hunt etc. etc. etc.. The food was to die.  Ate too much.

We have several days throughout the year that we give our kids carte blanche regarding candy. Easter is one of them.  They love it. It makes for a very exciting day usually ending with crying hateful children.  This is parenthood as we know it.




I tried to get a photo of The Boy before he shed his prescribed Easter outfit, but the kid was on a veritable hummingbird sugar high.  All photos were a blur.

Birdie and Frankie had special Easter outfits made for them by my good friend Jen Vu.  Jen and I have the exact same taste in almost everything.  So when she sews my children something I know it will be something that I would have dreamed up in my own  head.  Love having a friend like that.



She embroidered their initials on them.  You know how I love monograms.  They will go in their keepsake boxes when they outgrow them.

This is Jen. She's a keeper.



Hope your Easter was nice.  

I'm off to Houston today to start a new project. I'm pretty excited about this one.  

Details are coming.

beautiful family. I love the Easter outfits and miss the days when my kids were little enough I could dress them in whatever I wanted to. They outgrow that stage way too soon.

Beautiful children, outfits, and dessert! (I too made a cake for Easter, and I used the link you gave a few days ago and made the sweet Happy Easter banner! Thank you!)

The clothes were so cute! It looks like you all had an awesome day!!
I'm a struggling college student blogging about living on an EXTREMELY tight budget, but maybe someday I will have a family of my own. Great pics!
