the best day

to me, Easter is the biggest deal. just the biggest and the best day. Easter and all it holds in meaning for me makes it a most beautiful and glorious holiday. 
add to it all the blissful blue skies and perfect weather that we usually see during springtime in atlanta, the family gatherings, the freshly pressed dresses, shiny new shoes, sweet pastels, and um amazing treats (peeps! cadbury mini eggs!)... and Easter is a favorite for sure.
i've never made the kids' Easter outfits before but once i saw this amazing pattern, it had Easter dresses written all over it for me, so i took the plunge and decided to sew their outfits this year. miss R has to have pink so i showed her this fabric and she loved it...miss m doesn't have much of a preference so she got the blue and mr. b., ... well, i know this is my only chance to put the boy in what i think is adorable baby boy duds...
the husband does not agree and little b almost went to church naked because daddy hated his outfit and was horrified by what i dressed him in! next year, maybe i'll find a good pattern for little b and include him in the Easter sewing... daddy approves of the mama-made overalls, so as soon as church was over and the egg hunt was finished, he promptly changed his little boy into his Easter basket gift! it took some convincing to get the girls to change out of their birdie dresses and into their Easter basket goodies, but they humored me even though there isn't more than a hint of pink in their outfits... major blunder there...should have known yellow would be a battle... i couldn't get miss R to stay in her new outfit, so she found a properly pink alternative for the park! at least i got a few pics first! :)
 this is what i usually get at picture time..."she pinched me!" "she's picking her nose!" ... ...
but sometimes the smiles come out
 and play!
 i hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!
