Spring Time

Mmm, I love Spring time -- when the sun comes out and revives everything it touches. It's the perfect time to celebrate Easter and remember Christ's Resurrection and our own opportunities for rebirth. It's just wonderful!
That said, let me tell you about our wonderful Easter weekend: Saturday morning the girls discovered gifts from a special visitor. Ivy got a baby swing and Millie got summer clothes - skirts mostly, as that's all she wears these days. Then at noon we went to Mark's grandma's house for lunch and an Easter egg hunt. Here's Millie (in one of her new skirts) impatiently waiting for the hunt to begin!
Millie also got an Easter dress Saturday morning and was excited to wear it to church on Sunday. So excited in fact, that she was wearing it when she came and woke me up at 6:45 the next morning. "I'm ready for church," she announced. Unfortunately church begins at 1 p.m. She was so distraught when I made her take it off to eat breakfast and take a bath! Poor girl. She did eventually get to wear it and here she is with Ivy who is wearing Millie's very first Easter dress. I hope she doesn't mind getting hand-me-downs, because I'm afraid that's just the life of daughter No. 2.
I wanted to get a family picture before church but we couldn't figure out how to set my camera to do a timed shot and then we ran out of time. So Mark took this one after church when the sun was bit too bright for pictures but perfect for spending time outside.
P.S. As you can see, my daffodils survived. Hooray!

Millie looks great in yellow. Love the flower too. I don't think Ivy will mind hand-me-downs. As one who received them from four older sisters, I can say that she'll probably love them. (We had issues getting pictures too, oh well.)

Your family is so cute. It sounds like you had a fun Easter. I don't think Ivy will mind hand-me-downs at all, especially when they are so cute.

Aw! They look so pretty! You do too, of course. I love easter. Pastels win my heart all over again every year! As a girl #2 myself I can attest to the fact that living in hand-me-downs is fun cuz you get to preview everything for a few years before you get it, but it might give her a shopping complex later in life. Hopefully you won't be paying for her clothes by then.

I sure love Spring time too! Millie is so cute! She is so cute and probably gets as excited as I do when I get something new! Your kids are adorable!

Love the idea of having the Easter bunny, or whatever on Saturday morning. My primary class was so hyper Sunday I couldn't find the door outta there fast enough!
