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!
