This year I did not buy Easter dresses for the girls. Instead, I rummaged through their summer clothes to see if I could find some summery dresses that they had not yet worn to church. I found this dress for Kara that I had purchased for $2 at JC Penny's in the fall of 2005.
Yesterday, the day after Easter we went shopping in Salina. The first time I've been to Wal-Mart in two months. Unfortunately it showed by the amount of items I purchased. Anyways, They had all of their Easter baskets on sale for 50% off. I was able to find two princess Easter baskets for $7. The baskets came complete with costume, tiera, scepter, shoes, necklace, earings, ring, and of course the candy. The girls loved being able to play with them this morning.
Lydia's dress is my favorite dress that either of the girls have owned so far. I had Kara wearing this dress all of the time, and since it looks so great on Lydia she will probably have the same fate. It reminds me of Kim Anderson photos.
My three adorable children on Easter morning. Isn't that little boy handsome in is vest and tie! I praise the Lord for how He has blessed us and provided more than we need.
The week before Easter, I found a great muffin pan at the dollar store that made muffins in the shape of bunnies and eggs. I made some small cakes and frosted. Then, we decorated our eggs (well, Lydia decorated a bunny)
You can see that Kara was intent on decorating her egg. Although, I wonder what happened to all of the chocolate chips.
You can see Daddy is proud of his egg. Andy watched intently as daddy decorated his egg. He has become very eager to try all of the foods that we have on our plate. But for now, he must remain content with cereal.
