We did Easter supper and egg hunt on Saturday at the Orchards'. Here's all the cousins except baby Bo. It's the best we could do! :)
We try to keep Easter simple, because it's not about us or our kids! If they ask why they don't get a lot of presents we say it's because their birthdays are about them, but Easter is NOT. Same for Christmas. We are not opposed to celebrations that include goodies but we do not lavish STUFF on our kids. Easter is indeed a celebration! Grandma and Grandpa blessed all the kids with an Easter basket full of goodies.
I was going to sew Fallyn a dress for Easter, but while I had the kids in St Joe to visit their cousins, Fallyn and Vivian both found a dress at a consignment store for a really good deal. $6 plus not having to put in a couple hours of sewing = SOLD! :)
The cardigan was a garage sale find for $1. So are the shoes.
Fallyn wanted a braid with ribbon in it for Easter. I made her a big bow to top it off.
Since it was Duncan's first Easter, I did do the rare thing of just walking into Target and buying a shirt off the regular rack. Calvin got a matching shirt.
We hung out at our house all day Sunday after church and lunch. It was nice to just sit and enjoy the kids on a beautiful day, celebrating a beautiful Savior!!! We ended the day of fellowship by walking to Dairy Queen.
Here's Rick and his brothers.
Fallyn and her youngest cousin Emily.
