Easter Best

This Easter Sunday was a little different from any other I can remember. I didn't even go to church. Being as Andrew wasn't quite 2 weeks old, I was worried to take him. (Sarah did go with Dennis though).

My mom sent these super cute dresses for the girls to wear... I remember that growing up my sister and I would always a beautiful new dress for Easter. My brothers would all get new dress slacks and a white shirt, which was nice because their old pants would be floods by then! We would take a family shopping day and go to the mall to find everyone their new duds. Then, on Easter Sunday we would go to the backyard, set up the tripod, and take a quick family picture. We'd all be pretty ornery by the end of the picture taking - what with my brother Scott poking us all and causing as much trouble as possible! After the picture escapade, we'd head inside for a wonderful meal with homemade rolls (my favorite).

I hope that Dennis and I can make some fun traditions for our children that they will remember and love.

So cute!!! My mom bought my sister and I a new dress each year too.. she even mailed a few out to me at college!! I tried to convince her to do the same for me when I got married, but she just laughed! Now Dan has to deal with the tradition of a new outfit for Kaden each Easter and he's not really understanding quite yet... all in due time! ;)
