Easter Goodness

This is Nana. She sat with my girls as they colored their eggs and wrote on each egg before it was dyed. She did this every year when I was growing up. It was a nostalgic moment.

Easter morning, before church. Note: these girls DO NOT match and DO NOT have new Easter dresses!!!!!!! I have decided to try my darn hardest to save (a little) money. In pursuit of this goal, I opted out of Easter dresses. It almost killed me....no, seriously. Killed. I am a person who believes that the fine print in the Constitution states that it is your God given right to own a new Easter and Christmas dress, every year. This morning I woke up and didn't even want to go to church. What honestly is the point of going if you don't have a new dress and sandals. I dragged myself there. This little lesson has taught me this--saving money just isn't worth the sacrifice of a new outfit.

Other highlights of our day:
  • while I was upstairs, Makell and Addie took all of the freshly dyed, hard boiled eggs and bowled with them on our wood floor in the entry. Yes, that's right--bowled! They rolled them hard enough until they hit the front door.
  • The choir sang a couple of songs during sacrament meeting. At the finish of the third song I hear Makell loudly exclaim, "Whew!"
  • I was teaching primary and asking the kids some questions. I asked them what Jesus was praying for in the Garden. Makell yells out, "dimes". Yup, that's right, He was praying for money. So well taught, that child. A few teachers gave me concerned looks.....wasn't the first time. And hey, what can they expect from a child that doesn't have a new Easter dress!

How does that Easter Bunny know to give these girls color coordinated swimsuits?! That Easter Bunny is a genius....but, she didn't ever think that they would slip them on after church-with their boots-and play outside. Straight classy.

Boots and swimsuits...straight up classy for sure! That is going to be a picture you hang on your fridge 20 years from now and laugh...cue the one of Tyler and Kirk in those beautiful sweaters and was that feathered hair I remembered?

Ahhh, yes...the boots are a "must have" accessory with a swimsuit! Very nice!

They become more and more Texan everyday! I love it! And I wish I had Nana to write on my eggs!
