Not The Easter Picture I'd Planned


It's not that we think dyeing eggs or candy-filled Easter baskets are wrong. It just isn't a tradition we've really done with our boys. Maybe we will next year or someday if the mood strikes us. But today they don't know any different, and I saved money and sanity- no Easter grass to haunt me for the next two months. Or eternity.





So, we didn't dress up for Easter after all. No church for us today as we're all getting over coughs and colds. But big plans for next Sunday. We'll be dressed to the nines.

It's spring break and I'm looking forward to doing (drum roll, please) ... nothing. Doesn't that sound wonderful?

  1. Cute hair! We aren't even out of pj's yet. Definitely not a traditional Easter here either!

  3. How funny and cute! MY kdis actually dressed up and looked awesome...and posed very nicely for pics in front of all of my blooming bushes outside. I can't wait to post the pics.

  4. I think those Easter pictures are perfect! Real, authentic moments captured on film are my favorites. My parents never did Easter baskets for us, but we always started Easter morning with an egg hunt. Today I kept the tradition going by hiding eggs with my mom for my niece and nephew. It was cute!

    Happy Easter to your adorable family!

  8. We don't color eggs either...just do hidden baskets and usually have breakfast out.

    And when did Carter chopped his hair. It's cute! (And so are the other boys -- ha!)

    Have a great week doing nothing...

  13. Your Easter sounds wonderful! We spend each holiday having to stop at 3 homes and expecting to eat at all locations. I feel lucky to have so much family, but at the same time it is exhausting. I couldn't imagine doing it with more than one kid. Happy Easter!

  18. I like have long days of nothing either. We did venture to a log cabin for our spring break. We "hiked" with our 1-year old. Our Ergo sling came in very handy.
