I decided to skip out on buying new Easter dresses-- a tradition I was ready to put down. Each year we slap some cash on the counter for dresses the girls will wear once or twice, just because it's what we've always done. I'm definitely not taking a hard stance against it, but this year I was really just feeling like it was unnecessary. Plus, those kids could wear paper sacks and still be darn adorable.
Anyyyyywayyyyy... let me back up a little.
Our band played out of town on Friday night. I ended up coming down with a fever and flu-like symptoms in the wee Saturday morning hours, so Saturday was weird. I can't even remember the last time I was miserable with a fever. (Are grown-ups even supposed to get fevers? That's rhetorical, but I still thought the fact that I had a fever was pretty dumb.) We picked up the girls and decided to stay in a hotel Saturday night so we could be closer to our Sunday morning destination (for church, family gatherings, etc.) since we live an hour & 1/2 away and we'd basically been traveling the whole weekend. So, the girls opened their baskets in our funny hotel room, and though for a second I looked around the room feeling like a bad mom, Hope swears it was the best Easter ever. Kids are easy to please-- give them a swimming pool and a vending machine and they're in heaven.
Oh, yeah-- and just because I can't stop cracking up over it:
I hope whether you celebrated Easter or not on Sunday, your day was absolutely lovely! xo. Katie
