A look at past Easters

The first Sunday after we brought Lindy home in April 2006 was Easter. I was really torn about whether we should take Lindy to church but Don insisted. If I remember correctly, she did really well and the people around us were quite forgiving! Looking at these pictures, I can't believe how little she was. She had chubby little wrists and thighs and that toothy grin and cheesy, squinty smile cracked us up.

In 2007 it was very cold (for south Texas) and rainy, so she didn't get to wear the first two dresses I had chosen for her. We also had to hide eggs inside. We hadn't even told her she was going to hunt for eggs or the purpose of the basket but it must've been instinctive. We handed her the basket and in moments she had gathered all the eggs. Believe me, she's NOT that ambitious or efficient when it comes to cleaning her room!

Tomorrow is supposed to be cooler and possibly rainy, so I'm already choosing plan B for her dress. I am looking forward to her enjoying the day and I already know she'll be thrilled there is candy involved...

Happy Easter!

I LOVE THIS POST!!! Oh Lisa- she is darling. Rob arrived home from China Thursday night and Easter was Sunday - I think he and Hannah slept until Sunday:)

This year should be a little less chaotic.

These pictures are fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing.

Happy Easter, sweet friends - we love you!

Hope you all had a warm, fun Easter! I might have to blog-lift your idea and post some past Easter pictures of my kids. I like that idea. Especially since I'm not DOING anything today it seems :-)
