Happy Easter

Foot in Face. Can you tell who's the youngest? I love this picture!

This is our First TIE-LESS Easter. Each year I take pictures of my kids and hang them on the "Easter Wall" and it is so much fun to see what they look like exactly a year later...every year. Well, every year so far, the boys have a new shirt and tie on. I love boys in ties. Our Easter pictures are late this year because I had to wait for the clothes to go on sale. Naomi's dress was actually purchased for $3.99 two years ago before I even knew I was having a girl. Luckily it fit. The boys already had their pants. I just needed shirts and ties. The Children's Place. Great sales. However, by the time it got down to 50% off already reduced prices, these were the only shirts I could find. The ties were gone. I found some ties that I loved at Kohl's but they were $14 dollars each. I bought them. When I showed James later that night, he confessed that he was worried about my spending judgement. His words, "Can you just try to explain what you were thinking?" I agreed to drive twenty five minutes back to Kohl's to take them back. Suffice it to say, we have a tie-less Easter.
James just looked over my shoulder at the new Easter pictures I took today. His first comment: "what's wrong with their shirts? They're all fuzzy." My response: "They were ON SALE! I've waited three weeks to buy shirts and these were the only ones they had! It's gingham!" I know, I know. It's a gingham disaster, but hey, we got Easter pictures for our wall...ties or not. Sub-total=$12 for the gingham shirts. At least Naomi has a bow.

My favorite picture of my Bugaboo. He is getting so big. Luckily, still so innocent.

My favorite picture of my Smooch. I love his pensive look, and his bright red lips.

Notice mud on Jake's pants. I could photoshop this out, but why? It happened the minute he stepped out of the car. I laughed. I love boys.
Plus, how could I get mad at this face? That would almost be inhumane.

My favorite one of Scout. I love her happy personality.
Heaven-sent. She Loves being a part of the party.

William ran in front of me as fast as he could to the car. I could tell he was hiding something behind his back. I slipped into the drivers seat. I found a fresh picked boquet of flowers placed lovingly on my favorite color. Oh...I hope these days never end.
I love being a mom.
