that involves a basket of candy
left overnight by a giant bunny,
and pastel colored eggs
hidden amongst emerald grass.
Little girls in pretty dresses.
This Easter the girls got "dressed up"
in dresses I made using the Ice Cream Social pattern
by Oliver + S.
They didn't exactly pose well for mama.
Not really at all.
I'm sure if I somehow spliced all seven photos together
I'd end up with one perfect shot.
But that's not nearly as much fun.
Elena found the golden egg.
They both found pink Jellycat elephants in their baskets.
This is Stella grabbing Nerds from DRL.
Handfuls at a time.
There's just something about these photos.
Save the bottom one,
she looks so...
Like I'm getting a preview of teenage Elena.
It's scary as hell.
We don't do fancy shoes.
They're just not little-girls-who-play-like-boys friendly.
Even with Easter dresses.
That's how we roll.
I hope you had a blessed Easter.
Free from fire ants,
unpacked Uhaul boxes,
and the Coxsackie virus.
