With the family all dressed up for easter, I couldn't help but drag us all out for a family photo. And I couldn't believe my luck that all of us were actually looking at the camera. That rarely happens with someone standing behind the camera trying to yell for my kids to look, so the fact that it happened with a camera on the tripod is nothing short of a miracle.

I decided to make the kids a matching hair bow and bow tie. My crafting skills are laughable, but they actually held up for the day. Connor did NOT want to wear his bow tie because it was "too polka dotty" but a little old fashioned bribery won him over...though he did continuously ask me to take it off.

We had a great, albeit busy, easter. It started off with my dad and I going to the sunrise service at church. I had never been before and wanted to go. It was a great service, but an interesting mix of people dressed in suits and people who looked like they just rolled out of bed. I was sporting the just rolled out of bed look, complete with coffee cup in hand.

We went back to church as a family later. Then we headed over to Ian's aunt and uncle's house for lunch. After that, we went to my parent's house for dinner. The kids ingested more candy in one day than anyone should in a month, but I guess that is how it goes. Now I just need to find a really good hiding spot for the rest of the candy! Thankfully the long day beat out the sugar high the kids were on and they went to bed easily and were asleep before bedtime.
