One of the things, my husband has had to learn is that I have a few must have’s for Easter.
First is that all the kids have an Easter outfit. Sometimes this does mean something new, but not always. This year, all four girls got a new dress; the boy’s outfits came from church clothes that aren’t regularly worn.
For instance, River wore a shirt that’s only been worn once or twice. The sweater vests only get worn on Easter.
The second thing is that we get a family picture. This year we took some both before and after church. We don’t get a lot of opportunities to get a nice family picture with everyone dressed up, so I really want to take advantage of it.
And the third thing is that we get a family picture with the new baby. They grow so fast that I have to capture that stage of their lives as they come into our family!
