One thing I've learned as my family has grown is how to let things go. There was a time when I started planning Easter outfits in January. Not this year! The day before Easter I was rummaging through boxes to come up with something for all the little loves that would look like they had a mother that cared.
Look how God provides! Through hand-me-downs from older siblings and others, I think they look pretty spiffy. (Recognize Heidi's outfit, Jane Ann? Gasp! It's gingham!)
Emelie was concerned that she wasn't in shades of blue (which she found ironic because she is always wearing blue), but I loved the outfit she selected and encouraged her not to change a thing!
This is happy Hunter on his way to church.
This is what happens to Heidi's hair after she pulls all the bands out. The back seat of our van is a graveyard for hair do-dads. She goes into the van with cute girl hair and emerges looking like a Nick Nolte DUI photo.
