Two years ago I made Sutton an Easter dress and the boys, including Michael, matching ties. My outfit coordinated too. Honestly, I think my husband was a little embarrassed but I thought it was fun even if a little over the top.
I can't remember if I made any Easter clothes last year. If I did, I didn't blog about it.
I had planned to make matching Easter dresses for Sutton and Gemma but I wasn't going to makes ties again. Too much effort, too little time.
I made a dress for Sutton but it didn't turn out as I wanted so I grabbed a partly finished dress I started a while ago and finished that. The dress was inspired by Katiedid's dresses that she made for her girls a few years ago. (Side note: Anyone else wish Katie was still blogging??)
Sutton was pretty pleased with the dress, as you can see. Although she doesn't love the dress as much as she loves to pose. :)
And no, she didn't wear those boots to Church!
After the failure of Sutton's first dress, I didn't even attempt to make one for Gemma. Which worked out well because one of my friends gave Gemma this adorable dress. I love the yellow and navy together. Plus is has stripes and polka dots! Love.
This isn't a great picture of the dress. Gemma hasn't figured out how to pose just yet. Ha, ha.
Here's the whole crew. We don't match. Heck, we don't even coordinate but I don't care. I have been thinking about my priorities a lot lately and I have come to a realization that I put too much effort into unimportant things. So I am trying to change that.
Those five people in the picture are where my focus needs to be. Do you ever struggle with your priorities? How do you find a balance?
Hmm... this post really took a different direction than I planned. :)
I hope you all had a great Easter!!
