Easter Pictures

Somehow we were all dressed up and ready to go in time to take a family photo Easter morning. I was begging Jeremy to set up the camera and tripod ’cause we all matched and we hadn’t had a family photo taken in a while. Jesse did so well – smiling straight at the camera though there was no one behind it! 🙂

This was taken while Jeremy was still setting up the shot – thus the bib in the picture. Burp rags and bibs got hidden just before the real shot was taken, but they are never far away.

This is Claire’s Easter Dress. I just couldn’t resist making her one, even though I was telling myself to wait till she was older and would not grow out of it so fast. Alas, I could not help myself, and put this together during her nap Saturday afternoon.

I used the most delicious vintage sheet, with periwinkle dahlias and turquoise daffodils.

Also polished cotton, vintage ric-rac, and piping.
I know, I know, an awful lot of trouble for a dress she will only wear a few times. But I have dreamed of this moment.

She loved the dress, but promptly asked for matching panties. I told her she would just have to be lady-like ’cause I ran out of time. 🙂
