Wyatt's outfit was one of the few things I kept from when Will was 2. It's adorable even though you can't see the dogs embroidered on his pants. I had just gone through a box and found it and realized it's the right size. Yay! So I planned the rest of the outfits around that. Plus Elle was already planning on wearing this yellow dress. I love easy.
Amelia's dress was made from a vintage pillowcase and the Geranium pattern. I cannot say enough how good that pattern is. Fits perfectly, sews up fast. I already started another one. And, it matched many a cloth diaper:
And for Will, I made him a real bow tie. Of course it took a few tutorials for me to figure how to tie it, but it looks swell. I already had the fabric and it kinda matches Wyb's shirt. I used this tutorial. I think I will make about 50 more. Love them.
Maddie was a little trickier. She is rather particular about what she wears and won't wear stuff I make. The best I could do was pick up a yellow scarf. I'm sure she would have picked out a fabulous outfit if she had $100 and lots of time.
Anyway, church was really nice. Because I had to snap a picture we were a tad late. Not exactly late to the meeting, just too late to get good seats. I think I've mentioned before how this building is terrible for large families. It's cutthroat to get a big enough pew. But the speakers and talks were great, the kids were pretty good except that Will brought a Lego creation to church with him. Never bring legos. Your little brother will scream for them and it will break apart and a million pieces during the sacrament.
Afterwards we had a sort of nice dinner. I always have visions of this:
But hey, everyone got a little protein before consuming candy.
Then I collected the Easter baskets, filled them with some little treats (bubbles, chalk and car for the boys, fancy pencils and post-it notes for Elle, mud mask and candle for Maddie, Frozen for Amelia, haha.) and hid them in the yard. They know the Easter Bunny isn't real...
