Easter 2010

A year or two ago, I had purchased some fabric in the Red Tag section of JoAnn's for 50% off the clearance price with the idea of making matching skirts for Anna & I and ties for Daddy & Benjamin for Easter. Last Easter I was pregnant, and didn't really want my matching skirt to be a maternity skirt since I wouldn't get much use out of it. So, I decided to get the fabric out and make them for this Easter. I got to thinking that the fabric really wasn't right for ties, but we had also gotten some nice red fabric later on in the Reg Tag section for me to make Daddy a tie. So, I decided to use the red fabric for ties for Daddy, Benjamin, and Peter and the original fabric would still be for Anna and I for skirts.

We also wanted to do something nice for the kids' Easter baskets this year, the first Easter in our "new" house...

Peter checking out his basket (I remembered seeing plastic jelly beans in previous years and knew I wanted to get them for Peter's basket because his nickname is "Jelly Bean", but I couldn't find them. Finally I found them at Menard's! So, Peter's basket has plastic jelly beans instead of plastic eggs...he's chewing on one of the green jelly beans in the picture) :
