Ok, so here it is, the Easter outfits! Now I do enjoy a good frilly Easter dress, but they just aren't practical for us. We don't attend church so to just buy a frilly dress and then go play at our family party doesn't make much sense--the girls would rather be comfy! So then I was debating getting them some comfy, yet Easter themed outfits...but last year they wore Easter themed shirts from my Etsy shop and I wasn't in the mood to make a new design this year lol. And I couldn't find any store bought ones where Raya and Brielle could match.
then I decided to be all practical and make due with something we already had. Well it's sad that they have *nothing* to wear lol...so we pulled out these little outfits from Crazy 8 that I had bought awhile back. They looked adorable and matching head-to-toe....success! :-) (Crazy 8 has this strawberry line on sale currently---if you like it go check it out!) Shoes are from Target.
|She did the silly chipmunk tooth smile lol...goofball|
|One of the greatest things about Gymboree and Crazy 8 is the matching hair accessories!|
|Apparently the chipmunk tooth smile is genetic :-P|
And then Lee found a religious Easter cartoon online for Raya to watch (He tried to find a church recently that he could start taking the girls too...long story short he wanted a Wednesday night service and "Sunday" school option because he doesn't want to go on the weekend...he thought he found one online so he went to check it out this Wednesday night and he instead ended up in a 1.5 hour bible study class LOL. He said he felt bad leaving so he stayed, but there were people I guess who kept shouting out Amen! and stuff and he couldn't even hear the preacher haha....the visual had me cracking up. So needless to say he's back on the hunt for a different church and Raya is back to her religious training on You Tube :-P
Brielle watched for a few minutes, but unless Dora has a bible video out it's probably a lost cause for now!
|Check out that cheesy pose she busted out!|
|I love this shot!|
|I was trying to get her to look at me by saying her name...she finally turned around and said "What?!" haha|
|She loves putting on this lipstick from the Easter bunny. And notice the tattoos as well ;-)|
And then we attempted some pictures with Mama
|We decided the lighting indoors wasn't working!|
|But when I handed the camera to Lee I forgot to change the settings first! The pictures all were blown lol. After some editing I salvaged them as best as I could---we were just solid white before! I sort of like the finished product, strangely enough|
And then take 3---I fixed the camera settings and we went into the backyard. Unfortunately the fact that I was still taking photos with toddlers made the shoot difficulat regardless :-P
|Don't I look strangely tall standing next to a 3 year old? lol |
I picked my top up at Target---I thought it was kind of Easter egg-ish :-)
|Excuse his weird face---it was cold and I believe this is his "hurry up and take the damn picture" smile :-)|
What did you all choose for Easter outfits this year? Are you a frilly/fancy outfit family or a casual outfit family?
