The Good Enough Easter Outfits
My kids wore their Easter clothes to church today. (Next week is General Conference for my church, and we watch our prophet speak on tv rather than attending meetings) so we won't actually be going to church on Easter.
For some reason this year, I didn't go all out on Easter clothes. Sammie is wearing something she already had and Ryan is wearing an old outfit of Luke's. I did buy Luke a new sweater vest and shirt to coordinate.
If I weren't huge and pregnant right now, I would have loved to have coordinated myself with my kids and bought myself this darling dress with a cardigan:
or this cute dress and a cardigan:
(Both are from Nordstrom.)
In the past, I've put some serious time into Easter outfits, but this year, I just wasn't feeling it.
During Sacrament meeting, we were sitting on the folding chairs in the back (where we always sit) and I thought about how funny it is that families all seem to have their spots. When I was growing up, my family always sat toward the back of the soft seats, on the second or third to last bench on the north side of the chapel. That was our spot. I can still remember where all the other families sat as well.
Now we are totally part of the folding chairs group. I used to wish we weren't--like somehow we would get more out of the meeting sitting up front. But now I've given in to it and just decided it is the best place for little kids who like to sit on the floor and color, etc. Today, I overheard the lady sitting behind me turn to her husband and say "They are so distracting" referring to my family. I ignored it--but seriously lady--go sit up front!--You know what you are getting with the folding chairs crowd!
