Easter 2015

Sunday, April 12, 2015

It is becoming a bit of a tradition with my Mom's side of the family to meet at their property in Weimar, TX each year. We've made the trip from Mississippi to the Texas country to join in the festivities two of the last four occasions. Spring is my absolute favorite in Texas with all of the bluebonnets blooming. Weimar is in the middle of no where, but thankfully close enough to the Warrenton antique show to shop for a few hours!

Easter in the country means we forgo the traditional pretty dresses for something a bit more practical. Both of my girls wore their Tandy tops. Tandy's version was a test I tried in woven fabrics. Since it didn't go over her head, the pattern was release as intended with knit fabrics recommended only. To salvage the top, I cut and slit in the back yoke, and it works.

I'll never understand why my kids run around with their tongues hanging out, but I'll try to cherish the memories since I know it doesn't last.

While one group stays behind to hide eggs, the other group takes the kids to the Colorado River that runs along the property to throw rocks, fish, etc. Inevitably, most of them end up covered in mud. Avery is especially good at finding the mud.

Check out that competitive smile!!

I love that we hold the egg hunt on Saturday, so it's not so distracting from the meaning of Easter on Sunday. 1 Peter 3:18 For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.
