I love Easter!! I love the reason for the season and having kids just makes it better. The easter bunny came to our house and the kids got lots of candy, Easter clothes for church, and some gardening tools. We plan on planting a good size garden and we want the kids to learn how to garden. They got shovels, hoe's, spade's and seeds to plant with. Isaac planted his carrot seeds...without me knowing...and we'll see if they make it. With all the rain we've had...just maybe. The kids looked so cute in their new easter clothes. I love suits on little men. So handsome! Abbie looked really pretty in her dress too. I had to dye her cardigan to match the boy's tie's. It's sometimes hard to find boys and girls matching clothes. Well, every year I seem to figure something out. You kids looked sharp! Love you all! I am also grateful for this season to be able to remember the true reason for Easter.


  1. Cute outfits! I wanna know how you died her sweater!?! I didn't know that was possible.

  2. It's really easy...you buy the "Rit" dye at walmart in the laundry soap isle. It's usually $1.76 a box. I bought the royal blue box. It is usually on the very top shelf. They have very limited colors but, I just diluted it to get the cornflower blue color. I used 1 tsp. of dye crystals to a huge bread bowl of water(metal bowl that held probably 1-2 gallons). I put the cardigan in the dye water for just a little while...keep lifting it up to see what color it was and then when it was the right shade...I pulled it out and through it directly into the washing machine by itself with a little laundry soap. I didn't want anything else getting the dye on it. Then put it directly into the dryer to set the color permanently. It's as simple as that.
