Easter is coming!

This week I thought we'd try some fun things for Easter, or fun for a 2 1/2 year old that is. We've been "hiding" the plastic eggs almost daily, and yesterday we colored the eggs. Reed was so excited, though I don't think the colors turned out very well, but oh well, the activity itself was exciting to him, and he sat at the table forever while we did them and made Easter cards too!

So proud of his eggs!

Not at all Easter related, but one of our friends gave us some new bows that actually would stay in our minimal here she is first bow in all her glory!

And so excited to be eating her banana!
Here it is.....the smocked dress.......don't zoom in too closely because I'm sure you'll see all my mistakes. But all in all I have to say I am pleased at how it turned out considering it is my first one. And we had pictures made this week, so they turned out pretty cute here is the finished product! I'm now working on some little pants so hopefully those will turn out as well, if so I can post some more. At least I'm having fun doing it all!
