a different kind of easter!

This year was a little different for us...I love traditions! Love, love, LUH--OOOOVE traditions! But this year...I was tired. We all were!

So. What happens when you have three, um, I mean FOUR kids three and under, including two four week olds?

Instead of hard-boiling, dyeing and decorating eggs, you'll just put stickers on the fake eggs that you're going to have the three-year-old stuff with candy. See? Fake eggs...

and stickers...!

And you let the kids eat probably too much candy as they stuff the eggs. But maybe that would've happened anyway! See the totally thrilled face of Julia? Yeah, she really, really likes candy! See?

Then, because of the craziness of your day with four kids three and under including two four week olds, you barely have time to make it to Target to get basket stuffers. But you do make it, with a day or two to spare! Look at those cute baskets (not to mention kids)!

More candy? Suh-WEET!

Kate IS happy here...promise!

Your favorite part of the whole Easter traditions thing this year WILL be shopping for and buying the PERFECT Easter dresses. And when your unsuspecting hubby (who is only trying to help!) tries those said perfect dresses on the girls instead of letting you do it, you may or may not have a mini breakdown. Just so ya know!

But look, aren't the dresses perfect?!

Here's Dada with the other two girls, in their not so perfect, but still cute, dresses! (Good job matching us, Dada!)

And the only picture of you will probably be the one taken by your photographer in the making three-year-old!

When you get home from church, you will probably be exhausted and therefore have to postpone the Easter egg hunt until after naps....EVERYONE'S naps, thus having to undress and then re-dress the girls in their Easter dresses! But look, aren't they cute?!

Easter egg hunting!

After the Easter egg hunt, you probably won't have enough energy for the nice Easter dinner you'd planned. Instead, you'll go pick up a pizza. And postpone the nice Easter dinner until tomorrow (...hopefully!).

So Easter might not be exactly what you'd planned, but hey, everyone WILL survive AND have fun in the process!

Happy Easter!

  1. Last Easter my twin girls were 4 weeks old also. I feel your pain! This Easter was much easier, believe me! We have a 4 year old son as well so not quite as many kiddies as you do, but we can definitely understand what it is like to have twin girls. It does get easier. :)
