This year I made Gracie's skirt and bow and William and Russell's bow ties. I also updates my sweater with flowers. Looking back I wish I had made a bow tie for Joseph. His tie is cute, but a bow tie may have been better.
I love Gracie's skinned knees poking out in this picture. It reminds me of Idgie from Fried Green Tomatoes. I love that movie.
Gracie is just cute and William is holding the "Elder Wand" from HP.
I am so glad I made at least something for Easter. My aunt posted something my grandmother had written about growing up in Colonial Mexico. One thing she mentioned is that she always got a new (handmade) dress at Christmas and Easter. This is a tradition I want to continue. She also said that growing up she had 2 dresses. One she was wearing and one being washed. Reading about her childhood (where she didn't have much but at the same time had everything) made me think a lot about luxuries and what would have been luxuries then seem like necessities now. I need to be better about not taking the luxuries for granted. And not spoiling my kids...or myself. Cause you can be happy without a lot of "stuff". Maybe even happier if we can live without it and without wanting it.
I have everything I need and I am so grateful for that.
