Easter

Easter Sunday is great. I wonder how the tradition started of "Easter dresses" etc. Perhaps wearing something "new" is symbolic of the resurrection, like eggs. If nothing else, it's nice to dress special just to remember the resurrection. What do you think?
Jill has her eyebrows up all the time. it makes her look surprised, as if saying "oh hi, i didn't see you there."

I can't get Jill to sit anymore (see a few posts back). she stiffens up and will not bend at the waist. we're working on teaching here to hold onto things so we don't have to steady her all the time. what a crazy girl. and, not that's not Antonio Banderas. that's Jeff.





Here's a family picture that's going on the wall. as many of you know Jill has two teeth poking through. now, it's not her tongue that's out, its her lips in. it's funny to watch as she tries to figure out what is going on in her mouth. i wish you could see her Easter dress here. she looked so pretty!

I love the picture of Jeff holding Jillian! It looks like she's got some dancers blood :) Olivia likes to pull the lips in these days too, I wonder why these little girls do that?

I agree with Scotty. I love seeing pictures of Jillian, but I also LOVE seeing pictures of you and Jeff. You two are the reason she is so cute!!!

You guys are adorable! I'm starting to feel old though...

Brett, I think they suck on their lips like that when they're teething or have new teeth. Caroline has sucked her lips so dry that they've cracked! I keep putting lip stuff on her, and she just sucks it right off. I hope these teeth break through soon!

I like the idea about new clothes and the resurrection. I heard a talk when I was very young (YW age) and the speaker said that Easter shouldn't be about new clothes, etc. I think perhaps she meant the focus shouldn't be on the new clothes but it came off as we shouldn't ever have new clothes for Easter. Isn't it funny how something can stick with you for so long. I felt guilty even thinking about new clothes at Easter. Next year I may just have a new dress! ;) ;) :) Thanks Alisha!
