Say Yes to the (*Easter) Dress


Every spring, my mom sends the girls Easter dresses. When I called and asked her to describe what she chose this year, she said:

"I'm not saying that Leah's is over the top. But I would suggest that you call the ward music director and request that the opening hymn on Easter Sunday be the wedding march."













And Jolie. Always the Easter bridesmaid, never the bride.











Thank you Susan! Although technically the dresses weren't free. In exchange, we are required to provide a picture of the grandkids on Easter day.

Payment, in full:

Rumor is your bishop sat nervously on the stand praying that Leah wouldn't break out in ... "Don't Cry for Me California" (to the tune of "Don't Cry for Me Argentina."

That dress is fabulous! And Jolie is as cute as ever too! I will say that Cal needs a sweater vest. I *heart* sweater vests. Actually I should unpack all of Drew's sweater vests and send them to Cal!

Rileigh said...

they are as beautiful as their mother. wow. great pictures.

Aileen said...

Just what I wanted to see! Oh, so incredibly cute. I didn't think you could get more photogenic than Jolie....Leah has blossomed and matched her sis. in that department. All 3 of them just SPARKLE!!!!

The pic where Leah is laying on Jolie's lap giggling? I die a bit inside (and that's a good thing). And as for Hil's weight lifting regimen, I can only recommend some quality, close-grip, bench presses. (There's a strong possibility I just googled what the best tricep workout would be.) I'm just trying to look out for the girl, ya know?

Emmers said...

GORGEOUS! I love the Easter dresses and outfit. Your kids make them look so good!

Jenny ESP said...

I do! (ba dum chick)

Leslie said...

So cute. My kids never made it out of their pajamas on Easter Sunday.

Chris and Erin said...

Why do I live so far away from you? What beautiful pictures! Leah is looking so much older, she has grown so much since I last saw her... granted it has been about 7 months since I last saw you... Thanks for posting them!!! I love seeing your babies grow up, even if it is just through pictures! Love you all!

Aileen said...

I am still obsessing! Leah's smile seriously LIGHTS up the world!!!!!

Kristin said...

The scenery is gorgeous! (And so are the kids obviously... ;) You'll have to use one of these to put right next to her real bridals at the reception someday. How funny.

Lexy and Jared said...

Hil's arm "distraction" almost made me pee a little. Seriously. I have no bladder control. And as far as your 3 comments scaring me--no way, dude. I'm planning on us hanging out when you get to DC. It's a mere 6 and 1/2 hour drive--totally doable for bffs like us.

And, Lizzy, Doyle, Logan, and Andy said...

That is a great Easter dress! I Leah wears it well!
