What is Easter to 4 Little Girls?
























After Easter Mass, I jumped out of the car at home "to make lunch" while everyone else went for a ride to go see Lake Michigan. Can you believe it? They missed the Easter Bunny!























Have I mentioned before that I absolutely love all this pink? The dresses, the curls, the tights and shoes, the baskets, the smiles. I loved how many times I would see one of the older girls give an egg to a smaller child. The excitement of opening an egg to see what was inside. Comparing baskets, trading goodies, the conversations, the sharing, the love.

While we were in church I bent down and asked Molly why Easter was such a special day? While I expected to hear something about eggs, candy and rabbits, I was surprised with her response...
"Jesus, he loves us Mom. Today is a day about Him."

It truly is a great day!

I'm really loving all the pink, too. And little girls in bunny ears. And that last picture of the little girl hands with the braceleted wrist? For some reason, that really touches me. And "Jesus, he loves us Mom. Today is a day about Him." Oh my gosh, Girlymom! No wonder you all smile so much in the Girlyfamily...precious.

Love, love, love all the girly pink frou frou. Reminds me of my sisters and I when we were little.

I especially love that in all of the hullabaloo, Molly recognized why we celebrate Easter. So sweet!

I love that she knows what Easter is all about, and He even trumps candy.

I also love all the pink and frills. My daughter is now into anything BUT that. *sigh*

I puffy heart PINK too.

My kids were so happy to hear the upbeat church music. It was a nice change from the somber palm sunday mass. My Lola yelled, in the middle of mass, "JESUS IS ALIVE!!!" LOL... I nearly peed in my new tights. :)

How wonderful that she knows. Also, I didn't think I wanted girls (before I was pregnant), but I love dressing them up too. The tights, the shoes, the hair. I love it!

But what if we don't want to leave Wii World? What if Wii World is more fun that being an adult?
