It's nice to be back in this space after a little break. The boys had off of school for a few days and it's been a wild and hairy ride. They are all heading back today and I'm looking forward to some peaceful moments with only two at home.
About a week before Easter, it occurred to me that I had given no consideration to our Easter outfits. For the past two Easters I've made ties for all the boys in the family and dresses and skirts for the girls. I quickly whipped up two dresses (Simplicity 3835 and 4206) for me and the girl, but the ties, well ... they just didn't happen this year. Life got in the way and, sadly, my little Easter tradition did not make the cut. (Joe also informed me that he does not like to tie the cotton ties and that it was a pain in the butt to do so. Even for one day.)
The dresses are made from a Shabby Chic sheet that Karyn spotted while thrifting in Maryland last summer. We split the set and I put it aside for Easter. And then forgot about it. And now I see I had the sheet pre-destined for the boys' ties. Totally forgot about that one, too.
And no Easter outfit is complete without green shoes. (Actually, my black toenails, which I've yet to paint, were too ugly to expose with my pink shoes and I just didn't have energy to paint them.) But the dress has green in it.

Oh, today is Sawyer's first post-op appointment. I am very happy to report that the doctor called (March 30th ::ahem::) and left a message that Sawyer's biopsy is fine. I didn't check my voicemail until April 7th ... I could have known so much earlier ... and stressed so much less ...
AND I forgot to report back that in February, the bank robber was caught and arrested. He was from a neighboring town.
