Easter 2011 was one of the latest dates possible for an Easter Sunday, yet I still found myself up in the night finishing off the bow ties. I guess that it's part of the tradition! Ta da:
And here is the complete ensemble, when Eric joined us later:
(Max didn't get the M&M's either, poor guy.)
I laughed aloud once when I read this advice on someone's blog: "Stop doing family traditions that you hate." There are some of those, aren't there? There are traditions that I feel like I have to carry on even though they take more time and energy than they're worth. I didn't even give the kids Easter baskets this year or dye eggs (yikes!). But I can't give up Easter bow ties! Going to church in Easter bow ties makes the holiday memorable for me. I think that they enjoy it, too.
