A few weeks before Easter,  Susannah said, “We need to make new matching outfits, all of our other ones don’t fit everybody.”  I said, “What?!  We don’t have time to make new outfits!”

And that was the end of that.  I thought.

Then two weeks before Easter, Susannah had a dream that we all had these matching blue and green jumpers with brown ribbon around the waist and brown ruffles at the bottom.  Later that day Susannah, Leah and I were shopping at JoAnn fabrics, and Susannah and Leah found that same material Susannah dreamed about,  and they both liked it, convinced me that I liked it too, and needless to say we came home with a couple bolts of the material 😀  Happily,  all of us girls can sew now, so we each made our own outfit, which made getting them all done in two weeks time a breeze…well, almost!

We all love how they all coordinate and match, but each of ours is just a tad different, whether it’s in the skirts, tucks, ruffles or ribbons 😀

You most probably remember the  picture we posted about a week ago where we look like we’re about to kill each other 😀  Here’s the rest of them for you to enjoy 😀  Mommy was our wonderful photographer again, so that all of us girls could be in the picture at the same time.   Thankfully it stopped raining and the sun even peeked out a little for an hour or two while we were taking pictures.

 

 

This one is hilarious because we were all smiling nicely for the camera (for once) and Charissa suddenly says, “Look! Green grass!” right as Mommy took this picture.

Mommy got quite a few pictures of us  ‘in between the official pictures’ 😀

 

 

 I forget who had the idea to get our instruments, but it made for some fun pictures.  We were all playing around right here before Mommy was going to take the ‘official’ picture.

 

 The ‘official’ picture 😀

 

 Susannah playing around with her cello

 

 And we had to do a funny picture with our instruments, too…of course!

 

How much we love our instruments…

 

 You are going to think we are quite the violent group…we just can’t resist I’m-gonna-beat-you-up pictures!

 

 {laughing about how ridiculous we’re acting}

 

 Pretending to be scared of something Susannah is pointing at…

 

 …and so terrified we fell the opposite way 😀

 

 We had a hard time looking horrified for the first picture 😀

 

 

 

 More fun 😀

 

 Every time we put the person back down on the ground, we tried teasing them by saying, ‘Put the head down first!’ 😀

 

 

 

 

 

 

They dropped me…

…and laughed about it 😀

 Susannah giving us encouragement 😛 😀

 

 

 I think Cassia died…and we’re laughing about that, too.

 

 I just love this picture!

 

 and this one!

 

 We were getting goofy [I know, you never could have guessed such a thing!], and started singing the ‘Christmas Can Can’ by Straight No Chaser.  We’re all singing, “…look here comes Santa Claus, Santa, Santa, Santa, Santa!”   And Anna is hollering, “Guys! Guys!”   This is Easter, not Christmas…but oh well!

 

 

   Jumping pictures are so much fun to do…and to see afterwards 😀

 

 

 

 

Susannah’s face in this one is so funny–“Do I have to jump again?!”

 

 This was an accident because in the picture Mommy took before this one, she said, “Ready, Simon says…don’t go!” and we all jumped.  So this time Susannah was all prepared not to ‘go’ 😀

 

 Monkeys in the tree…

 

 

 

 

 

And lastly…a video Mommy snuck on us.  I love how Cassia stows away her bow, Steven Sharp Nelson style 😀

 

Happy, happy [belated] Easter everyone 😉

    Hey guys, looks like fun!!

    I was wondering, how come Charissa and Rebekah don’t wear hair coverings like the rest of you guys?

    Keep doing what you do!

      Hi Pindari! Thank you 🙂 In answer to your question, each of us girls have asked to wear the headcovering on our own between the ages of 9 to 14 🙂 Both Bekah and Charissa have both recently asked about wearing them, so now Daddy and Mommy are going to be doing a mini Bible study with them, just to make sure they understand what it means. So pretty soon you’ll be seeing pictures of them with headcoverings on 😉
      Thanks for your comment 🙂

        Oh I see. So it’s kind of like an ‘older’ girl thing 😉

        That’s so cool, can’t wait!
