2007 Easter Dresses

This year for the second year running, I wanted, but didn't manage, to make Easter dresses for my girls, so I'm consoling myself with pictures of the last ones I made, in 2007.

I had this vision in my head of a dress with gathered neckline and sleeve inserts for a couple of years before I made it come true. It came out kind of close to how I envisioned it.

Now I'll treat you to an exclusive behind-the-scenes view of how a typical photo shoot goes down at our house. Witness the quick devolution from picture perfect . . .

into general shenanigans . . .

into pandemonium.

This pattern of behavior is not limited to photo shoots. It's a fair description for most undertakings at our house. Except usually, there's also crying involved.

Also, see pretty Zuzu?

Here's what she was hiding in her mouth the whole time.

If I wrote medical textbooks, I would tell pediatricians-in-training that a blue tongue indicates a child who has recently had gustatory chemosensory exposure to saccharides.
