Our Easter Weekend

A helicopter? What does that have to do with Easter??

We found out last-minute that a local church was hosting an "Egg Drop" at the high school near our house, so we grabbed the girls and away we went.

I promised my oldest daughter an egg hunt and a helicopter dropping eggs. That all happened, but with the huge crowd, we ended up with zero eggs. None! Our neighbors gave the girls one egg each, so that was much appreciated! We saw all of our neighbors at the event and our little one was thrilled just to run around a football field with a ton of kids. The oldest was disappointed, but it gave us a chance to talk with her again about being THANKFUL for what we do have. Besides, the Easter Bunny was still going to visit our house!

Today, our church hosted an Easter brunch and egg hunt for the kids this morning. I must not be good at this...after the girls put their jackets on, we were the last family outside and my girls found only two eggs each. Better than the helicopter experience, but two?! Do I need to be more competitive with this egg-hunting business?

I can never get a photo of the girls when they are BOTH looking at the camera:

Our girls had a ball at church, then we spent the rest of the day with family. They found eggs all day long and now they have two baskets overflowing with Easter eggs. Now I'm wondering what to do with all of this candy?

It was really, really fun to be with my girls all day long for TWO days in a row without working. I think I need to take weekends off more often!

The girls' dresses are made by Becky at Granny B's Clothesline.

Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend too!

Polka Dot Rain Coat & Umbrella

How cute is this Pastel Disco Dot rain coat, boots and umbrella set?

Spring showers are on their way!

So, it did snow here in Nashville on Saturday. Then it melted and made lots of MUD. These boots are needed around here! Last year I found a pair of polka dot rain boots at Old Navy for my oldest daughter. Her feet have grown and we are looking for a new pair. She is almost four and my youngest is almost 20 months old. They both LOVE puddles so this outfit is a must!

Found at the cutest little website (polka dots everywhere), Duck Duck Goose Boutique. So much fun. They have dresses, boys' clothes, shoes, baby gifts and diaper bags too. It really is a great store. Have you seen the CROCS for spring that are like Mary Janes? Maybe these were out last year and I'm just way behind, but I really want these for my girls. I'm searching for a shop that has my girls' sizes in stock. These shoes sell so quickly!

If you love the Pastel Disco Dots fabric shown in the rain set above, I have it available in my shop. I can make Initial Tees, Birthday Tees, Initial Bags, Diaper Bags or Girl Purses with it!

What is on your shopping list for spring?

Kid's Initial Tees for Spring

The short-sleeve shirts are here for spring...if only the weather would cooperate, right?

It's a little cold here in Nashville today, but Easter is just a few weeks away and I am hoping for some spring flowers soon (at least for Easter Sunday).

Our model, PJ, is wearing our hot pink/pink Candy Damask shirt in the photo above. We have a wide selection of damask fabrics for spring.

We just ordered some black/white damask too...which would look really cute as in initial or number on a pink or white tee.

There are a lot of choices in fabrics, ribbons, shirt colors and styles at Polka Dot Market. Sometimes it can be overwhelming (for you and for me!). If you ever want to write or call me to discuss your design, I will lay out the fabrics and ribbons and then send you a photo. It's that easy!

Look for this great damask fabric to start popping up on our Girls Initial Aprons too.

For boys, we have preppy seersucker stripes and a new "Chocolate Pony" or "Vintage Firetrucks" fabric for their Birthday Number or Initial Tees. Remember, any fabric you see on our site can be made into a custom applique number or initial for your favorite little boy too.

I am busy sewing lots of Easter baskets this week (order deadline is Monday), so spring is on my mind. It is cold and they are calling for snow tonight...we'll see!

Come to Polka Dot Market to see more of our Damask Tees for girls and Initial Tees for kids.

I'll let you know about the snow.
