The days are longer and the nights are shorter.

Are your kids waking up at unholy hours due to the passing of the vernal equinox? Mine are. And Bubby is not OK with going to bed while the sun is out even a tiny bit. "The sky isn't black yet; it's still purple," she says. Smarty.

Yesterday, Dill's parents hosted an early family Easter dinner since they will be out of town for the real deal. My mother-in-law goes all out with an egg hunt, Robin Eggs and jelly beans on the table and goody-bags for the kids. So, we dolled up the babies and took some pictures. I edited them in Photoshop Elements with MCP Actions' Mini Fusion action. It's free, so if you like what you see, go download it from them (don't forget the instructions, too)! I think it adds just the right amount of saturation (color) and contrast and makes any picture amazing.


  1. Here in Idaho it isn't quite sunny yet but when I was in AZ, Jack was waking up at 6 or 6:30 instead of his usual 8. Oh man...if I lived in AZ for good, I would have to really invest in some good Eclipse curtains.

  2. So adorably cute! All of the bunch.

    Have you ever heard of Pioneer Woman's actions for PSE? They are free to download :)

  3. my two year old is waking up at unholy times! i need to invest in some better window treatments!! your kids are freaking cute, but you already know that! :]

  4. i've been craving jelly beans all week, and this post made me want them even more.

    your kiddos are so cute.


I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
