Happy Easter

Happy Easter from the Freeds.

Max in his Easter attire, courtesy of Aunt Sherry. It was an adorable Winnie the Pooh outfit, though it looks like it is swallowing his small, little 2 1/2 week old body.

Ellie in her beautiful Easter dress. Here she is showing off her princess ballerina dance moves. This picture was also taken before she went outside and realized that Mommy wasn't fibbing when I said it was cold and she would need to wear tights or socks....the crisp, spring morning air helped her to make the decision to go with the socks.

A rather pitiful family portrait, but at least we're all together.

Ellie loves the egg hunting part of Easter the most. We hid and hunted out eggs over and over for the next week.

Ellie made quite the haul from the Easter bunny this year. Max was not forgotten either, but he was not as excited as his big sister was.

Spring is here

I bought these adorable headbands when Ellie was a baby, and subjected her to wearing them for pictures when she was about 7 months old. I think the headbands are just too cute to keep in a box, so today I pulled them out and got my camera ready.

What a couple of cuties!!! Happy early Easter!!!

Ballerina Ellie

We got Ellie some ballet clothes recently, after she saw another little girl in the store with her ballet clothes on and kept talking about how beautiful the other little girl was and how she wished she had ballerina clothes....that's what Ellie says now when she wants something...."I wish I had that when I get big."

So anyway, since she's such a girlie girl and loves to dress up, we knew she'd enjoy the ballet clothes, and she sure does. She put the clothes on one morning, and wore them all day long. We played school, she made some little books, and then she read her stories to Max. He already lights up when he hears her voice, trying to turn towards her and smiling. Later we had to turn on "ballerina music" and get the video camera out so she could perform for us.
