Happy (belated) Easter

Holidays are great - when they're safely past. Easter kicked my butt this past weekend, what with last minute project finishing attempts, cleaning, fussy babies that may or may not have succumbed to whatever viral contagion has beset our family this week, etc.
First came egg coloring - what color is the orange egg, Uncle Steve?

*Obligatory inside story explanation - when my brother was Anna's age and learning his colors, I was asking him the colors of the eggs we were dying. He turn the tables on me, holding up an orange egg and asking, "What color is the orange egg, Sarah?"*

I finished the girls' dresses in time (at 2 a.m. Friday night/Saturday morning).
Anna's dress:

Claire's dress:

Unfortunately the lace baby sweater that was to go with it didn't make it. It didn't make it for the knitting olympics, either. It's just not a very successful sweater thus far. At this rate by the time I finish it, it won't fit. That's okay, someone else will have a baby girl and they can have a lovely blue sweater that exactly matches my daughter's dress.

You may notice Claire doesn't look very happy in that picture. Claire wasn't very happy all weekend. She was also spittier than usual. Couple that with the fact that DH is upstairs "spitting up" himself, and I'm pretty sure we've got a family virus going. Yum. To make the weekend more fun, Anna decided that she no longer likes sleeping. Calgon, take me away! I'm honestly afraid to go to bed now. There's germs up there.

I'm happy to announce that the terror of last year's "noisy chicken" was not repeated. Anna is very happy with a tiny chirping baby chicken that does not sing and dance.
And now for something completely different - a baptism gown.

Claire's maternal grandmother (who reads this blog - Hi, Mom!) spent many, many hours creating this beautiful heirloom, based on (but modified) a Dale of Norway pattern. I think the hole she wore in her finger has finally healed.

And just in case you fear that the littlest Unreserved family member never cracks a smile:

Yay for orange eggs!
The outside photo is cute, but the background on Claire's dress looks overly tech-ish.

I still want my 5x7!

"Tech-ish"? It's your mother's loveseat. What's tech-ish about a loveseat? Or are you talking about the green satin? Anyway, that was the only picture I could get of her Sunday. She was not feeling cooperative.
I'm working on the 5x7...
