Easter Outfits for the Girls on Holy Saturday


My girls loved their Christmas dresses and skirts (pictured here, here and here) from Baby My Love so much that we decided to order their Easter Outfits from Sharon as well! These will most likely also end up being their outfits for my sister's wedding in July. They are so lovely and comfortable too!

I tried to take a picture of all four girls on Holy Saturday, just before we headed out the door to attend the Easter Vigil at our new parish, but our littlest one didn't want to cooperate! :)

 


Twinkle Toes: Mint Twirl Skirt (Women's Small) paired with a white top and this Peach Cardigan

Chiquita: Pink Rose Floral Twirl Skirt (Women's Small) paired with this Burgundy Cardigan
*Made with the fabric from this Easter Dress. Sharon is great about custom orders!

Rose & Grace: Easter White Rose Floral Full Twirl Dress (Size 8 and 2T)

Baby My Love is currently having a sale and Easter Dresses are currently 15% off!

We also gave Chiquita (who turned 14 on Holy Saturday this year!) a new brown scapular from Stella Marigold Art as one of her birthday gifts, to replace the one we gave her years ago and worn daily.

*Nails painted with Fig from Lisieux Nail Polish!


Our older girls have loved singing in the choir this year, here at our new parish, and had been looking forward to and practicing for all of the Triduum Liturgies all of Lent. I didn't get many pictures, but it was all so beautiful! Here is one beautiful picture from the Easter Vigil taken of the girls up in the choir loft by our good friend, Marc Salvatore, who happens to be up here visiting!  I'll be back with more Easter pictures sometime soon... 


Happy Easter!

Palm Sunday

  
A few pictures from “My Holy Week Missal 🌿



She looks like a little angel but wore herself out (and her mama!) during Mass as usual 🌿🤦‍♀️🙏🏻😴 Someday we will make it all the way through Mass again without needing to take her out of church...

Our Lady, Mediatrix of All Graces, Ora Pro Nobis!
