Not to leave her older brother and sister out. M was not thrilled about the suggestion that she wear the new purple dress she picked up last week. We compromised on capris and a purple top. J's biggest thing was not wearing a tie which I was fine about. Our two younger boys wore new polos. As we took their picture I realized that 4 out of 5 of our kids were wearing BLACK.

How lovely. Put honestly, they looked pretty sharp. I don't want to turn clothing into a battle, especially when it comes to church. They are all pretty good about compromising with Rob and I so we always work out something that we are all happy with. I still remember J telling me that this Christmas he'd wear matching shirts with his two little brothers and I was the one who said he could just wear the same color. He then informed me that this would be the last Christmas he'd match with them. I was kind of tickled by that. We'll see when the Christmas 2010 card picture is taken.
I'll be adding a picture later today. I just wanted to get this out before suddenly it is the end of the week and who wants to read about Easter outfits then? By then I'll be facing the reality that my sweet M is going to be 12 on Sunday. My goodness, 12 sounds so old.... actually everything from here on out sounds old to me. But we'll save that for the end of the week to deal with.
So here I pause to consider a sign off... like the news anchors have a little send off line... I'll have to ponder for a few moments....
so for now it's just me...
