Togetherness Makes: Easter-Blessing Day

This is what you look like on Easter Sunday when your mom has four week old twins and church starts at 9:30 am.

Here's what you look like on Saturday afternoon when you have a grandma staying with you who has the foresight to suggest taking Easter/Blessing pictures before the chaos of the actual day.

 We were so glad to be joined by close friends and family for the twins' blessing, even though it was a busy day for some of them.  This isn't a picture of everyone, seeing as Lucy, Henry and the Toblers ran off as soon as Sacrament was over.

Here are a bunch of pictures of the littles-- just fair warning.  
I simply can't help it.

 Pink bow = Tessa
White bow = Charlotte

 Grandma J made their dresses.  I just love them.  They are simple cotton with a faint Swiss dot-esque pattern. Both dresses were made from the same pattern, but embellished differently.

Mom also made blankets for the girls out of a crocheted table cloth that belonged to my grandma.

A matching dress for Lucy.
I honestly don't know how my mom does it.  She made all of this within a few days.  I am in awe of her.
