Easter is this Sunday. Gosh, is it early this year or what. My son is out for Spring Break this week and he didn't even get the full 5 days as "spring break", they counted one as a snow day. When we go to church Sunday, I wonder how many little girls will be dressed in dresses like above? or jeans as a fancy top. This are so different from when I was growing up. Church was your Sunday best, not jeans and shorts. Check out the cute pattern in my store:
