Easter Blues

Easter Sunday we met at a local
park for a SONrise Service.
Since we met a full hour after
sunrise it hardly qualified as
a Sunrise Service.

However, someone forgot to send
me a memo about the dress code!

Just look!

The Baby's coat is trimmed in
blue...her pants are blue
and Caleb's coat is blue.

I wore burgundy...
But both Grandmas were in
Denny and Mikey got in on
the blue theme with their jeans...

How, oh how
did I miss the memo?
I look so good in that color!

You can tell that Jonathan is feeling a
bit left out too.
Man, he doesn't even own blue...
well except for that new suit.
What was he thinking?
Oh, I know the Formal is coming
and he wants the suit to be clean and ready... blue for him.

Adorable Sarah is feeling
tired but confident in red.
She is a very independent one.

The scheme was so devious that
they even dressed little Noah
in their color code.
Just look....
right there by the girls.
Those innocent looking girls.
Don't believe it for a second.
Anyone who would do this to their
mother (or friend) on Easter!

I'll be on my guard next
year! You can believe it!!
I'll be monitoring your emails
girls, whatever color you wear...
I'm wearing............

I didn't get the memo either! I wore pink, as did Sarah under that cute coat. But Emily must have whispered it to Kyle because he wore a blue shirt! Hmmmmm, I do sense a conspiracy!

Oh Becky Sweetie...
I was just giggling away this morning. You wore burgandy because you did not want to be "BLUE" on Easter, it was a Happy Time, a celebration. Ha! Ha! Ha! They only thought they had you fooled didn't they?

You look beautiful. What a pretty place to have a service. I love it. Thank you so much for sharing with me.

Well I leave on Friday morning for Maryland. I can't wait to see Marydon. A beautiful tea on Saturday and then a week with my Best Friend. What fun to be in your neck of the woods. I can't wait to see the beautiful scenery and history that awaits me there.

Counry hugs sweetie and much love, Sherry

Hello Dear Becky!

What a lovely post. The photos are beautiful, and little Sarah is a sweetheart and so cute in red.:o)

Love the SonRise Services, Becky. Burgandy is okay amongst the blue - hey it might be boring if everyone was the same. We had a church baby shower Sunday afternoon and there must have been a memo for everyone to wear a springy black/white. Thank goodness I must have gotten the memo! There were some there that actually had on COLORS! Can you believe it! I think they were just trying to stand out or something! ^_^

Such a cute post! All that blue is great, but the burgundy is very pretty, too. And it's always good to stand out from the crowd, right?
Happy Blue Monday from Joysweb

Hi Becky, It looks like it was a tad chilly Easter morning, but the service and friendly faces were warm. Happy Blue Monday.

Vee said...

Is there anything wrong with burgundy? Very sedate, mature color. Were you feeling sedate and mature? :D The moms were looking especially lovely on Easter as was everyone else.

Mary Bergfeld said...

It's always fun to start the day with a smile. You have a lovely family and it is wonderful to see the whole clan gathered for services. Have a fabulous Blue Monday. Blessings...Mary

There have been a good many times when I worked that several of us would wear the same colors. The one or two left out would say they didn't get the memo.

That's ok Becky!! I didn't wear my new stuff until yesterday. Purple skirt and light purple t. So I missed it by a week!

Blue Blue my world is blue,
blue is my world when I'm without you! (a song from the 60's)

What a beautiful, blue family! Y'all match!!
Sparkly Hugs,
Tobi and the pixies!

A beautiful family dressed in their blues. That was a great idea and you did a super job. That little Sarah is a precious little girl.

Melissa G said...

I'm sure you looked lovely in your burgundy next to all that blue!

Hi Becky, your post is just adorable. I am smiling BIG with all the blue and awesome photos. This SONrise was a precious gathering of friends and family and it was beautiful. Thank you for sharing such a sweet time you had on Easter.

Hugs, Jeanne

Lol, too funny. I loved all the photos though, even if you did miss the memo :-) Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my anniversary post, and tell your friend that his ministry in jails does make a difference. People who know Russ now, find it hard to believe he was ever that man. The power of God to change a person is miraculous. I'm so thankful that He changed my heart too.
