    The littlest one seems to have a personality to match the hair and bowtie. It's a great photo. Love it.

  3. oo what a beautiful bunch! love the hair dos!

  4. They are adorable! It's ok…I would be that kind of mother too…but my 10 year old has decided he has a say in these matters…maybe next time.

  5. Hahaha, that littlest one of yours looks completely adorable in his bow tie. He radiates naughtiness, priceless!

  18. Char @ Crap I've Made says:

    This is the bow tie pattern I used:

    This is the tie pattern:

    I find the tie pattern to be a bit long and make it a size or so shorter.

  19. Resweater says:

    LOVE this picture, and love the ties! You have beautiful kids :)

  20. Tam @ Sew Dang Cute says:

    Whatever! Everyone would want you as a mom. When I saw them today I thought they looked freaking ADORABLE!!!!! Way cute!

  21. The Gomes Family says:

    This is adorable!

  22. "Cottage By The Sea" says:

    My greatest regret is that my kids now ages 15, 16, 19, and 22 will no longer let me dress them in matching outfits. I ask every Christmas for them to make this wish come true but, so far, they just give me that (eye roll) dude you're so lame look. Whatev. Do it while you can.

  23. My mom did that to us WAY beyond it being cool :) I once *may* have made a Christmas outfit for the baby (we only had one then) with matching tie for my husband and a skirt with the same band of fabric for me once. *Maybe*

  24. I'm new to your blog…LOVE what I see. I am trying to learn to sew, I will be diving into your SWEET tutorials! :)

  25. bunnyhead says:

    Cutest thing ever!

  26. Sew It To Me says:

    That is adorable! Love the print and way they tied to her skirt!

  27. What a doll!

  28. do you think it's possible that someone could look like you and not be related whatsoever? cause i do believe your bennett and my nathan are pretty darn close!

    and mine only grows hair in the middle of his head ;)

  29. cutest thing ever! baby #2 is on the way at our house and Im totally like you and being THAT mother :) LOVE the cheesy cute matchiness!

  30. LOL!! it doesn't matter what part of the world you live in, huh??! it's a mom thing i guess! i've got 4, the oldest a 10 yr old boy and i've been mathcing them at easter too! i don't do it any other holiday. hmmm. this year, my son asked for ties for him and his 1 yr old brother! and of course the girls gotta match! my 2 oldest seem to like it the most!

  31. Easter match-up is a must. And if that's the worst thing you do, I'd say you're doing alright!

  32. Wes and Dani says:

    Haha I'm pretty sure my sisters and I had matching outfits until my older sister was about thirteen, and so far she hasn't needed therapy…wait, I take it back…she DID go to therapy! Ahhh! Haha. :)

  33. brown paper packages says:

    adorable, as always!! and I HAVE to have that bow tie…SO cute!

  34. Michelle says:

    the comment made me laugh so hard-I needed it too, he is a cutie!

  35. Nooooo – it's so flipping CUTE!!!! That bow tie is to die for.

  36. They all look so cute! Great colors for Spring!

    You haven't lived until you go to Easter services in identical dresses (very bright, large tulip print) with your mom, your aunt, and your grandmother. All 4 in the same exact dress.

  37. Courtney Price says:

    I just discovered your blog– I like your title and you're pretty darn hilarious :) Count me in.

  38. haha! love it!

  39. David and Jackie says:

    I love it. I was going to try to do something just like it for Easter. LOL

  40. I love it!!! I am new to your blog…found my way here by way of your split twirl skirt tutorial (which by the way I am going to make this weekend for my 9 month old). I have 3 boys (7,5,3) and a girl (the 9 month old)…oooh, they'd be SO cute if I made something similar for them :o) !!!

    I'll definitely be back!!! I linked your post about the skirt on my blog so I wouldn't forget it AND so others could check it out, too! Thanks!

  41. PeaceLoveApplesauce says:

    I too, am so THAT mom!
    I adore matching outfits!!
