For Easter Sunday, my kiddos looked like this in our front yard:
This one was taken at my aunt and uncle's house before they went for an egg hunt:
And I had so much fun looking for shirts for the boys and a dress or Sarah. The thing is, I finally found a store that had sizes which would have allowed Caleb and Gabriel to have identical shirts, and Sarah and baby girl could have had matching dresses (you know, when she arrives). But I just couldn't do it. I'm not sure why!
I love to color coordinate the family, but I just can't have them matching exactly. I usually find Sarah's dress first, and then I go off of those colors. She had pink, green, and white...so I found shirts for the boys with green and/or white in them.
Maybe it's because I read an article about this once, it particularly was speaking about twins and parents who always match them. I just found it to be interesting, the truth is each kid is so different (even non-twins) that I just like for them to have their own look...even if it may be color coordinated! :)
I do find it to be cute when I see matching kids, so don't be offended if your kids match and you're reading this! It's just that for my kiddos (just Caleb and Gabriel for now until baby girl gets here) I've never matched them exactly.
An entire, professional family picture may be different...I've thought of wearing all white shirts someday for an outside shot...not sure, though.
Maybe this non-matching thing is because my mom never matched me and my sister? Oh...thanks, mom, by the way! ;)
Do you match your kids, color coordinate, or neither?
