Easter 2014

It was a great Easter weekend at our house!

We kicked things off with Mass on Thursday and Friday. I was a little nervous about taking Lillian to the long services, but she did great. We only had one little mishap. She decided to rip the cover off a song book right in front of our priest. Ughhhh. So embarrassing.

On Saturday we did some chores around the house and then dyed Easter eggs!! Our neighbors and a few other friends came over to join in on the fun. I was sooo excited to start an egg dying tradition with Lillian. Well, she decided to take a 3 hour nap that afternoon (which has NEVER happened) and missed everything. As such, I only got one picture of her after we were done. Whomp whomp.

On Sunday morning we woke up, gave Lillian her Easter basket, headed to Mass, and then to our friends’ house for Easter brunch. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… it’s so nice to have the friends we have here. We’ve shared lots of holidays/birthdays/milestones together. If we can’t be with family, they’re definitely the next best thing.

I had so much fun putting together Lillian’s first Easter basket. I ordered her a basket and an embroidered liner from Pottery Barn. Her basket included a stuffed deer doll, a sippy cup and snack containers, two books, a pair of shorts, and eggs stuffed with hair bows and candy (for Blake and I). I think everything was a hit. She’s been carrying the eggs around and banging them together all week. We’ve read the books multiple times already. She loves snuggling the doll. Success!

Is it just me or does she look like a 3 year old in that last picture?

I hope everyone had a great Easter!! Many thanks to all that sent Lillian a special little Easter treat. We really appreciate it!

Lots of love,

    Awww! So great to read about your Easter weekend! Glad to hear you were able to spend it with some special friends. It looks like LILLIAN enjoyed her basket of goodies. Luv her Easter dress and bonnet! She looks so cute in the picture where she is looking directly at her Easter basket. So grown up already! Can’t wait to see you at Hannah’s wedding! Hugs and kisses!
