Easter Joy!

e

Easter was a blast this year!  It is such a joy to celebrate the holidays with my Tay Tay!  Now that she is almost three, she really got the whole Easter Egg Hunt idea and had so much fun with it!  On Saturday, we went to two neighborhood’s egg hunts.  She enjoyed collecting eggs and most importantly, seeing what was in all of them!  On Sunday morning she got her basket full of fun stuff fit for a princess, and some candy of course. On our way to church that morning, Taylor asks me if I am the Easter Bunny!!  It was so random and funny!  I’m not big into the whole Easter Bunny tradition, so I told her I was – but of course she’ll keep getting Easter Baskets, plus I’m sure she’ll forget in time for next year.

I know what you’re thinking…. where did my baby go??!  It’s crazy to me how tall and mature she is getting!  She’s getting so independent now too. She doesn’t have to be glued to me every second now… just most of the time :)  I try to enjoy it though even when my patience is going because there’s going to come a day when she doesn’t want me to hold her… sniff sniff!

We go to a very casual church, so a casual sun dress for Easter is more than enough.  I got Tay’s dress off Etsy here.  I had a hard time choosing just one – all of the fabrics are so cute!  It’s just a basic pillow case dress that can grow with her as it get’s shorter.  The neck and arms are totally adjustable too.  She looked like a cute little Easter Egg in it! :)

And my dress was just a cheapie from Old Navy - $22 on sale, in fact!  I styled it with my ole faithful - jean jacket, which I feel goes with just about EVERYTHING and a silver necklace.

And, viola!  Here we are ready for church!

After church we headed to The Farm for the day.  The kids drove the golf cart around, played baseball, and cooked a big Easter dinner!  We even played a couple games of Bags.  Old Papa (92 years YOUNG) and Taylor even played!  Old Papa sure knew how to toss those bean bags!  It was impressive!

Mimi even got in on the game playing!  Look at that Frisbee throw!

Tay somehow lost her pants, but she remembered to take her Easter Basket everywhere she went!

Hope you all have a very Happy Easter!
