We got up and got Natalie dressed in her Easter outfit right away and let her dig into her basket. Her dress is from Zara that I bought last Winter when it was on sale and it's so stinking cute I can't stand it. The sweater she was going to wear for the day was in the basket, so don't worry we didn't leave her in a sleeveless dress :)
She had fun opening all of the eggs, even though there wasn't anything too extremely exciting in any of them. She did really like the gummy bunnies, her new Elmo Easter book and the light up rings! Oh, and she loves the shoes... I'm happy.
We played a little bit with her Alex lacing toys, but they are pretty hard for her. She loves to look at all of the "treats" that came with it though. She can spot a heart a mile away and there is a heart on a couple of the wooden treats. She yelled ''heart!'' and it took me a minute to even find it. She's so stinking adorable, really hilarious and a pretty big smarty pants (only bragging a little bit...).
My lovely ''oooh you got socks!'' face.
She was obsessed with touching my teeth for a while...
After church, Michael went out and hid a few eggs and she got to run around the yard and find them. It was pretty cute. It will be really fun next year when she's a little more into it, but she definitely knew that we were looking for eggs and would say ''egg'' whenever we'd point her towards one. She did good putting them in her basket too.
Her post church outfit... I can't get over how cute she is... Even with her wild hair.
Then she took a nap and we relaxed for a little bit then I made an early Easter dinner that turned out pretty delicious, thank goodness...
We didn't go all out like this last year, so it was fun for me to get to cook for us all (even though Natalie hardly ate, of course... we'll try again later) and go to church and really celebrate. And I was so excited for her to open her basket and look for eggs today.
Next year will be even more fun with another little girl here to enjoy it with!
