Easter Sunday

Happy Easter to you all! It was a fun weekend full of family, food, faith & stepping on lots of plastic Easter eggs.

I had so much fun with their Easter baskets this year. I bought new copper wire baskets for all three girls & couldn’t wait to fill them with goodies, a ballerina doll for Eloise & a fun little mouse in a box for Harper. They both got some more Tegu blocks, a festive sippy cup (that apparently leaks all over the place) & a new book to add to our growing library. We did our magic jelly beans the night before & Harper was so excited to go see them in the morning. We actually spilled some in the garage on our walk out to the yard since it was dark & the first thing Harper said when she woke up was “I hope the Easter bunny brought his broom to clean up all those magic jelly beans on the floor!” Somebody takes after her dad! πŸ˜‰ She loved the little lollipop garden, but Eloise may have loved it more. She was scooping them up as fast as she could & trying to fit them all in her mouth at once.

Harper got to participate in the kids portion of the Easter church service for the first time ever, it was adorable & she was so proud of herself. Afterwards, we came home to have brunch with our family & then have the girls do their egg hunt in our backyard. Harper was hopeful that there were m&ms in each egg & Eloise was pumped to see how much grass she could eat! We took yet another family picture, in the same spot every time, which has officially made me start tearing up as I look back on each holiday over the years and see how much our babies have grown. Or in many cases, how much my belly has grown. πŸ˜‰

Harper’s White Dress // Ribbon Hair Bow // Eloise’s Dress old from Baby Gap // Floral Tablecloth // Colored Bowls
We had dinner at my parents house & got to see my brothers and our five month old nephew. Always the best having family close by! I love that Harper is old enough now that we can teach her what Easter is all about, there’s nothing sweeter than hearing your babies talk about Jesus. 
Hope you all had a wonderful & blessed weekend with the ones you love!!

    At first I was going to comment on how you always find the most unique and adorable toys, then I saw their cute matching Easter jammies and could think of nothing else! Those are adorable! I love that you all always take pictures in the same spot, it's a gorgeous spot! I wish we had somewhere close to home with vines like that πŸ™‚

    Gorgeous girls, gorgeous mamma as usual! Can I just tell you how refreshing it is that your girls' Easter baskets were so "normal?" Unique items, age appropriate and adorable.. & small enough to fit in a basket. Is it just me or is everyone else trying to stuff their Easter baskets in rivalry of the presents under the Christmas tree?

    Emily I AGREE!! So many friends of mine post photos of kitchen tables SPREAD with giant gifts surrounding a basket filled as well. I felt like our little basket of books and candies was pathetic but then I rememebered what this holiday truly is about. And growing up? I didn't even get an Easter basket at ALL!

    We have the same sippy from Target for our daughter…I LOVE it! But yes, the leaking is so annoying! The Santa and reindeer ones we got her for Christmas leaked too. They're just gunna be "water only" cups for us I guess! Glad to hear your family had a lovely Easter. You look gorgeous in your family photo and oh so happy!! God Bless! -NG

    I love that Eloise's eyes are always on big sister, checking out what she's doing. Makes me excited for my daughter to have her baby sister come along in September! Hopefully they'll be best friends too!

    I finally stopped buying the cups like that after so many of them leaked.

    First… You look GORGEOUS. Second.. I love that you kept it simple with their baskets but still fun with the activities! Harper and my Emma would get along so well with their love of all things princess/tutus. Is that greenish cake plate vintage? I'm on the hunt to add one to my collection!

    Jessica, love following your family especially as I have a 9 month old girl. But what I appreciate the most is your talk of faith openly and the importance of teaching your girls the true meaning of Easter. My hubby and I decided to do some fun Easter bunny activities but also bought an adorable baby book teaching our girl why we really celebrate. Keep it coming:)

    I'm with you on those sippy cups…I got my son one a couple of years ago around Christmas. I wanted to buy another one this year but Target needs to step their game up in that department!

    Holy mother. I hate to be that girl, but where on earth did you find that gorgeous painting behind the girl's Easter baskets? It is EXACTLY what I have been searching for. I tried to look at previous posts to see if you mentioned it in the past with no dice. Care to share and help a sister out? πŸ™‚

    Hi Hannah – she linked to the cake stand on Harper's birthday party post, she got it from One Kings Lane. Unfortunately, it is no longer available on that website, but I did find it on Amazon. It's the mosser glass 10" Cake Plate, Jadeite. Hope this helps!

    I really don't think this can get any cuter! From their PJ's to your adorable pregnancy style, I was loving this post. Eloise is getting so big and such a beautiful little girl! Harper is going to be an expert big sister by the time No. 3 comes! Beautiful family. Thank you for sharing with us. (:
