Easter 2015:

Alleluia! The Lord is Risen! 
The Lord is Risen indeed, Alleluia! 


We really had an amazing and relaxing Easter weekend as a family. I had been so nervous as to what weather Newport was going to bring for Easter. I was just praying for at least 50 degrees and sunny (it is so sad that we think 50 is warm now.) Thankfully it was in fact a beautiful morning (a tad windy at times, but none the less beautiful)

We did all of our little Easter traditions...

We dye Easter Eggs the day before...

Crew didn't partake in this but he was watching big sis paint the eggs as he stuffed his face with puffs and mum mums! Once the eggs dried he got to view the finished product though! 

*And I may be bias, but Charli is AMAZINGLY talented!! 

The Easter Bunny hops on by the night before:

*Charli's Basket: Band-Aids, Hair brush, Bunny Ears Headband, Jellycat Bunny (that she has named Bunny Ballerina), "lipstick" (chapstick), nail polish, Jammies, Swim Suite & Cover Up, Books, and of course a few pieces of candy!

*Crew's Basket: Jellycat stuffed Whale (which big sis named Taley the Whaley), Shorts, Osh Kosh palm tree overalls, teether, first toothbrush, Books
*The fur babies were also not left out! They got a new stuffed bunny toy!

*Not shown: The Easter Bunny even brought Steven a Hobbes (as in Calvin and Hobbes) Stuffed Tiger (and my hubby was so excited about it too.)

Charli was so excited Easter morning and couldn't wait to see what the Easter bunny had left! We had the perfect Easter morning, just the 4 of us! Opening baskets, hunting eggs, and sitting down as a family for a small breakfast!

After lots of fun and of course eating every jelly bean Charli could find, we headed to our friends house for a small Easter Brunch! She did an absolutely beautiful job setting everything up and it was truly a wonderful time spent with some of our friends! We laughed, joked, ate, drank mimosas, and then let the kids run around outside to hunt more eggs!! 

We headed over to another friends house for another little Easter get together before heading home and spending the rest of the day as a family! We ended our Easter with the perfect Easter dinner; ham, homemade mac-n-cheese, and green beans. And after putting the kiddos to bed Steven and I snuggled on the couch and watched Into The Woods (we loved it.) 

Crew's First Easter was a success! 

I have enjoyed seeing all of the Easter pictures out there and hope everyone had a blessed day and weekend! 


  1. Charli and Crew are just TOO cute! I'm glad that y'all had a nice Easter! It looks like a lot of fun! I'll be thinking about you this week!

  2. That pic of Crew looking at the dyed Easter egg just slayed me. He is too cute! I saw that your mom arrived in Newport- we will be keeping you in our prayers if this is the big week!!

  3. Love all the pics! So was Crew sitting on Charli's lap in a chair? I still don't think I'd trust that Drew wouldn't let go of Ady and she drop to the ground!!
