Our Easter

Hope you all had the very best Easter weekend with your sweet families!!  I'm so excited to share some pictures from our holiday, despite a few challenges, we had the sweetest Easter, having two little girls to celebrate with was truly twice the fun.

We ended up at urgent care with Avalon on Saturday, she spiked a really high fever & it turns out, one of her ears was badly infected.  This was her second ear infection in the last few weeks, we felt so bad for her, especially since she is such a happy baby regardless that it's hard to tell when she is sick.  Thankfully the medicine worked quickly, she was still congested Easter morning but her temperature was back to normal and she was excited as ever to see her Easter treats.  Waverly was so sweet with her, helping show her everything the bunny brought her and being extra gentle and caring.

Side note, did anyone else's toddler go to bed extra early Saturday night so that the Easter bunny would come?!  Waverly hadn't been to bed that early in months, she was very serious about it & insisted she go straight to bed.  I'm trying to think of a way we can make this work in our favor other nights too?! ;)


We did bring the bunny bagels back out this year, and Waverly loved them more than ever!!!  She is really into "boys & girls" right now, so she loved that we had both.  Making food fun just keeps getting better and better the older she gets.

Our weather was pretty much horrible, rain for most of the day & way too cold for our Easter standards, but we made the most of it!  We snuck outside when we were able to and opted for an egg hunt inside rather than out at our brother & sister in-laws.  We hosted my side of the family for a delicious dinner and a second round of Easter baskets.  Avalon was extra snuggly and Waverly just loved every little part of celebrating.  When I finally put her down at the end of the night she said, "Mommy, bunny days are the best.  When is the next holiday?".

And just for fun, a look back at last year's Easter.  I can't believe how much Waverly has grown or how much smaller I have gotten. ;)  Or how that was sweet little Avalon Elle in there.

Wishing you all a very happy week ahead! XO

  8. The weather was yucky here too, but we still had a good time! It's always fun to spoil your kids on special days and holidays. I can't believe Easter is already over for another year. Loving all the cute touches you are so good to include for every holiday, Mama. Those bunny bagels are the cutest and your table decor is on point. So glad you and your beautiful family had a good Easter, and hoping Avalon is back to 100% now - ear infections are no fun!
