Annalee's First Easter

Miss Annalee certainly let her light shine this weekend. She was full of joy, love and lots of laughter!
Our little one was showered with baskets, goodies and lots gifts this weekend. Quite possibly more than at Christmas - which is pretty cool. I do love Christmas, don't get me wrong - but I also love the Easter season and I think it's one of the best holidays to celebrate. So glad our friends and family think so as well. Thank you to everyone for all the goodies!

After soaking up a few days with family last week, we had a wonderful low-key weekend with friends.

Friday afternoon J had some college friends traveling through town, so they came over around 5 for cocktails on the porch and a little shrimp dinner that night. We enjoyed catching up with them and having a lazy start to the Easter weekend.

Our Saturday was nice. We did a little baking for Easter Sunday, finished chores, went for a long walk and did a little work in the yard. The Braddick's invited us over in the afternoon to see their new house - gorgeous - and a little play date for the gals... which included a few cold bevs for the parents as well. The girls are just a couple months apart and are finally at an age where they can play well together. It was so fun watching them.
Can't wait for many more tea parties on the porch!

Easter Sunday we got up early and headed to 8 am mass, after some bunny cinnamon rolls, of course.

We went early so we could scoot out of town for Easter brunch with the Hollomon/Wellford fam. I'm glad we did - it was packed. I can't imagine how full 10:30 was. We did squeeze in a little time to check out what the Easter Bunny had brought us before leaving town. I love my little egg plate and eggs from "the bunny." He must know how much I love Easter decor! Nailed it. 

I'll have to recap Annalee's Easter basket soon - it was filled with so many goodies. I loved how into all of them she was too.

We had a great afternoon in Charlottesville! The meal was delicious - ham biscuits, shrimp salad, strawberry-spinach-goat cheese salad, fruit salad, pasta and chicken salad, deviled eggs and carrot cake for dessert. We ate well! The company was even better. Such a relaxing and fun Easter Sunday. Kiddos make the holidays much more special indeed.

Our little bunny was up late... enjoying her banana toothbrush. 

Hope your Easter was just as special.
