Our First Family Easter

Easter has always been an important holiday growing up. Like Christmas, there are the secular traditions and the non-secular ones; my family celebrated both. We had the Easter egg hunts and Easter baskets but still kept the focus as a religious holiday by going to all the services Holy Week had to offer.

Now that I'm the parent, I find myself really getting into the spirit of the holidays. I had so much too much fun getting Charlotte's Easter basket together and picking out her sweet little Easter dress. I have a feeling Christmas is going to be dangerous! 

Since Charlotte is so young for her first Easter, I just put things I was going to buy or had already purchased in her basket so it didn't feel like another expense. I put bottles, an Easter rattle that I got last year after Easter for just $.98, a Vera Bradly blanket that a friend gave me, an outfit and a headband and shoes set that I had ordered a while back on GroopDealz.

As you can see, she LOVED her Easter basket! 

 From my family to yours, I hope you had a wonderful Easter however you chose to celebrate!
