Claire's First Easter!

I hope everyone had an amazing day yesterday celebrating with your family & friends!

We had a great first Easter as a little family. Very laid back & relaxing, just the way we like it. It would have helped it the weather would have been sunny & about 20 degrees warmer but, at least it didn't snow. BUT, my little sister came home from college for a few days, so that made everything better. {Hi, Al!}

We visited both sets of grandparents, ingested entirely too many calories & Claire totally hit the jackpot with new goodies. 

When it came to Claire's Easter basket from us, we hit a bump in the road, because I had ordered two things from Amazon last Tuesday to put in her basket which we haven't received yet. I know Amazon is so good about getting things shipped right away, so when I hadn't seen them on Friday, I tracked the package. It was in Salt Lake City {my town} on Thursday, but as of Friday, it was in COLORADO. Some how, UPS re-routed it back there & I won't get her things until Tuesday. Stupid UPS. 

So, we had to improvise. I picked up a couple of cheesy Nursery Rhyme Dvd's at Target & Ross, a little book in the dollar section at Target {love that place} & some bibs. Not too exciting, but whatev.

checking out her Easter basket from us

C & I

Her Elmo basket from Nana & Papa {my parents}

Mickey Mouse basket from Grandpa {hub's dad} 

AND she found the Peeps

Egg hunt with hub's little sis

She was SO done.

{In case you're wondering, I ordered her this & this for her Easter basket.}

I also searched high & low for some cute/affordable shoes to go with her dress. I was going to order some off of Etsy, but her little feet are SO FREAKING SKINNY, that I was too scared to order them without being able to try them on her first. Everything is always too wide.

We picked these up at Ross yesterday, they're Keds & they fit her so perfect. BUT, when I put them on with her Easter outfit, they were too clunky & didn't look right. So, she wore socks with her dress.

Womp. Womp. Womp. 

Besides the basket & shoe dilemma, it was a great day. & she looked totally adorable in her pillowcase dress.


  1. She looks so adorable, and I'm glad you had such a nice Easter!

    G's feet are super chunky so her Easter shoes didn't fit! I tried to wedge her foot in there for pictures and it was pretty funny. Ah well!

  2. She is soooooo stinkin' adorable! You look great Momma, love the pic of you 2 girls!

  3. Love her dress. Love your dress. You both look beautiful as always! And ummm... Gianna would so DIE to have that Sesame Street remote!

  4. I'm glad you had such a great Easter! That picture of you and Claire is too cute!!

  5. So cute! Let's just say we had a shoe fail too! I completely forgot to get Kaylynn some white shoes and I was going to run to Target yesterday morning..yeah Target was CLOSED! So, we had to go BACK home and get her brown sandals. BOO!! You girls looked adorable and looks like you had a fabulous Easter!
    Also, it's always SO fun when siblings come home from school!

  6. All these pictures are so cute! So happy you had a great day!

  7. Love her sweet dress- she was precious!

    And I LOVE your hair!

  8. LOVE that pillowcase dress and headband! she is just sooo stinking cute!!

  9. I can def tell in these pics that Claire has put on some weight! That is so wonderful that you don't have to worry about her eating anymore. Happy, healthy, cute baby!! :)

  10. adorable. Love the pic of the two of you. Your new hairstyle is looking fabulous if I do say so!

  11. Adorable! We have the opposite problem...Rylie's feet are too chunky. I can't find any shoes to fit. It's getting better now that she is thinning out some. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Oh my goodness, where to start? Your dress and pink cardigan, I love! And the little polka-dotted shoes are so adorable. I've never heard of Ross before...

  13. Aw. Happy first Easter, Claire! I looove those little shoes, too bad she didn't get to wear them.
