Spring is finally upon us as far as the actual calendar is concerned. This upcoming weekend is Easter Sunday for all Christians. We are truly not all that religious. Well, I was raised Catholic and did go to Catholic school and Kevin was raised Irish/Catholic going to church every weekend, but somehow together we are not the type to go to church every Sunday, but we do have our beliefs.
Our families did raise us to celebrate the major religious holidays and Easter is definitely high up on that list. With two little kids though, we have made more about the Easter Bunny and much less about religious aspects right now.
My girls, of course, have gotten easter baskets, treats and have even dressed up to celebrate the days with our families. So this being another Wednesday and featuring more flashback photos, I thought this week it was only appropriate to share with you some photos from past Easters with the girls. So sit back once again and enjoy!!
Above was the very first Easter that we celebrated with Emma. She wasn’t more than 9 months old at the time and couldn’t resist that flower laden hat, because Emma was pretty much bald and was also just too excited to dress her up from head to toe!! The basket picture was from her grandparents and couldn’t locate our basket pictures for some reason. And by the way, Lily was in the second picture, but was only weeks old (hint I was newly pregnant with her!!).
And then there were two. This was Emma’s second Easter and Lily’s first. “The Easter Bunny” had a field day with stuffing their baskets. And yes I still carried over the dress up theme for both girls now!!
Last year, I know I had separate pictures of each of the girls at some point, but for the most part the two were inseparable by this point and the pictures I had were of the two of them together were by far the best. And yes I started the trend last year of dressing them in the same exact dresses. So, I guess I played into the twins question a bit, but then again you can clearly see that Emma is a bit taller then Lily here. And the baskets were once again over flowing!!
Well, Happy almost Easter to all if you do celebrate. Have a wonderful holiday and be sure to check out my 1 Snap a Day Picture this Sunday, where I am sure to post up the latest Easter picture/s of the girls!! For more Easter fun filled activities, click here.
