Happy Wednesday! I know it has been since February that I published a blog post BUT lots of great stuff has been happening and while I had intentions to blog some that didn’t happen. I am happy to be back today with another collaboration with other mommy bloggers as we share with you a glimpse of our family photos for Easter (today is with just my girls, but I may have full family shots up sometime soon).
For this Easter we have already begun some egg hunts and may attend some more, as the kiddos love them. On Resurrection Sunday we will be attending church service and enjoy some coffee with doughnuts time that our church will be hosting before church as well as a complimentary family photo session with photographers. After church and some of the festivities the church will be hosting we will probably visit our family members and have Sunday meals, nothing too big.
For our outfits we choose florals since we are welcoming Spring and like to think of Easter and Spring as representing new life. My girls are wearing dresses given to them from their Nana (my mom), and as for me It’s tradition for me to buy a new outfit or dress to wear for Easter. This year I must have looked everywhere. I had a set budget and checked with a few Lularoe girls, Target, Old Navy, Marshalls and Goodwill until finally landing this dress at Ross for $18. This dress can easily be worn with a jacket over it and paired with flats or flip flops for summer.
I wish I had more photos to share with you but with kiddos it can be tough to get great ones.
Tell me, what have you been up to and how will you be spending your Easter?
See how the other mommy bloggers styled with their children for Easter:
“Our church has a special Resurrection service and is hosting a coffee and doughnut fellowship time along with family picture time (photographers will come to the church and photograph families). We will also be attending numerous egg hunts and a few family meals.”
“This is our first Easter as a family of four, so I was excited to have two little ones to coordinate this year. We got family pictures taken with my husband’s side of the family last weekend, so our outfits did double duty. Everyone wore denim and pastel colors for the pictures, so that worked out pretty perfectly for Easter as well. We are ready to go to Sunrise Easter service at our church, and then head home to see what the Easter Bunny brought!”
“Easter is such a special time. We’re so looking forward to fun baskets full of outdoor toys, egg hunts and a fun family BBQ. Most important of all, I love sharing the resurrection story with my boys and spending the morning in church!”
“For Easter Sunday we will be going to church and then Vivian will have an egg hunt in our front yard and later will open her basket of goodies to see what Easter Bunny brought her. We coordinated our pastels together. I am wearing a dove blue+white striped cold-shoulder ruffle dress while she has on a mint sundress and blush pink suede sneakers that match the blush pink dots of her white tights. Happy Easter Ladies!”
“This Easter, Aubrey and I will be wearing everything used! Missy A is wearing an outfit that was handed down to her by some sweet friends of ours whose daughter is a year older and have been so kind as to pass all her outgrown clothes on to us. She loves these baby doll style of shoes and gets really excited when she gets to wear them. You may recognize the dress I’m wearing from last year’s mommy & me collab! Since this year I have resolved to add nothing new to my closet, I’ll be sporting this casual favorite of mine in a new way as we celebrate the day with family.”
“The girls are rocking some one-shoulder seersucker dresses handmade by their grandmother. I’m wearing a coral Altar’d State dress from my closet that works well with the floral colors of their dress. We are really looking forward to spending time with family this Easter. And while we do participate in a few Easter egg hunts, I am trying my best to keep this holiday about Jesus. Happy Easter, everyone!”
“Although Easter is a casual holiday in my family, I do like to look put together. I love the idea of wearing whites, pastels, and florals for the holiday, so this year I’m going with a little white dress. To match my boys, I will be dressing them in my favorite white button down from the GAP, and finishing their outfit with jeans and sneakers. I want them to be comfortable since I know they will be running around outside all day, and hunting for Easter eggs, so dressing up their sneakers and jeans is a perfect solution.”
