until next year... {Easter 2015}

Oh Easter weekend, I am sad to see you go! We had such a wonderful weekend celebrating Christ's resurrection and listening to LDS General Conference. Our bellies and hearts have never been more full as this was the perfect mix of being spiritually fed... as well as indulging in all the sugars ;)
Saturday was a good day as we accomplished a lot at home, worked out and played together as a family. My favorite part was getting together with our favorite friends and going to the Easter Pageant at the Mesa Temple that night. I definitely hope to go each year!


Easter morning was super exciting for Mia when we gave her her basket! Of course the first thing she discovered was her very own EOS chapstick (a last minute decision to buy and throw it in!) and she instantly start putting it on :) Then she moved on to her little princess tea party set and snacks that kept her busy all morning! Eric made us the most delicious breakfast of bacon, egg and spinach scramble and blueberry breakfast cake complete with milk and orange juice! Heaven, I tell ya! We enjoyed our food and Mia's new toys all while watching the morning session of conference and it was perfect. But do you know what made it even better?! Mia crashed by 11am! I can't remember the last time she went down for a nap that early!

This is as good as we could get with Mia's mouth full of candy, ha ha! Bless that man of mine for cheesing it big time, instead of scowling like normal!
We spent our Easter afternoon in Mesa being spoiled by my cousins and it was the BEST time! We had a delicious meal followed by the best Easter egg hunt, pictures and tons of playing! I am so happy we were able to spend this holiday with family and Mia could play with kids (with hardly any fighting- score!) We have felt so loved and blessed this Easter holiday! I am already looking forward to this time next year :)

An 11 am nap?! Jackpot! I miss naps =( Aria is officially out. Unless of course we go anywhere in the car at 5 and then she is out like a light. I loveee the tea set. Aria needs one!

Happy Easter! Your family picture is adorable! Glad you got to have so much fun with family and enjoy conference during Mia's nap :)

Laura Marie Keenan said...

She is so pretty I'm her Easter dress! And Liam is obsessed with thr EOS chapsticks too!

Jess Scott said...

Chapstick seems to be the #1 gift in Easter baskets! Cam loved his, too!! I can't believe she went down at 11...these holidays wear our kiddos out!! We put Cam down early (at noon) because I knew we'd have to wake him around 1:40, and he didn't even fuss. It was awesome! I'm so glad you had a great Easter!!

Sarah said...

What a great Easter! :) I love the family picture, mouth full of candy and all. I totally forgot to get a picture of the kids together, doh! Blogger/Mom fail!

Melissa @ i carry your heart said...

So funny, I (ahem, the easter bunny) gave my 4 year old daughter the exact same EOS lip balm, because she always wants to use mine! :)

Brittany @ Perpetually Daydreaming said...

Sounds like a great Easter weekend! How cute is her little tea set? And that's so funny that she got her own EOS lip balm. :) Hope you have a great start to your week lady!

Elizabeth Birenbaum said...

First of all, Mia's little bob - DYING. How cute is she!? I think she has had it for a while but this is when I really noticed. I'm glad you guys had such a good Easter! Mia looks like she killed it at the Easter egg hunt and it looks like she loved her chapstick too - a true girly girl!

Our Pretty Little Girls said...
