Easter 2013

{This post is late but I'm trying to get back into regular blogging because I'm just not ever going to be a scrapbooker!}

This year we had a really low key Easter. I tend to be on the high expressive side and have big expectations for holidays, not necessarily in a bad way but just like them to be fun and festive. My in-laws that live in town like to basically just get together and eat, no decorations or anything. It's not a bad thing, just different temperaments celebrate differently. :) I've learned to try to let go of expectations and enjoy my children and family but man, it's tough sometimes. I'm excited for my parents to move back into town so we have more variety with holidays. :)

Because we love celebrating Easter morning at church, we usually do one little present before we go to church and then the *Easter Bunny* comes while we are gone.Or she runs out of the car ahead of the kids when we get home from church and gets the Easter baskets out. ;) My kids aren't morning people (nor are their parents) so this is a much better way to celebrate for us versus cramming all the fun into an early morning.

My Emersyn looked so darling. I had bought this dress a few months ago on clearance at Marshalls and it was a little dressier than most of her dresses, it has a few layers under it that make it puffier. Anyways, I thought it would make a cute Easter dress and sure enough, it did! I loved the little purse it came with too. I have yet to spend more than $20 on a holiday dress for her, period. Mama likes to bargain shop. This dress was $7 and it's a great brand and quality.  Everett looked darling too! We had a beautiful warm Easter so he was able to wear a polo and shorts. Too cute.

It was special that we got to spend Easter with the kids Great Grandpa Jensen and great Grandma Stanton!

I am so so thankful for my husband and two children that make holidays so special and fun!
