Easter Weekend

What a beautiful Easter weekend we had!! This year I organized the first ever Easter egg hunt for my neighborhood. We had 5 families show up and there 6 kids and 2 infants there...Bailey was the only girl! I was really pleased with the turn out, considering it was only announced via Facebook and the e-Newsletter I've started doing which goes out to about 20 different email addresses. Bailey did really well. Once we showed her the first egg and told her to put it in her basket she was like an old pro! She would get so excited with each egg that she found :)
Some of the other kiddos.
And we found a real birds egg!
After hunting for eggs I did some much needed shopping for Spring clothes...I had a great coupon for NY & Company and a gift card. Bailey got some new sandals and I hope to go shopping for her new Spring clothes this weekend.
I've mentioned before that we are not currently going to church anywhere. I loved our old church but there's a reason I don't want to go there anymore...so we've been trying to figure out where to go now. I like small traditional churches. I like knowing everyone there and singing hymns. I've tried bigger churches and I just didn't feel at home there. We had planned on trying out Faith Baptist (although I think it's now a non-denomination church??) Sunday morning but they only have one service and it's at 11:00. Bailey is still taking 2 naps a day and the first starts at 10:30 usually. We had planned on trying to get her to take 1 nap that day so we could go...but she started having a major melt down at about 10:00. I think it's a mixture of teething and she has crazy allergies. So needless to say we didn't end up going. I hoping to try again Sunday and see how it goes!
She loved her Easter basket! Her favorite things were the snacks and the new crayons.
That afternoon we played outside, it was so nice! Bailey looks so big in these pictures that it seriously makes me want to cry! Time is going sooooo fast!!!

You're so organized to plan a neighborhood egg hunt and an e-newsletter! Bailey looks like she had a blast (Colin loved hunting eggs too). She is getting really tall!
