Our Easter {Brooke's first}

This was only the second Easter my husband and I celebrated together!!
2008-my mom's house: we made pancakes.
2011-flew home from our amazing Caribbean cruise, and spent most of the day in an airplane from Puerto Rico.
2012-flew home from Charleston, SC

So this year, having our own little peanut, we figured our families would appreciate it us making the rounds with her.  {Because you know, once you have a baby, it's not about you any more, it's all about the little one}

I picked out miss Brooke's Easter dress awhile back and worried it wouldn't fit {3-6 months} but it did fit and perfectly!!

 She's so cute, as I tried to change her she kept flipping her dress up.  I just loved the simple details; the ruffles, the flowers, there was even a little bow on the back.   I had to put a little cardigan on her since it was in the 50's, but I was thankful that it was that warm!

I found my dress on Kiki La Rue--and it was a perfect compliment to Brooke's!! I wanted something with the same color, but not too matchy matchy.  I've been dying to dress alike!! I put my husband in a blue Banana Republic shirt; I love him in baby blue.  Makes his eyes pop!!
Our first family holiday photo!

Our first stop was about an hour away at my dad and step-mom's house.  They had brunch already to go when we arrived.  It was so nice to see them and my sister and her husband.

Each of us had a few Easter goodies on our plates.
We enjoyed a sausage and egg breakfast casserole, danishes, fruit salad...and I was starving I forgot pictures. Sorry!

We also had tea time.

My husband and I still goofy as ever.
It was such a nice time.  Then we were off to my in-laws....

I slacked on the pictures because they were taking some!!

Mama in law gave us a delicious lemon meringue pie, Brooke got some new Easter toys and an adorable outfit.  We stayed for a little bit, then it was off for the final round at Joey's grams' house.

Baby Brooke was beat!
There were a ton of people there and it was nice to catch up awhile, eat some yummy foods and show off our precious little bundle.  {People think she's 5 or 6 months old already!}

We had the happiest Easter yet.  I'm so blessed and thankful for everything in my life.  Despite this nasty cold I have working its way out of my system, it was so wonderful to see some of our family yesterday.

When we got home I put Brooke in her little "first Easter" onesie my step-mom picked up for her and did a mini photoshoot.
 Her new Easter gifts!
 Haha--I picked these ears up at the dollar section of Target.
 Of course, tummy time.

I hope your Easter Sunday was just as wonderful as ours.

    And Brooke is SUCH a cutie!! She reminds me a lot of my niece--my niece was HUGE as a baby, so chubby and roly-poly and adorable, but she lost a lot of it when she started crawling and running (yes, running always!!). Still has the cutest chipmunk cheeks ever, tho, and I love it!!

    I'm glad you had such a nice Easter :)
