This year was Nora's first Easter. She missed last year by about a month. We had a nice, low key kind of day. When Nora woke up, I brought her into our bedroom to open her Easter basket. Those pictures aren't the best quality because we had just woken up and I hadn't even had my coffee yet (gasp). Don't worry- she didn't eat any of the Peeps, those were more for decoration, and for Mommy and Daddy. We got Nora some new bath toys and a Lambie stuffed animal. Any other Doc McStuffins fans out there? I'm fairly certain "Time For Your Checkup" is Nora's favorite song.
After we all got dressed we took a family picture -oh yes I dyed my hair purple! - and headed over to my parents' house for Easter lunch. While we were there I had Nora try out my old rocking horse. She was a little skeptical at first but she warmed up to it. My mom and dad got Nora the cutest dress, which I forgot to take a picture of, and a little bunny tree ornament inside a plastic egg. That egg was her favorite toy all day. She kept shaking it to hear the ornament rattle around.
After lunch we headed back to Connecticut for a little family time before putting Nora to bed. All in all it was a nice day. Sometimes it's good to take a break from crazy holiday activities and just spend them with the people you love.
