Our Easter Sunday was off to a really quick start when I woke up to the sound of Jace coughing over the monitor. I wondered why it was so light before 6… turns out it was 6:48, the time we were supposed to be leaving the house for church! I was very thankful to have taken the time to gather everything together the night before! 20 minutes later and we were out the door (I did my makeup in the car). The only thing we forgot were Jace’s shoes (which we’d been up late searching for one of the night before).
We had three really nice services at church (Nolan and I enjoyed attending one of them together!) and it was so fun to see all the little kids in their Sunday best. I do have to say, though, I think Jace was the cutest one there!
After church we headed to lunch at Marie Callenders with Rayanna and Jared. Jace ended the lunch by walking around the restaurant yelling happy noises at everyone.
I loved having a coordinated little family! I made my Easter dress this year (I tell you about it on my craft blog here), and then our friend Mary went shopping with me and bought Jace’s little outfit. It has stripes that match my dress. And Nolan got a new white polo. This was the little Easter family I’ve always dreamed of!
Jace is really good at telling us when he wants to leave. He points toward a door, waves bye-bye, points again, and then starts grunting.

Jace’s Easter basket—eggs from a basket Mary got him (that he discovered earlier in the week), a magnadoodle for our upcoming trip to Maryland, a toothbrush and fruit snacks (his absolute favorite).

SO excited about the fruit snacks!
I love this picture.
He knew exactly what to do with his toothbrush—even though he’s never had his teeth brushed with a normal one. I’ve had a baby one up until now that is a little rubber thing that goes over my finger. He has watched me very closely, though, when I brush my teeth!
Later he had fun playing in his room which included standing on his chair with blankie…
…playing in his kitchen…
…and taking clothes out of his dresser.
We had a great Easter and hope you did too!
