our first easter as a family!


so. funny story. chas and i totally thought last sunday was easter until about 4pm that day. 

i had made deviled eggs at midnight the night before, we got dressed up for church extra fancy, were surprised when no one mentioned easter during church, called chas' mom to tell him we were on our way for dinner, and were confused why his mom said she had forgotten we were coming and that she didn't really have anything prepared for dinner except for maybe some grilled cheese sandwiches. ... when we called my mom to ask if we could come to dinner because the thought of grilled cheese on easter was kinda depressing and we had our deviled eggs all ready to go and share with everyone... that's when we were finally clued in. 

"ummm...today's not easter, sam." 

oh. 

we had a good laugh about it and decided it was just "preaster." 

so today is easter! and we look even more easter-y than we did last week (on preaster)!

we took these family pictures outside our house after church to document our first easter together as a family. sometimes hero gets in a really great mood when we pull the camera out and, happily, today was one of those times. i mean, just look at her face in all these shots! sorry for the overload of pics but there's no way i could decide which ones to leave out of the post. so just ignore us and look at those sweet, sweet cheeks! 

love her and love my little easter sunday funday family!

Haha that story is hilarious. And I love how happy she is in all of these! I notice you aren't really into the big huge frilly bow/flower headbands...understated is still cute and girly and easter-y :)

Ok that is hilarious! I hope you didn't have to make the eggs all over again because they're a royal pain in the you-know-where ...

those pictures are DARLING! Hero is one cute baby, and she has the prettiest eye shape! They look so happy and alive :)

The same thing happened to me. I had to remind myself several times it wasn't Easter. Oops! That's what happens when you have night church service instead of morning!

I love how old Hero looks in her smile. Like she has control over how gleeful she looks and was trying to act shy. She's such a cutie!

Hahaha that is SO funny! Glad you guys had a good preaster AND Easter! I'd say Christ rising definitely deserves two celebrations :)
