Easter morning didn’t start off so well, even though we really built up the fact that the Easter Bunny had visited the night before. There was a lot of rolling around on the chair and whining—why, we have no idea.
Tucker, however, was quite intrigued with what the Easter Bunny left behind Sophie’s house.
Sophie’s mood greatly improved upon finding her basket full of Aglamesis Bro’s chocolate and a book—In My Meadow.
Gramma gave Sophie a very pretty Easter dress, which Sophie’s great aunt Susan made (check out her Fairy Godmother Originals Etsy shop!). Here Sophie is excitedly waiting by the front door for Nini and Pop Pop to arrive.
I love setting tables—always have. Setting this one was bittersweet. This weekend we put all our formal dining room furniture and fine china in storage, in our basement, to make room for toys, infant swings, a pack-n-play and a downstairs changing table—the chandelier still hangs, and the crystal wine glasses are still in the corner cabinet, so we laughingly call it the formal (although usually terribly messy) playroom.
Sophie must have had too much chocolate that morning. Because after dinner she got sick—all over her beautiful dress. So after a change of clothes (although she insisted the dress shoes stay on) she had some train time with Pop Pop.
Then, we colored eggs!
Next, outside to …
plant Easter flowers from Nini and Pop Pop and …
attempt to play baseball with Paw Paw and Pop Pop.
Finally, back inside to open one last birthday present from Aunt Katy and Uncle Tom—a box full of craft items, which has resulted in a very happy, marker tattooed little girl since she opened it.
A good, good day.

Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.” —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
