Emerson's First Easter

I know I'm a little late on this but we just got the pictures back from the Easter egg hunt a few days ago and I don't want to forget to to document our sweet girl's first Easter.

The Spring Fling was held at the Embassy on Saturday. Even though it was pretty hot that day, I really wanted to dress Emerson up in her fancy little Easter dress from Mimi. Of course, I didn't manage to get one picture of the three of us together!

We started with a visit from the Easter bunny. Emerson has been a little leery of strangers lately so I was worried that she might be scared of the big bunny, but she absolutely loved him! She kept looking at him and then looking over at me and trying to do the sign for bunny. It was so sweet.
After our visit, it was time for the egg hunt.  Emerson wasn't walking yet so we held her hands and led her to an egg. As soon as she spotted it, she said down and grabbed it. There was no more egg hunt after that. We threw one more egg in her basket just for good measure before heading over and having a few snacks.
On Easter day, we were excited to find that one of our sweet neighbors had left a little Easter surprise for Emerson. She was so excited when we opened the door and she saw this:
Since Sunday is the beginning of the work week, Jesse had to go to work so Emerson and spent the day playing and of course we had to make Emerson's first Easter craft. I love the way it turned out.
That evening we had some of our neighbors (and great friends) over for barbecue. The kids played while we ate and talked. Emerson just loves our neighborhood kids so she was thoroughly entertained watching them play.

After everyone left I had to get in one more snuggle with my sweet girl before bedtime.
I couldn't have asked for a better last "first holiday" for Emerson!
