Addison's FIRST Easter
so i finally got to dress up a baby girl for Easter. i liked it. i think i will ALWAYS like it. :) i know Easter is not about what clothes we wear or how much candy we get or how many eggs we find. my kids know that too. it's important they know the REAL meaning of Easter is not what the Easter bunny brings that morning (or mom and dad in our house) but rather the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! what a glorious day we celebrate as Christians!!! He is ALIVE!
back to the dress part...there are so many fond memories i have of picking out an Easter dress and wearing a shawl, white gloves, white patten leather shoes, etc....when i was growing up. there is something really special about getting all dressed up on Easter...as a little girl. i loved dressing Addison up and i loved looking at all the little girls dressed up at church this year. i noticed them more this year than ever. Mommom sent the most beautiful dress for sweet Addison Grace and everyone thought she looked beautiful! us especially! :) her shoes are the best. we are loving those cute little things. they help her keep her socks on since she likes to take them off anyways and she gets so many compliments on them. :)
not feeling the photo shoot mom!
it was strange not having Harrison with us on Easter but he was with Mimi and Papa enjoying himself. we knew he was in good hands! i didn't get one picture of me on Easter. i guess that's how it goes as a mom.

Jackson was very proud! doesn't he look handsome! :)
