I woke up at one point Easter morning and was just so excited to see Anabelle with her Easter basket that I wanted to wake her up, but then I told myself that I better not take this last hour or two of sleep for granted and I waited for her to wake me up… Yeah, it’s official. I have definitely grown out of the kid phase and into the parenthood phase of Easter mornings. Kevin and I discussed what kind of traditions we want to start as a family! This is our first year celebrating as a family of three, so what do we want this day to be like year after year?! Of course we have Sunday morning Easter Mass, but do we do the Easter basket in our pj’s or do we wait till we are all dressed pretty for church? You know there will always be lots of photos so I wanted to stick to being church ready, but this whole parenthood phase is just too exciting and I couldn’t want to wait to see Anabelle with her basket! Needless to say, we did NOT get dressed first…
Kevin and I didn’t want to get carried away with the Easter bunny, we wanted simple and fun, but also special, not stressful. I had been eying this adorable little Spring Chicken from this online children’s boutique and knew that it would make the perfect gift from the Easter bunny for little Anabelle! And it did. It perfectly pulled together our little Anabelle-sized basket with such whimsy!
Buuuut of course she found the plastic eggs more interesting… That candy inside just made the perfect rattle! (The candy was really for me, but she thoroughly enjoys licking every piece. I get lots of baby slobber now-a-days…) And can you believe that she wore those bunny ears all day?! I thought for sure she would rip them off, but she absolutely loved them!
Now Anabelle hasn’t quite figured out how to play with stuffed animals (“Mom, they don’t make any noise!”) but isn’t this little Spring Chicken the prettiest of its coop?! Smitten for the Wee Generation is an online children’s boutique started by Kerrie, a mother of two. Kerrie simply wanted to bring back the magic and whimsy of childhood in this fast paced, high tech, over stressed world, and she does this by finding the most beautiful and unique toys. She is attracted to anything that encourages discovery and imagination. I mean shouldn’t we all unplug a little more often and reimagine the world with our little ones?!
Today, I have partnered up with Smitten for the Wee Generation to give away one of these beautiful Spring Chicks! Its too late for this little hen to make it into your little one’s Easter basket, but that doesn’t mean this pretty little girl wouldn’t be the perfect little addition to your house this Spring! To enter, follow Smitten for the Wee Generation on Instagram and facebook as well as follow me on Instagram and facebook! Verify your entries below! Giveaway ends 4/25!

I hope Anabelle learns to play with stuffed animals soon, because I would love to add this little Bambi to the mix too! But for now I will just pretend the chick is flying as I toss her in the air and watch Anabelle fall into a fit of giggles!
How was your Easter morning?!
