easter sunday.

happy easter! (yesterday.) hope you had a beautiful easter sunday with your loved ones. here are a few photos from our day together below:


^^^ it was chilly out but not too chilly so mama went ahead and ditched her tights for the day (also code for I SHAVED MY LEGS!) and so in like-mother-like-daughter fashion, eleanor ditched her tights, too.^^^


^^^we gave samson a big head start on the easter egg hunt sunday morning and he surprised us by finding ALL the eggs in record time! but in eleanor’s defense, she mostly just wanted to play with things in her easter basket, which may have helped samson.^^^


^^^play-doh in E’s easter basket. which of course meant there was an impromptu tea party (see below) before opening any of the containers up and actually playing with the play-doh. ^^^


^^^…and bubbles!^^^


^^^this little guy and his suspenders. i cannot get enough.^^^



^^^while samson napped, eleanor helped papa make his colorful pancakes (a tradition we began last year) for our easter breakfast.^^^

^^^thanks to somebody’s tiny chubby toddler hands getting dye happy, they were a lot brighter than last years pretty pastel ones, but they were so so delicious! ^^^


^^^i stole one of eleanor’s hair clips so we could both wear purple flowers in our hair and be all matchy matchy. then we gave some eskimo kisses before heading off to church!^^^


^^^we went to church to celebrate Jesus Christ, the real reason behind the Easter holiday.^^^

^^^our little ham!^^^

^^^the littles enjoyed a round 2 of checking out their easter stash and playing together after church before naps.^^^



^^^we enjoyed a beautiful easter dinner with friends in harlem who really know how to make the most of easter decor.^^^

happy easter!!

    I am jealous of E’s and Samson’s clothes! They are the CUTEST! Wish they came in adult sizes for me, yes, even the little suspenders! :) So adorable.

  2. Oh heavens! That one with Samson and his dad cheek to cheek is too much! So adorable!

  3. anilyn

  6. Kara

    ohh myy! baby suspenders! is anything cuter?

  7. What a beautiful and colorful Easter! You did a great job documenting this special day. Any way you could share resources for all the beautiful clothing your family was wearing??

  8. Chelsea

    Your babes and family are just so darling! And the decor at your friend’s home is styled perfectly! Looks like the perfect Easter with your family!

    Would you and Josh kindly post the recipe for those pancakes? I’d love to try making them myself!

  10. I am in love with all the brightness and springy feel of these photos! Adorable. Looks like a beautiful holiday. Eleanor’s shoes are ridiculously cute and your friends sure know how to throw a party. Makes my Easter decor feel awfully lacking!! ha!

    Oh…ya, JSYK..
    your family is lovely and I adore your blog.


  15. So precious… seeing Eleanor’s little Play-Dough tea party makes me believe in the magic that little children have; that sense of pure joy and beauty in everyday things.

  16. Jackie

    Eleanor’s shoes are the cutest! I wish they came in my size.

  17. Lori Bertosa

    Just beautiful!

  18. Rose

    Perfection! Love it all! xo

    Your photos are always so colorful, beautiful and uplifting. And those pancakes…brilliant idea!! Happy Easter!

  20. wait wait why aren’t the bubbles in star shape??

  21. I am seriously in LOVE with your adorable home! It is so open and bright! I am so jealous.

    Okay… and seriously.. Eleanor’s little Easter dress.. ADORABLE! She has got to be the cutest dressed toddler I’ve seen! As well as snazzy little Samson.

    Your family is just too darn cute.



  22. Louise

    This easter I´ve realized, that these days would be much brighter with children. In our family we have no more little ones & I am 22 & feel much too young to be a good mum. But when I see your pictures from easter my heart melts. You are such a beautiful & perfect little family. And it seems that your kids are the happiest kids in the world. You are a fantastic mum. I hope I am able to be also such a great mother in a few years!

  23. I absolutely adore your home, Naomi! It’s so bright and open and it makes for such fabulous pictures!

    And seriously, Eleanor’s Easter dress… I just cannot handle all that cuteness. She has to be one of the most stylish little toddlers I’ve ever seen. And then there is snazzy little Samson with those dapper little suspenders.

    Too much cuteness. Too. Much.


  24. Such an adorable idea with the pancakes! Love your blog!

  25. yvi

    i really like your pics.
    seams you had a great time!
    your kids are so adorable…and they’re always happy…
    you must be very happy too.

  26. omg what adorable pictures! Happy Easter!

  27. Kenzie

    Hi Naomi!
    I have been following your blog for years and have always adored Eleanora little hair clips. I have a little girl on the way and have been searching everywhere for tiny ones like hers. Where did you find hers? Thanks! What a lovely Easter you shared with your family.

  28. Such a lovely bright and colourful Easter xx

  29. Marco Toledo

    I have question. How do you do to teach your children about God and everything? Because for me it’s very important to teach them about that and the values they need to have as they are growing up.
    Have a nice day! :)

  30. Dalia

    Love E’s yellow/mustard shoes! Soooo cute!
    & Samson’s smile on the pic with his daddy..
    You have a handsome family!

  31. we had the same Easter basket as E! And your friends really took Easter decor to a different level – LOVE the celebration!

  32. I simply adore this post. I love the reminder of why we celebrate Easter. I love all of the vibrant color you shared. I love your sweet family. Thanks for posting this!

  33. Morgan

    We had so much fun celebrating Easter (and Passover) with the kids this year too! http://happilyeverpresent.net/

  37. angela

    You are probably way too busy to answer to all these comments, but I really want to know where you shop for your kids. I love E’s dress, actually I love them all.

  38. alex

    I love everything about this!! I would love to know where E’s yellow bow shoes and purple flower clips are from! I would love to have them for my own little :)

  39. Chinta

    These pics are just so precious. I love how you always beautifully capture the moments of your lovely family. ..and Samson’s outfit is just too cute!

    I don’t mean to be a total copycat but I have been trying to find something similar for my son for his first birthday party (he’s just a few weeks after Samson :))..but haven’t been successful. If you don’t mind, can you please share where you got it from? I would really appreciate it. THANK YOU.

    Keep on rocking!

    My little babyboy (15 month) has exactly the same suspender shorts. Zara, I guess? :o) Crazy that we wear the same things all over the world…

  45. I would love to share the recipe for those amazing pancakes on my own blog! Would you care to share the recipe, please?

  46. Tina

    Your Easter looks like it was so much fun! But also, when did Marcel the Shell with Shoes On become a book?!

    I wish you could get Eleanor’s in adult sizes. So sweet!

  54. Looks like a wonderful time for everyone! Love the idea of Easter coloured pancakes. I have a feeling those may will be making an appearance at my house someday! Thanks for sharing. You have a lovely family.

  55. Lettie

    So incredibly beautiful… all of it! :)

  56. Dani

    I love this easter day! The color added to the pancakes is such a great idea and makes the morning feel special (even if it may be really easy to do!) Love love love.
