Easter 2012

Today is Easter.  Son Number One woke up at the crack of dawn.  He was excited about hunting Easter eggs.  He was impressed with his Easter basket, even though the bunny was a bit "cheap" this year.  Darn the recession, affecting even the Easter bunny! Son Number One did not notice though!

Once all the kids were awake, we dressed them all in blue, and we tried to snap a kid photo on the stairs.  This is how it turned out, classic for years to come I'm sure:

I knew the day was going to be rough, because Son Number One stayed up most of the night, excited for the Easter bunny, and Son Number Two spent the night in our bed again.  The only one who had sleep was Darling Daughter, but with the amount of chocolate she ate first thing in the morning, we were well aware a sugar low would be coming on in the afternoon.

We went to Grace Church for the annual Easter Egg Hunt.  Son Number Two found the golden egg in the little kid section, and Son Number One was upset about that and cried, but moved on shortly.

I snapped a few wonderful photos of the kids there, including a photo that made my heart hurt because Son Number One is looking so old!

After the hunt, Son Number One went to church with my parents, my brother, sister-in-law and nieces and nephews.  Hubby and I went home and put the little ones down for a little nap before lunch.  Once they awoke, we went to my Mom's house and had dinner.  Eggplant parmesan (yummy!) with salad and bread.  Not a traditional Easter dinner, but great nonetheless.

When we came home, Son Number One was in full meltdown mode.  He finally fell asleep in the recliner, and I moved him into his bed a little before seven.  Son Number Two actually fell asleep in the car on the way home, and napped until 5, so he didn't go to bed until 8. 

The whole day seemed to fly by.  I can't believe Easter is almost over, and now time to plan for Son Number Two's birthday. He'll be four in ten days.  I can't believe it.

  1. You have such precious kiddos! I had forgotten our boys are the same ages! (My younger one just turned four last week.)
