Happy Easter

Easter ended up being a quiet but nice affair this year. In the morning, I woke up to Gracie whispering in my ear if she could go find the eggs that the Easter Bunny had hidden. It was pretty early so I told her no and go back to sleep. About 20 minutes later, she asked again and of course my answer was still no. Finally, after a 3rd time, I felt sorry for her so I peeled my eyes open and after getting Kyle from his crib, we all rushed into the living room to see what the bunny had brought. This year, the bunny was a little stingy and only left a little bit of candy. Seeing in year's past, that the candy sat in the basket for a few weeks and then got thrown away, I guess that bunny has learned. Gracie was very happy with her princess bucket and sand toysand Kyle was happy with the candy.

After having some chocolate for breakfast, the kids, actually Gracie as Kyle was still chomping away, went off to find the eggs. This is Gracie's favorite part and she specifically requested that the bunny hide no eggs outside as the grass would be too wet. After the hunt, we went to church, with the kids on a sugar high and then Marie cooked a nice brunch for us. That would be Marie Callendars, the restaurant for those of you who don't have them in your state. The day ended with all of us stuffed full of good food, happiness and yummy chocolate.
