Easter 2007

Our first Easter with Lindy was a blur last year since we had just gotten home from China. This year we had the privilege of spending the day with the Brown family. Ever since we've lived in Texas, we've spent many Easter Sundays with the Browns. Don and I have sweet memories of hiding eggs for Erin and Emily to hunt in the back yard. Now Erin is 18 and about to graduate high school and Emily is 14 and will begin high school in the fall. So, it was eggstra (sorry couldn't resist) special for us to see the girls hide eggs for Lindy to hunt.

The weather was cold and drizzly so Lindy didn't get to wear the dress we had picked out for her but that's okay we resorted to a plan C for warmth. We also resorted to hiding eggs inside. We hadn't prepped Lindy at all about the Easter bunny or looking for eggs but boy did she ever catch on quickly. We handed her the basket and she just started picking them up instantly and putting them in her basket. She even pointed to the hard to reach ones and found just about every one of them.

As you can see, the poor child doesn't get any attention! It was a fun day for us and we feel so grateful to have special friends who have "adopted" us and treat us like family.
