Easter 2008

We had a nice day yesterday, although Don was sick and not at 100%. After church we shared Easter dinner with the Brown family--a special tradition. When I went into her room at 7:45 to wake her up, I asked, "Do you know what day it is today?" She usually answers, "Sunday." Yesterday she answered, "Easter." Lindy was quite excited to find out the Easter Bunny had come to visit. She didn't seem to notice the cool pink vacuum he left because she was too concerned with the candy. By the end of the day I was tired from telling her, "No, you can't have any more candy..." She is not very good at letting "no" be the end of the conversation. RELENTLESS, that one!

She had fun hunting eggs in the Brown's backyard and even more fun eating the M & Ms.

Here are some pictures of the day...

Lisa,

Just precious! I have to say...felt a little pang of jealousy that you had to go into her room TO WAKE HER UP at 7:45! I, too, fought a losing battle with nutrition yesterday...I have my own little relentless candy monger!

Lindy looks so sweet and happy! I hope Don is feeling better soon!

oh sorry daddy wasn't well.

I know about perseverance! Caitln is also relentless, on and on and on, not giving up. I just let them have it... stuff themselves and then its gone... I like Lynn's idea! Fruit!

Lindy looks beautiful in her dress! Sounds like she had a fun day. We're having candy issues here too. I'm about ready to hide it all. :)

I hope Don is feeling better.

Thanks for sharing all the pictures. She looks so happy with all of her goodies from the Easter Bunny. At least the candy holidays are done until Halloween, aren't they?? Thankfully.
