Easter came to our house this weekend and was a lot of fun for all of us. Saturday night, the Easter Bunny came to visit and made a mess of things, spilling 2 boxes of Nerds candy all over the table near the Easter baskets. I hated the idea of the poor bunny cleaning up such a mess all on his own, so I pitched in and helped him by eating every last bit of the evidence I could find! Needless to say, I was a bit wound up! Some people scorn the power of nerds but they are one of my favorite candies (the Easter Bunny is so smart!) and always make me feel like a kid (moreso than usual!) I was up waaaay too late, but I felt great!
The kids actually slept in on Sunday and didn’t come downstairs until 7:30. They had colored eggs the day before with their grandparents, but Isaac and Abigail were very interested in their other baskets!
Their baskets from the Easter Bunny were incredibly full of sugary goodness and kid fuel (he didn’t spill all of the candy)! Buried in each basket was a new game for their Nintendo DSs. Normally, that is enough for them not to care about anything else, but they spied eggs hiddn throughout the living room and started another “feeding” frenzy. High and low they looked until they had cleared out the place!
Emily’s folks had gotten the kids some new Easter clothes so we all got gussied up and headed to church. We were terribly pretty as usual and looked so springy! I felt not unlike a cadbury egg, myself (having ingested 8 in a 24 hour period) as I let out a “cluck” or two.
We ate lunch at Emily’s aunt and uncle’s place where we had a heaping pile of food (protein was good as we desperately needed to counteract the sugar in me, mainly, but also the kids). For dessert, we had carrot cake which, at first, didn’t make sense to me until I thought about what bunnies eat…carrots! Ah…I get carrot cake now! Anyhow, we played croquet and hid more eggs and had a great time messing around in the beautiful sun!
