A Happy Easter

We had such a nice Easter yesterday. We hope you all did too! After going to church, we settled in for a nice afternoon of needed relaxation and family time. (Jim said it was kind of the "calm before the storm" next week.)

Anna Lee got to open her Easter bunny presents after her nap, since she woke up too late to do it in the morning. Before she went down for her nap, we told her that the Easter bunny was going to come while she was asleep and bring her presents. She looked very concerned and said, "I don't want to see him and I don't want to talk to him." No problem.

This year, I decided it really wasn't worth the hassle of dying eggs. Maybe we should have done it, but I felt like I would have had a huge mess on my hands...with very little reward. Instead, I found a Princess egg decorating kit. It was a hit. Anna Lee and I spent a good amount of time on Saturday night putting princess stickers and crowns all over eggs. Who needs to dye eggs when you have Sleeping Beauty and Belle???

After the Easter egg hunt was canceled at our church yesterday because of weather, we had our own in the backyard. Anna Lee was just as happy. She worked so hard to find all of the eggs Jim had hidden around the yard. She really didn't understand what to do last year, so it was fun to see her enjoy this yesterday.

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!
