Bunny Day!

Lots of pictures for today so I'll keep the text to a minimum....I think.

Our Spring Break was stupendous with the girls. Brad and I had such a wonderful time with them here and certainly didn't want to take them home when the time came. This is the longest we've ever had them at one time and it went beautifully. Now it seems very lonely without them. We had them for Easter and that was fantastic as well! This Saturday we went to Grandma and Grandpa Arnold's house and attended an Easter Egg Hunt at the church. Then we came home to their house and dyed eggs as well! It was a very, very full day with a lot of laughs for the kids and a lot of Tylenol for the adults. And this weekend taught me many things, such as:
  • It doesn't matter if the Easter Bunny brings nice things, a 4 year old will still be scared of him and request that he not come into the house while she is sleeping.
  • There is always room for chocolate chip cookies at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
  • Easter egg dye will not come out of your clothes.
  • Easter toys have a life-cycle of about 20 minutes; if you're lucky.

Thankfully the Easter Bunny knew what was good for him on Sunday and brought the girls new earrings to wear. Though they were a bit nervous about taking the old earrings out, we managed to convince them to trust us. So, the earrings are changed, the ears aren't sore - we are in business.

Still no van. We're waiting for a leaky glass panel to be fixed and then it will be ours! I called the salesman that sold us the van today and he said he'll be calling to check on the status of the replacement panel today. He'd better hurry up, right now we only have one car!

Hope you all had a great Easter weekend and the Easter Bunny was good to you!

Thank you so much for sharing your Easter day in photos with us.

Kids keep you young when you are with them and make you feel old when the day is done...that's my experience anyway!
