Charli thought looking for eggs was the funniest thing EVER today!! She woke up to a trail of eggs from her bedroom door to the living room, and walked around until she had all 26 of them in her basket! Sadly, some were plastic and some were real eggs...but all got thrown in the basket the same!! The Easter Bunny was very good to her this year! She got a doll house, and several animals. At the end of the day, the animals were living in her dollhouse - is anyone surprised?!
We went to church and Charli did really well I think! If the service was about ten minutes shorter I think she would have been perfect!!!! After church we went to the farm and she immediately started to find eggs with her cousins! They had fun!! After lunch the kids had an outdoor egg hunt too...it was cold out, but the kids enjoyed it anyway!!
When we got home Charli was having fun playing with her basket and toys that she got earlier that day, and all of a sudden I looked out the window - and the Easter Bunny Fairy came again and scattered eggs all over our front yard!! OH MY GOSH!! We bundled Charli up and took her outside! As soon as she saw the first egg in the grass she freaked out! I have never heard her scream so long and so much in my life!! She was on cloud 9! There were a few people walking by, she locked eyes when them and hollered to them as if she was telling them how much fun they were missing out on!! Many eggs later Charli came inside a very happy girl. It made my week to see her enjoy the day so much! Easter will always be one of those "tough" holidays, because I will forever remember the feeling of being stuck at home last year as Charli started her fight against NB. But, it will also remind me of how far we have come...and remind me to be so thankful.
We hope that all of you had a great Easter, and were able to spend it with the ones you love...and truly thought of the meaning of Easter.
PS. In the spirit of Easter I was thinking about forgiveness and new beginnings. I read somewhere this week that rather than getting upset at someone and wanting revenge we should pray for them to find healing in whatever it is that is making them act the way that they do. I think we can all use this piece of advise...I hope to be better at applying it.
notice the chicken in the tub?!!!!!!
I decided NOT to look at the camera while I looked so cute!
Happy Easter 2008!!
Look at my eggs daddy!!
PS - this weekend I decided that I wanted to feed myself almost every meal! By doing this, that meant that I ate my breakfast one cheerio at a time - mom was so patient and let me do it anyway!!! I am growing up mom says! She keeps asking me where the kid is who she fed watered down baby cereal to in her car seat. Yuck, I hope she wasn't talking about me!!
