Happy Resurrection Sunday!!
And Happy Easter, too!
Yesterday we colored Easter eggs on the back porch. Of course, at the ripe old age of two, Miss Scarlett isn't into precision or color separation. In fact, she thought it was pretty cool to put the dye in her hair and across her face - ha!!
This morning we headed to church for the Easter Service. And afterwards, a delightful Easter breakfast at .... McDonald's (pretty much the only restaurant we can eat at these days, because Scarlett doesn't do well when she has to sit for any length of time. And sure enough, she was energetic and bouncing all over the place (literally) and Christian was loud (he has no idea how loud his voice is). Jonathan was amused, I was annoyed. But the good thing is that McDonald's was pretty slow (surely because 1) Lots of people were still at church and 2) people tend to go eat at Easter buffet's ... not at McDonald's.
We returned home, and Christian was upset because the Easter Bunny had still not arrived. I tried to explain that the Easter Bunny moves more slowly than Santa Clause because he has to hop everywhere, and Santa has a sleigh. :)
Auntie Liz was on our way over and I was able to sneak their Easter baskets and goodies to the back porch. So, we planned for her to arrive - and then Jonathan would sneak outside and hid our real eggs, because it was much-too-hot outside to leave the eggs out for any period of time.
So when she arrived, she told Jonathan that as she was driving into our neighborhood,, she saw a huge, white bunny hopping along and assumed it was the Easter Bunny. Oh boy, Christian was excited! He immediately headed out back and found their Easter Baskets and fun goodies.
