At 6:00 PM last night (the night before Easter), Linlee asked when we are going to dye eggs. Uh… That project had not been on my radar since I really do not enjoy it. If coloring Easter eggs is going to happen, it’s up to Rob – who blatantly forgot. But bless his heart, he stepped up and before the night was over, eggs were boiled and dyed. What an awesome daddy!Holly has been out-of-her-mind excited about Easter this year. Yesterday while waiting for Rob and Linlee in the car, Holly was chattering a hundred miles a minute with her cheek pressed right up next to mine (giving me zero space). I actually got a picture:
Trying to sleep last night was more of a challenge than even Christmas Eve. Although the girls had been firmly told that no grownup was getting up before 6:00, Holly was up at 2:00 and 5:00 and 5:50 crazy with excitement. Ugh. Its seems I’m often cranky Easter morning and I think I know why. And even though it is now several hours later in the morning, she is still acting as if she’s on speed. Oh, help us.Their baskets included new spring/summer pjs, bubbles, a stuffed animal (Linlee is into Angelina Ballerina and Holly is into kitties), a Fingerling toy, a headband and a chocolate bunny. And of course there was an egg hunt; their favorite.These are Fingerlings:They are little monkeys that sit on your finger and chatter and make kissy noises and open & close their eyes.
Next we are off for a big adventure into Seattle for the day. Happy Easter everyone!
