I should have been in bed long ago, but as usual the Easter Bunny didn’t have it together so I had to provide a little help. Actually, this year, Emily helped, too. She really enjoyed our one-on-one time together.
The buckets were lined up.
The three youngest had eggs in their “baskets” for the Easter Bunny to hide. I’d like to point out that they each picked their own colors and Lucas chose a purple bucket with the pink/purple eggs. Olivia choose green/blue and Emily didn’t care and took the orange/yellow that was left. I love that I’ve raised kids who are not afraid to express themselves. I also hate that they are way too opinionated when they shouldn’t be (to adults at school). It’s both a blessing and a curse.
Emily and I filled 119 eggs (one was broken) with all kinds of candy. Then she hid them all. :)
Then it was time for the Easter Bunny to fill the baskets. From right to left… Lucas, Olivia, Emily, Nick, Andrew and then Kevin and Devon who will be joining our family for dinner (they had to have baskets, too!) and last Dad’s gift.
My kids play by the Golden Rule….. as long as they “believe” in Santa and the Easter Bunny then they will get full stockings and baskets. Not a single one of them has ever expressed any disbelief or questioned it “realness”. They are smart like that! :)
The Easter Bunny brought Dad something, too. Three Made in Alaska beers. (Emily made the sign).
The name and suggestive photo cracked me up. It even says on the side “Never let a MORNING WOOD go to waste!”. Okay, my sense of humor is slightly off, but laughter is good for the soul. Can’t you just see the planning that went into this. There had to have been a lot of laughs in the board room.
Would you believe it is 2:32am??!! I really have to lay my head down. I sure wish I could still sleep half the day…. I miss snuggling down in the covers when I should be up. Getting older now…. I am wide awake even when I don’t want to be. Do still get to enjoy naps on occasion though and they are the best!
So far behind in the plant room is makes me sad. Maybe I’ll sneak in there tomorrow while the rest of the family freaks on their sugar high. I don’t know if I’m going to be able to keep up with it this year. I have to attend school with Elijah (my plant/clean house time) until we can get measures in place to deal with his out bursts (which is likely for next year). The only reason he is still in school is the fact that the principal really listened to Homer and I during our meeting Friday and she repects that we are doing everything we can (which requires me going back to high school...ug!). On a positive note, he’s doing awesome at baseball and the fact that it exhausts him is a good thing. Pray that he/we/me can keep it together for him to actually compete in and complete the season.
Hope you are enjoying the day wherever and however it works for you.
