Whether you celebrate Easter, Jesus' Resurrection, passover, or the arrival of spring I hope you enjoyed the holiday with family, friends, and good food. ( I may have stolen this word from word from a facebook status update, but it certainly is the best way to describe the weekend!) We sure did! It was filled with fun activities such as Guinness Book of World Records Cloth Diaper Change event, Easter dinner, etc and lots of lazy down time. I finished reading a lovely book which makes 4 in the last two weeks. We met our neighbors next door who have kiddos. I think the wife's family is from Jamica and all the kids were hanging out in the street! What FUN! Abby tried so hard to keep up with the dozen 8+ year olds. Her Easter dress tripped her up a few times, but she hung in there.
Speaking of dresses, she looked adorable with her little dress and lime green sweater. Her MiMi picked it out and it was ADORABLE! Perfect for a spring day. And wouldn't you know I don't have any pictures of her in it. I know a million were taken, but none with my camera. I'll have to hunt those down.
We celebrated Easter by checking out the Easter Bunny's loot, a beautiful service at church, and dinner at Aunt Marie's. Here are a few pictures from the Easter Bunny's visit!
The Easter Bunny left a trail of eggs from Abby's bedroom all the way to the living room and oh so cleverly along the way. She understood the concept right away and began collecting and making a pile. So found out very soon all the treats in the eggs! Cheerios, raisins, goldfish, and coins were soon eaten or put in her piggy bank.
She loved tearing apart her basket! The chocolate malt balls were obviously for Momma and Daddy and the smaller candy pieces she gobbled up quickly.
Easter dinner was a FEAST! Most of my aunts, uncles, and cousins on my Mom's side were present, so it was a full house in Falmouth. The food was fabulous, company grand, and Abby loved, loved, loved, running around with everyone. She really enjoys playing with older kids and can keep up with them pretty well. She is very comfortable with herself and surroundings and went to town zipping through the legs of adults and giving lots of big hugs and kisses. Pictures to come!
We had such a joyous day! As we celebrated Jesus' Resurrection we are reminded of the hope and optimism in all of life's challenges and experiences.
