This morning the girls got to look at their baskets before we went to 7 am mass. I told them that they could as long as they got changed into the dress clothes before coming downstairs.
They showed me what the Easter bunny left them. I think their favorite thing was either the giant chocolate bunny or the Barbie water toy that they played with for an hour in the bath tub later that day (talk about prune fingers.)
Victoria has been very proud of herself for getting ready in the morning. She brushes her own hair and loves to wear a little "lipstick" (chap stick tinted pink) on the weekends. They both had on beautiful Easter dresses (Victoria's dresses from last year-but she really hasn't grown, so...), however it had stormed the night before and there was rain in the forecast, so they wore their pink galoshes and boots to church with their dresses- I wish I had gotten a picture, but we were running late.
During church another round of storms came and we had to make a run for it to the car. We still got drenched even with an umbrella, so the girls changed into play clothes. We invited Dan, Darcy, Kate, Abby, Carol, and Dick to our house after church for breakfast.
I created an Easter egg scavenger hunt for the kids. They took turns reading the clues to the next of ten eggs. (i.e- a place that's 32 degrees, or a mouse that is not chased by a cat, or a place where you put letters.) The last clue led to an Easter egg filled with chocolates for each of the girls. I think they had fun, but I also think they had fun just jumping on the trampoline and collecting "fairy shells" (snail shells) in the backyard, while the adults got to chat.
After a very long bath (and playing) the girls changed into their Easter pajamas, ate some super, then got to take a crack at their giant bunnies.
a very good Easter
