Easter Morning

For those who know my children well, it will be of little surprise that they woke up on Easter Sunday before the birds. The almost woke up before the bunny. Owen was jumping around my bed at 5:30am, saying "He was here!! I see eggs!!!"

To which his grumpy mother replies "She. The Easter Bunny is a girl. Boys don't lay eggs."

Come to think of it, I wonder if that is what started Owen's new fascination with the birds and the bees?? I'll post about that later, but I will say that I am as ill-prepared for that talk as I was to wake up at 5:30 on Easter morning.

I think I managed to keep Owen quiet until 5:33 when he woke everyone else up. At that point, sleep was futile.

Honestly, for me, the whole "Easter morning" thing is uneventful. It took the children less than 20 minutes to find all 250 eggs, and probably another 5 minutes to eat all the candy. I made a lovely country breakfast, complete with sausage gravy and biscuits (welcome to the South!!!), but everyone was full from the candy.

Owen and the little girls look forward to dressing up. After this day, I had to retire Owen's Miami Vice shirt once and for all. I have to admit, that shirt has given me quite a few chuckles. But, it's now missing multiple buttons AND his tummy stick out (especially after eating 11 pounds of candy).

I ended up getting some cute pictures of CoCo before she got dirty.

Ginger is wearing the same dress that she wore for Thanksgiving. Only now, it's several inches too short. She doesn't care - it's pink with frills.

And, Maddie would not come outside for Easter pictures. It had something to do with a bee. And the fact that she "did not have a dress." Maybe next year.
