We had a lovely Easter weekend with our friends Lisa and Andy in Virginia. We drove out Saturday morning and stayed through Easter lunch on Sunday. We dyed eggs, went on an egg hunt, let the kids run around and play, and had just a great time talking late into the night.
The kids loved their Easter baskets. But WHY oh WHY do we parents torture ourselves with these things? I don't mean the preparation; I'm mean the aftermath. I think we all know what I'm talking about: "mom, I WANT CANDY!" I limited the candy to a box of Peeps and 5 Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, but still. Ha! Next year, no candy. I end up eating it all anyway.
The girls made it for about an hour through church, but then they'd had it! I don't think they are getting it yet. Today on our way home from school, she told me that Jesus turned into an Easter bunny. Oh my, Harper. I can't wait for her to finally start Sunday school this year!
