Easter 2010

On Easter morning I was surprised at how much of our training stuck with the kids. Not only did they not venture downstairs until Lisa and I were awake, they made sure they were reasonably attired - knowing full well I'd be snapping photos. :)

Much of their Easter baskets were filled courtesy of a great clearance sale at a craft store. We went there for ?? and instead bumped into a score of $.50 and $1.00 items that were perfect for the kids.

Here's Smiley's

Why scotch tape? Because the kid LOVES tape. Lisa often says he'd marry the stuff if it was legal.

Here's LuLu's:

And YaYa's basket, and her PopRocks coated tongue:

We then got gussied up and headed out to church, where Ginger was less than perfect (but also less than awful) and then returned home to visit with Lisa's Dad, who dropped off extra baskets for the kids.

Later we all went to my Mom's for dinner, where my kids behaved horrifically. That's what I get for juicing the kids up with sugar and candy and then skipping naptime. Live and learn.

Even so, overall it was a very nice, very sedate Easter. I hope yours went just as well, if not better.

We had a very nice day. The kids look wonderful!

We actually got very little for the kid's Easter baskets this year. They each got a DVD, a new outfit, and a stuffed animal. In prior years, they got way too much. We're trying to be a bit more frugal.

And, of course, if it were up to me, the kids would get Ostara baskets instead. But Doug insists we celebrate Easter, even though he's agnostic. Go figure.

Anyway...glad you had a nice holiday!
