Easter Re-cap

Whew! I'm excuses...just plain ole bloggers block, it hit me like a bag of bricks this week, ya'll!

We were both feeling a bit puny on Saturday, but I assumed it was just something that would pass. We went about our Easter business...I gritted my teeth and stood back to let her dye her eggs all by herself....she did a great job, choosing different colors, plopping them in the dye and mixing and matching, she didn't quite "grasp" the concept of the fragility of eggs though...and we ended up with about four crushed ones.

Easter morning arrived bringing excessively sore throats and icky sinuses...poor Bella won't eat a thing. We had to forgo church and stay home since I was afraid we were contagious, not to mention she is a serious cranky crankenstien.

Friday afternoon we received a pleasant surprise from daddy! He sent his girls Godiva chocolates for Easter. For Isabella, a giant chocolate bunny, and for mommy a sizeable box of my favorite truffles! He does spoils us :) This will mark the third Easter in a row that we have not been able to be together...I have my fingers crossed for next year though!

Isabella was very excited to dig into her "bassit" and was immediately clawing at the cellophane :)

She was all about the giant bunny...until I took it out of the box, then apparently it transformed from a cheerful springtime treat to a dark and menacing creature from the wild...for when I placed it front of her, my toddler was instantly overcome with terror. I managed to catch this picture as she was fleeing for safety. Leave it to my child to go down as the first toddler in history to be absolutely terrified of a chocolate bunny.

I hope everyone had a blessed Easter!

Glad your back! Bella sure is concentrating on that egg dyeing business.

Too funny about the choc. bunny...well, not funny, actually. But a very strange reaction, indeed. 8-?

Stopping in from SITS. How lucky, a whole box of truffles to yourself. I had to raid the kids Easter baskets.

So glad you are back! What a funny girl, that's a first for me, I've never seen a child react like that to a bunny!!! She is a doll though, and so studious doing her eggs!!! I just think she is so sweet!!
