It seems like I've done a million posts about getting ready for Easter, but not Easter! Finally! I've been looking forward to doing Easter with LL this year since she's so much bigger. Remember last year? She was so tiny and oblivious to everything going on around her.
This year, I got to do the whole Easter basket, hunt for Easter eggs, cute dress for church, etc. It was so exciting! We had a long day at church - Sunrise service, breakfast, Life Enhancement, and then regular service. Whew! That's a long morning! We don't have evening service on Easter, so that made up for such a busy morning.
After the sunrise service and breakfast, I decided to take LL to Grammy's house to get some rest. This was right when she was fazing our her morning nap, so I was hoping that she might take one (she didn't). We drove back for church in time for the regular service.
After regular service, we went to Grammy and Pop's house for our big Easter lunch. It was Grammy, Pop, me, Matt, Lorelai, Uncle Bryan, and Aunt Missy. LL was alseep when we got there after church (she fell asleep in the car), but she woke up midway through lunch, so she didn't miss much. (super short nap....grrrr....) After lunch we let her open up her Easter basket (some eggs, a dress, some Easter bunny ears, and a big ball) and then we went outside to hunt Easter eggs.
She didn't *really* get the whole concept of hunting Easter eggs. Basically we drug her around to all the eggs, made a big deal of them, picked them up, and put them in the basket for her. She just really wasn't that in to it. She did carry a few of them around, but it was nothing spectacular. Hopefully next year will be better. We sure did have a fun day, though!
