Yes, we had Easter, too!

Let me tell you how the "Easter Bunny" does it at our house...

As most of you know Mr. Jackson is quite the busy body. I figured our years ago that if left to his own devices, he would devour his entire easter basket while I lay dreaming in bed. Because of this, when Jackson wakes he finds a plate where the Easter Bunny left the remainder of his carrot and an egg with a clue in it. Since Jackson can't read yet we have to help him by reading it aloud. This clue leads him to a series of eggs, eventually leading to where his basket has been hidden. This year the final location was in my bedroom, beside the dresser. It appears Mr. Bunny might not have thought out that spot too well. Although it was lovey to be able to watch the boys go through their baskets from the comfort of my bed, I'm not convinced it was worth all the time I spent washing the chocolate out of the sheets. Pretty messy!

This year was Andrew's second Easter, and the first he could enjoy with his big brother. He isn't normally allowed candy so it was really fun watching him grab for those jelly beans like he had discovered the best food ever! He actually laughed while eating them :) That afternoon we ate tons of yummy food at my grandparent's house. We played some board games - you can guess who won (What? You mean me? That's right!). All in all it was a wonderful day!

I'm glad you had a great Easter! My Dad would do up clues for us too --- we were so excited Easter Morning! He even did it for us when we were Senior's in High School! Watch out, they may love up those clues and you'll be stuck!
