Happy Easter

Hobbit's basket
I hope you find yourself surround by friends and loved ones... and of course, chocolate.  I woke up to a sick Hobbit.  She apparently woke up around the same time Pokey does for work and came down to see if the Easter Bunny had come.  Excited about her basket, she hugged her daddy and charged back upstairs to her sister's room to wake her... then she charged back downstairs and promptly tossed her cookies.

So today is not shaping up well at all.  Hobbit is ill (complete with fever) and snuggled into the sofa watching Disney Channel.  Pokey is at work.  Peanut is still sleeping.  Minus the sick baby girl part, this is how I knew it would go... but somehow, with Hobbit being sick, it makes Easter infinitely more bleak.  A child being sick on a holiday is just no fun - for anyone.  I'm hoping that it's one of those moments where you fall ill but within a few hours you feel right as rain, you know?

Peanut's basket
The good news is that she loved her basket!  I really worked on my restraint this year and I'm proud of the results.  Each of the girls baskets has the exact same thing but they are each still unique to the them.  If they were sitting side by side without a word being said, you could pick out whose was whose.  So instead of baskets this year, they got reusable fabric bins.  I am tired of rebuying chintzy baskets each year so I went a different route - if it's going to be out all year anyway, I want it to be functional.  Inside, they will find a new dress, chocolate bunny, package of Robin's Eggs, package of Cadbury Creme Eggs, 3 Reece's Eggs, 3 Hershey's Marshmallow Eggs, one Russell Stover Coconut Creme Egg and an appropriate favorite colored Peep.  Pokey and I just got a cute plastic bucket with grass and eggs painted on it to hold our candy.  We didn't get much, just some Reece's Eggs (our favorite) and some Hershey's Marshmallow Eggs.  I was going to get us some Cadbury Eggs to split - he likes the chocolate and I love the inside - but decided we didn't need it... watching us split an egg gets funny faces from the kids.

I didn't get to work on my sock at all yesterday but that is what is on my agenda for today.  As soon as Peanut wakes up, I'm hoping in the shower to hose off and then set to work on my sock.  Wish me luck - I have to because not only do I have to have them ready for Peanut's suitcase, I don't want to let Andi down... but more on that later.

So Happy Easter everyone.  I hope that your day is infinitely better than mine - just be sure you don't get sick on all that candy... but if you do, there's room on the couch.  Grab a blanket and come on.

  1. Haha- you could never let me down. You are doing brilliantly!
    BTW those baskets are extra awesome. I love the idea of using a reusable container. You are one smart cookie Amers!
    Sorry Hobbit is sick- hope she feels better soon.
