The sugar high was intense. They had already eaten 47 pounds of sugar by 7:00 AM. Even though I only put ONE chocolate bunny in their baskets, they some how managed to find other amounts of sugar and consume. Oh well.
Easter is happiness to me. I love the colors, the hope, the joy, and the brightness it brings to all parts of our lives. My mom, Andrew, Maria, and offspring came in from out of town to spend the weekend with us. Maria called Thursday and blamed me for being insane wanting a house full of people the day before I was due. I told her they are the perfect company. They like to sit, eat, laugh, and talk. That is exactly what we did all weekend. We all went for a walk this evening and it was heaven strolling with our mounds of children watching them laugh, run, and roll around like puppies with each other.
The melt-downs by all children were record high, but were so humorous that I think we all looked forward to them. They were so irrational by the evening that it was awesome. So many fun times and good memories they will have!
I have to admit it. I am a good Easter bunny. My baskets every year are filled with such little treasures I look for all year and collect.
I only bought 4 dozen eggs to color and that was over in about 3 seconds. Note to next Easter self, buy more eggs.
Vianney did something crazy to herself Friday night. We were all sitting inside and the kids brought her in crying. The whole bottom part of her face was completely covered in blood and dirt. I still don't know what happened as nobody saw it, but I think she flipped off her swing to her face. I am glad I didn't see it. Her poor little face.
Tomorrow is D-Day! I said only 139 times today "I can't believe I am due tomorrow!" Crazy town. I've had no contractions. I usually start, go to the hospital, and have the new baby about 12 hours later. I have had two babies on their due date, one a week early, one a week late, and the other two were two days late.
