    Easter Day Recap

    We were successfully visited by the Bunny. He delivered many a sweet treat for the children.

    Mom may have snuck some, too. He also delivered cute matchy matchy dresses for the girls.


    Here are the girls opening their baskets. Do you love Gretta's 'do?


    And here's Miss Gigi showing me an extreme close up of her new bunny. She says "Ooh ooh, Aah aah", like it's a monkey. Whatever. It's soft and fluffy, what does she care that it's not her toy monkey?

    We were treated to a special choir program at church, for which we were 20 minutes late due to dad ironing his new shirt and pants. After church we had linner (lunch/dinner, get it?) at our friends house. Ribs with Au Gratin potatoes and rolls. Very Eastery. I made a yummy cool whip and pineapple angel food cake recipe that was featured in this months Kraft Foods magazine/mailer. Very delish.

    Pretty much a regular Easter Sunday, except this was the first "real" Holiday spent away from our families. It's definitely a strange feeling being away from "home". It's not like homesickness like in college or girls' camp, it's more than that and less than that all at the same time. I enjoy having my little family traditions started, but I miss the chaos that is "Grandma's house". I guess it just makes the memories that much sweeter. Sniff sniff.

    Our kids sure missed you. It wasn't quite the same having an Easter egg hunt with only three kids.

    Let me try that again, your girls LOOK darling. Hey I needed to ask you, where did Sean get the cord wrapper things around all your cords by your computer. I sit here and stare at my mess of cords, and yours looked so nice. Let me know.

    Oh, thanks gals! Yeah, it was weird here for Easter. It was just like a regular Sunday. Aren't those dresses darling? I made the girls those cute T shirt dresses for Easter, but we were at the outlets on Saturday, and Sean fell in love with these matchy ones from Nautica Kids. If I had spent $200 on kids dresses, I would get a lecture, but since it was his idea, it's fine. Silly.

    Jill- Sean found the cord cover thingies at Lowes I think. They're used to cover cords hanging down from plasma TV's and such. He just used my Dremel to cut it to size. Hope that helps!

    Cute Dresses! I especially like the hats. Hats need to come back.

    Kelli's right, it isn't the same with only three kids, except I think Nunn forgot there were only three kids. I still had to hide HUGE quantities of every kind of chocolate Easter candy known to man.

    Cute little girls! I remember those days of dressing up and matching everyone. I am so impressed that you had a place to go for dinner already. It's only been like two months. It took me longer than that to get any invites in Iowa. That is really great, though. I remember when we were in Iowa, it was soooooooooo hard to be away from family and friends. Your dad was our Bishop while we were back and forth. I will always remember what he told me "be patient, Larissa, be patient." Thank goodness for the church. It was easy to make friends and you become surrogate families for each other. The homesickness is very different. It's hard to explain.

    The girls look very cute in their Easter outfits. I know the feeling of not having family around for the holidays, but we just have to make it work and start our own traditions. That is the fun part. I am glad that you guys had a wonderful Easter.

    The girls are so pretty in their dresses! I am so proud of you for having a non-extended-family-holiday!
