Silly Easter bunny . . .

This phrase is heard a lot at the house these days-as Josie continues to find eggs in random places. I sing in my church choir and Holy Week is pretty crazy for us-therefore I got a lot of extra babysitting help from Grandma and Great-grandpa Joe.

Since Josie was going to Grandma's on Saturday and staying overnight I decided the Easter bunny would make an early visit. So-Saturday morning Josie woke up to a basket in her crib (yes-she's still in a crib . . . .more on that at another time). She didn't see it right away due to the fact she woke up at 5:30am and it was still dark in her room. Then she hid her eyes when I turned on the light (Bright light! Bright light!). So-finally I asked her,"What's that?" and pointed to it. She thought it was all pretty cool-though she's still finding easter basket grass in her bed (silly Easter bunny!).

I had filled a bunch of plastic eggs with jellybeans and M&Ms and hid them in places I knew she'd stumble upon them. I didn't tell her to look for them-I just let her find them. The first one she found was in a bag of leftover popcorn from the night before. Yes-I let her eat leftover popcorn in the morning . . . .is it much different than Corn Flakes? Anyway-she got sooo excited! Until she tried the jellybeans inside. She spit it out. Thankfully-she gave me enough notice for me to get a napkin. So-she's excited to find the eggs-but really excited when they're the ones with M&Ms in them. Mama gets the jellybeans.

Then-at a chilly (but mostly dry) 9am we joined her daycare buddies at a park for the daycare's Easter Egg hunt. Josie didn't get it at first-she wouldn't hold her own bucket and couldn't understand why she was being asked to clean up the lawn. She was more excited about the Easter bunny-who made her friend cry- and all the balloons. And the playground-which we stayed on until I almost froze to death . . .

Sunday was Easter dinner at my mom and dad's-Josie was ready for the hunt (indoors) this time. She did so well she had to get a second bucket.

Julie, she is really growing and turning more and more beautiful. You got some really great shots of her. That dress is so nice.
Funny about the grass still in her crib, I always hated that green stuff!!

I love the photos - she is getting so big and even more beautiful. Don't worry about the crib - Mattix is still in his. And he will be until he realizes he can totally scale the side and jump ship. I have no idea why my avid little climber hasn't figured it out yet, but I'm not complaining. He can sleep in there until he's six for all I care! At the rate he's growing, he'll totally fit.

Great photos! Chloe wouldn't hold her bucket either. Sounds like a good Easter for the monkey!

And keep her in that crib as long as you can!

Love Josie's Easter Dress -- it's so beautiful and she looks so beautiful in it. I can't believe they look so grown up.

I espically like the one with her tongue sticking out.
