The Easter Bunny Came Early

to our house! Last night the infamous bunny hopped across our living room hiding eggs and treats everywhere! Connor woke up every other hour asking if Easter had arrived yet. He decided it would be easy if he just slept in the chair next to my bed. We finally climbed out of bed and headed right to the fun. He had so much fun searching for the eggs and opening his gifts. He was truly amazed at how well the Easter Bunny knew him. She knew all his favorite colors, cars and even knew that he preferred a white bunny. She bought him all of his favorite games and treats. We also bought him the bowling set which he just LOVES! We set it up and away he went. IT was a terrific morning. Connor was truly appreciative of everything and did not whine for more. He has been doing that a lot lately and was pleasantly surprised that things went so well.

For us Easter celebrations started yesterday. My parents came over with treats for Connor. My Dad bought him a Foose model car and let me tell you, its a real chick magnet. ;) I know, I have a crazy sense of humor. lol I thought it was SUPER DUPER FUNNY THOUGH!

After we opened presents today, we decided to head out to breakfast at McDonald's with Sean's sister. It was a fun time! Except I later found out that Connor had eaten 3 hash browns by himself. Amazingly, he didnt get sick. He ate his own, then he ate most of mine AND when I wasnt looking he took Sean's. Now I know to watch him more carefully when we are there. McDonald's is bad enough.

When we had finished eating we headed to Connor's Dad's house to drop him off for the remainder of the weekend. We stayed to visit for awhile and Connor was extremely happy to find out that the Easter Bunny would visit again tonight. There are advantages of having two set of parents you know. ;)

Heading out later to my parent's house for supper was the most relaxing part of our day. So much so that I began to feel sleepy and laid on the couch. I put my camera down on the table next to my father and he immediately started playing. I must say he has really improved over the last few months. He actually can turn the camera on and take pictures all by himself now. He only needed help getting the flash up. He took some photos of mye laying on the couch and complained that my eyes were closed. Well, I was resting! lol Oh and the dog, he took pictures of the dog. Shalako doesnt enjoy having his photo taken these days. Doesnt he look so happy??

On the way home it started to snow. It is super cold out and I hope that we dont get any more!!! I have had enough snow. I want spring to hop on over to the East coast! You would think that my sweet friends down south would share some of the wealth!! ;) You know who you are!!! Greedy heat keepers! ;)
I sure do hope that everyone else is having a splendid Easter holiday as well!! Best wishes to you and yours.

Love the chick magnet - LOL!!!!

And I won't bother to tell you that I was wringing wet with sweat after spending the afternoon outside trimming trees and cutting down stray trees that had gotten started in the flower beds.
