Easter Sunday was a fun day in our house. Madelyn must have known it was a special day, because she awoke at 5:30AM. AWESOME!
We decided to start our early day with her Easter basket.
Madelyn was extra excited about getting a basket this year. The week before she helped me pick out two baskets to give to our friend Cindy, who was collecting them to take to kids at the children's hospital.
So she was very excited to get one of her own.
She loved her Curious George socks (or as she calls him, Monkey George)
And her stickers
And Curious George notebook and pencil set
(sidenote: all Easter basket goodies, with the exception of her Veggie Tales DVD and Cabbage Patch doll, came from Target's $1 section. Score!)
Then (well, 3 or 4 hours later since she woke at the crack of dawn) it was time to get dressed for the most important part of the day, church.
After church Madelyn got to go on her first Easter egg hunt. It was very windy and a bit warm, but she had a blast! Definitely a fan of the egg hunt. When all was said and done she had enough candy to last us the rest of the year.
Easter was a special day for me, too.
After giving up sweets for Lent, it was finally time to enjoy some sugar! Not wanting to waste any time, I decided against making something from scratch.
But lets be honest, I could never make anything as wonderfully beautiful as this:
I sliced a piece that seemed to be a perfectly reasonable size...
And almost immediately went into a sugar coma.
Seriously, this thing is RICH. Especially for someone who hasn't ate sugar in a while.
However, it was it was completely worth it.
Happy (late) Easter!
