Easter Happenings

Well, after such an adventurous day on Friday, we all slept in on Saturday ahhhh. This does not happen very often in our house so we were very thankful! Once we did get up, Isabelle wanted to play dress up and dance with daddy

She loves her heels
 All of a sudden there was a knock at the door and it was the mailman with another package for Isabelle! This time it was from Mamaw and Papaw.

Isabelle always loves to get mail and she was so excited about the contents of the package. She of course had to get right into the painting :)

I took this time to get myself cleaned up to head off for some last mintue Easter shopping and by some I mean all of it :) After several hours of shopping and waiting in line after line, I finally made it back home! I threw in a pizza and Isabelle enjoyed hers while watching The Wizard of Oz on TV!

After dinner, our friend Jodi joined us and we were in full on egg coloring mode!

It was by now, past Isabelles bedtime so we picked out some nice Easter stories to read before bed

Isabelle was off to bed but the Easter Bunny worked well into the night on several tasks, from filling eggs, hiding them, putting together a bike, making hairbow for next day, cleaning, etc...Wow, thanks Easter Bunny :)

That Easter Bunny is so funny

Works late too
We were able to get 3 or 4 hours sleep before Isabelle was up and ready to see if the Easter Bunny had made it to our house!

She had snuck into the living room and checked out the contents of her basket before we knew she was out of bed but she didnt notice all of the eggs or the huge mound under the blanket in the living room. I wonder what it is?

Isabelle has been a really good girl lately and instead of bringing a ton of candy the Easter Bunny thought she would bring her something Isabelle could really get some use out of...A new bike!! With helmet and pads of course :)

We were all still so tired ( this was at 6 a.m.) so we laid around for a while before getting dolled up to head over to The Axtel family's house for their Easter lunch and egg hunt.

My big girl

Never misses out on a road nap
We had such a nice time with The Axtels. Their family was so nice and we were happy to  have a surrogate family for the day. We miss all our family and friends everyday but Holidays are the hardest times. We love you guys! Happy Easter! Isabelle had a great time hunting eggs with the kids and playing with all of their toys!

The older kids were nice enough to hide 150 eggs for the little kids!

Checking the loot

and sampling it
We packed up all the loot and headed back home. Isabelle relaxed and watched some cartoons for a little bit and then we had a quick dinner and headed outside to get in some bike time before we ran out of daylight.

Shes a natural

It was starting to rain, the first time in weeks ( sorry hoosiers), so we went inside to watch the storm on the lanai before putting Isabelle to bed. I think she is finally asleep in there and I am barely keeping my eyes open! It has been a crazy couple days and I loved every minute of it! LML

She looked so sweet all dressed up, but she always does! Glad you guys had a fun day. Theo just sort of looked for eggs, but he does really like candy. Next year maybe he will get it. Happy Spring!
