The Bird has to tell you about Easter – like every year – it is still her favorite. This was no exception. It felt low-key and easy. Mimi sent O a cute Easter outfit. GB sent enough goodies to fill his basket. The Keet and Huz recently reconnected with some dear, old friends who came over for Easter dinner (and brought half the food). It really was relaxed and lovely.
Little O dyed eggs this year. It felt nearly cliche to be so excited watching him get so excited. He didn’t know the egg was going to come out of the cup a whole different color! So genuine and so sweet.
He woke up bright and early and was excited to see “new stuff” on the living room floor in his Easter basket. The Keet and Huz rolled out of bed to watch him look at each thing. By 8AM, the Keet had to take him outside where he could use his new shovel and gardening tools and look for bugs and worms with his new magnifying glass. Church wasn’t until 11.
Service was lovely. They decided to try and keep O in the pews through the children’s message. He loved the processional and was mostly quiet. He did ask to go potty – of course. The Huz left with him and as they came back into church, Pastor had moved into the central aisle. O came trotting in and yelled “I’m back!” Pastor acknowledged, “good to see you, O” and everything continued on – oh JEEZ – I think you know whose kid this is! The Huz and Keet had been telling him that Jesus came on Easter until he got too scared that Jesus was going to be in his room or something and the explaining got too confusing for all involved.
After his nap, we had a lovely dinner with friends who were way too indulgent and helpful with the two-year old. He had his Easter Egg Hunt party of one in the backyard. Hilarious! 4 adults cheering him on with each discovery – might have to find him some competition next year.
The food was scrumptious. They all went to bed early and full, the perfect way to end any Holiday.
