Steve is working. Dumb, I know. I never realized how ridiculous the hours that theatre people worked are, until I was no longer a part of that world. I mean, working on Easter Sunday?? Who DOES that?? (Theatre people, that's who.)
The Easter Bunny visited our house this morning...it hadn't even crossed his mind to stop off here until Griffin came home from daycare on Thursday telling us all about how the Easter Bunny was coming to visit this weekend. Since we don't do sugar around here, I figured we could get away with skipping Easter for a few more years until he realizes what he's missing out on. No such luck. So off I trundled, begrudgingly, to the dollar store, cursing the daycare lady for even bringing it up. I spent a few bucks on things that only mildly offended me (in contrast to much of the stuff at the dollar store that horribly offends!)
The smile on Griffin's face this morning was worth it, as he tore into a basket full of plastic dinosaurs, a new pair of "Crocs," some new crayons and some other do-dads. I came across some sugar free candies yesterday and last night
Fast forward many hours later....
Now, as I finish this post many hours later, the munchkin is in bed loudly sawing logs. We had a long (nap free!) day, complete with lots of green goobery stuff leaking from all facial orifices. I don't know what's up with this kid...my guess is he either has a sinus infection, or pink eye, but he will NOT be winning any Fun Kid of the Year awards for today! None the less, it's great to have been home for 3 whole days, (mostly) catch up on the piles of sick laundry, and stuff my face! A successful weekend had by all!
And now, for the photo version:
Oma arrives and gets down to some serious Duplo business:
And colouring too!Hope you had a Happy Easter!
The ONLY nap that happened the ENTIRE weekend....Friday afternoon, in the tent, clutching our newest obsession - "Bolt" (which was played AT LEAST 1/2 a dozen times this weekend!) Super cute!
After the cops were hanging out next door on Saturday, Dudley (who is inherently mistrustful of the neighbours and their loud trucks) keeps a watchful eye for the rest of the weekend:
