Happy Easter

It rained all Saturday night so the Easter Bunny hid the eggs in the rain. Then Katy to had to wait until after church to hunt eggs to give the ground a chance to dry up a little. The Easter Bunny filled her basket that she left on the kitchen table.

Easter Bunny loot. She got a Wreck-It Ralph DVD, pencils, shortbread cookies in a box that looks like a birdhouse, Peeps and a peanut butter Snickers bunny. The cascarones (confetti) eggs were in the basket instead of hidden in the yard since they won't do well in the rain.

Then it was off to church. It was our new pastor’s first Easter and he was pretty good. During the children’s sermon one little boy was answering all the questions and the children’s minister said something about him knowing all the answers. He said “Because I’m smart”. Katy had been handed a plastic egg for an illustration. It was the type that’s hinged and she had it doing a Pac-Man imitation.

Back home to hunt eggs.

All of the plastic eggs were filled with jelly beans and when Katy found the jelly bean bag in the trash she said “The Easter Bunny must have used our trash can”. I told her at least he didn’t leave the bag in the yard.

Wednesday night we went to the egg hunt at church. They call it an egg hunt. They scatter empty eggs around the soccer field and then you turn them in for a goody bag. They do it by ages and by the time the older kids get their turn none of the eggs are put together and they’re just dumped in a pile. So I didn’t get a picture of anything she “found”. They had a petting zoo, face painting, a police officer and car and I didn’t get a photo of Katy in the police car! And a few other activities. Katy did the Easter story scavenger hunt. She missed a couple of questions but did pretty well.
