Just like when Christmas comes, we milk the opportunity to bribe our children with good behavior by telling them the Easter Bunny doesn't come to boys who aren't nice. For a couple of weeks Kyson has been asking about "the bunny." He even woke us up last Thursday morning asking if the Bunny had come. The Easter Bunny did come to our house this morning, and hedidn't disappoint. It was simple, but it doesn't take much to make little kids happy.
Bright and early, 6:30am to be precise, Kyson woke up asking about the Bunny and because Kodi's basket was hidden under the coffee table, in plain sight, I had to get up with him. So Kris and I rolled out of bed and dragged our tired selves downstairs. Immediately Kyson started
scouring the downstairs for his basket and found it behind his chair in the family room. Of course he was most excited about his cars, but he played with a lot of things. Kodi woke up around 8 and had no trouble finding her basket either. She liked her Ritz crackers and books the most. I bought Kris a grill for the special occasion, but because it's too big to hide, I hid the propane tank with his basket. He didn't even notice the tank. When I told him to go back and look again, he got excited.
After the fun of looking through Easter baskets and enjoying a propane tank, we relaxed to an episode of Glee from Season 1 on Netflix. Nothing says Easter Sunday like Glee.
Then came Church.
The evening was the highlight. Kris's parents came over for dinner and an Easter Egg hunt and it was so much fun. Kyson was so excited about looking for Easter eggs that he hogged most of them.
Even when we'd try to p0int them out to Kodi, she'd get distracted by something and move on. Kyson probably got 3 times the amount she did, but it doesn't really matter - she doesn't really eat candy yet anyway. It was wonderful to have the company of Grandma and Grandpa Bodily. The whole day was wonderful and it's so nice to be able to share it with family.
