Happy Easter '09!

We think (scratch that...we know) she's a favorite of the Easter Bunny. She had a great day, although ours was off to a bit of a hectic start.

We had the eggs stuffed and ready for hiding, and we decided last night that M would hide them in the yard after church while I got Zozer changed and ready to go. The weather forecast looked nice, and Easter egg hunts are always way cooler outside.

That plan was waylaid this morning when, upon waking, Zoe looked at us with expectant eyes and queried, "Do you think the Easter Bunny hid eggs in my house? Do you think there are some in the hall? Let's go look!"


M and I glanced at each other, telegraphing parental panic with our eyes. Our unspoken conversation went something like this:

"Oh, ^%$&!"
"What do we do?"
"I don't know! What do you think?"
"Hide them now?"
"I guess so!"

He scrambled while I stalled. We make a good team when it comes to deceiving our 3-year-old, M and I do. I have to give the man props...he hid 31 plastic eggs around our house in about two minutes. All was well when Daddy arrived back in Zoe's room, just as we were finishing our business (which, this morning, included dumping out the container of piggy-tail holders and sorting them by color).

Off we went and lo! There were eggs in the hallway!

That Easter Bunny...he's a good rabbit.

Kudos to Hoot, too, for taking it like an owl and braving the rigors of Easter basket duty. Ever the faithful companion, he traveled the hunt resting comfortably in the bottom of the basket. Well, it was comfortable in between Zoe finding eggs and dropping them on him.

Happy Easter!
