This is from Easter 1981. I was 7 years old 🙂

The Easter Bunny Was VERY Generous

I’m finding it really hard to not spoil my kids. (I’ve written about this before…)

We got them each a “large” present for their Easter basket and then some a lot of small gifts as well. And Nana and Grandpa have gifts ready. And Aunt Sharon and Uncle Jason contribute. (Aunt Cathy does too if she heads to Vermont as well, she just happened to be out of town this year.) And they usually receive gifts from Granny Frani and cards (with cash) from Pop Pop and Mop Mop too.

Is it over-the-top? Ya, Probably. Am I okay with it? Yes, I am. For now. 🙂

We changed Logan’s crib into a toddler bed, so he needed toddler bedding! The Easter Bunny brought Mickey Mouse sheets, a pillow case, and comforter. (And the sheets have that same half-fitted top sheet!! Still genius.)

Burke has been asking for Mac (from Disney’s Cars) to round out his collection.

And Maggie has been asking for Ruby Red Slippers.

(she can’t stop dancing LOL!)

And proof that Logan actually slept in his bed last night! (After a half hour of angry sobbing on Daddy’s lap because Mommy wouldn’t come back until he asked for me nicely….Mommy didn’t come back.)

Logan in his new bed

He woke up a little bit early this morning, so Mike went in and asked if he wanted to come into Mommy and Daddy’s room or go back to sleep. He chose to go back to sleep! (*phew*) And then when he woke up the second time, he was just sitting up in bed smiling. Here’s to hoping tonight’s bed time process goes a wee bit better…

Easter Fun

We had a great weekend in Vermont. In addition to cooking with Nana, the kids got belated birthday presents, dyed eggs, acted like monkeys, went to church lookin’ *fine*, had an egg hunt, and made Easter baskets with Nana and Uncle Jason.

Each kid gets their own trail of plastic eggs that leads them directly to their Easter basket. Four different trails leading throughout my Dad’s house.

Not quite “baby” – but it feels like we were just babies back then 🙂 This is from Easter 1981.
