Happy Easter

We had so much fun today.  Jon and I woke up to Elle running into our bedroom jumping and yelling with excitement, "we have to see if the Easter Bunny came"!  It was so early especially since I stayed up way too late getting everything ready.  The girls set off down the stairs.  I wasn't quite sure if Gwen was old enough to be excited but the minute she started digging through her basket she just couldn't stop laughing and smiling.  It is so much fun to be the parent and to sit back and watch your children be so happy!  Elle was thrilled that the Easter Bunny drank all of the hot chocolate and ate all of the carrots she had left for him.  The big hits were their slinkies and the pez dispensers.  We headed off to church and we were so rushed that I didn't get pictures of the girls in their Easter dresses.  I will save that for another day.  After church they discovered the hidden eggs in our backyard and set out to find them.  The day ended with tubbies and Elle got out the bunny and ducky towels to wrap them up in.  The Easter Bunny must be very tired tonight.  I am sure he is now resting where he lives (according to Elle) in the North Pole.
