Well the lil one came home after lunch yesterday and we were all ready to have our Easter Celebration with her.
Sir Steve had bought her some walkie talkies - originally we thought they would come in so handy this summer in the country -- it would allow her to bike further and I could still get in touch with her -- of course that isn't looking possible now BUT she was delighted with them!! She left one with her father and took one to her bedroom -- she had great fun buzzing us to chat !! (like every 10 minutes!)
We had some trouble with her staying focused at school - socializing instead of working... I had given her a cheap bracelet that I had and told her that the bracelet was me sitting with her in class. BUT it was a cheap bracelet and broke ...... so I bought her a bracelet that says 'she believed she could so she did' - that was a HUGE hit.
And then the Easter bunny made a scavenger hunt for her........ 10 hints/riddles to lead her around the house to find her basket of chocolate. What fun she had solving the riddles and her dad and I had as much fun watching her scoot around the house finally finding " Rub a Dub Dub your loots in the tub "!!
I decided to make an Easter Egg cake -- but didn't have a cake mix -- so I made the cake from scratch!! Wow imagine ! a cake from scratch!! Sir Steve and I couldn't get over how much better it was than cake mix cakes....... guess who's only make cake from scratch from now on
AND back in the fall lamb went on sale... and I bought a leg of lamb. What a treat to have it for Easter!!!
We missed our families...... a lot! BUT we weren't alone ... everyone had an Easter without family /friends -- next year right??!!!
