Nathan was so thrilled about his Peep he couldn't even sit up to show his excitement.
Once Garrett found there was chocolate (or money!) in the eggs, then he was slightly more interested. Of course, by then Elena had pretty much picked the yard clean.
Ben, Meghan, and Nathan spent the afternoon with us. The temp was in the mid-80s and we enjoyed the yard and the kids playing outside. Dinner was roast lamb with raspberry marinade, couscous, and roasted asparagus. We were also supposed to have carrot cake for dessert, but I let my sugar supply run too low. Bummer, but the rest of the meal was delish!
Still the best part of the day for me was at the end, right before bed. The kids curled up on my lap in Elena's rocking chair and we read the Easter story from the Bible. Elena conked out in my arms and Garrett drifted off to sleep peacefully. My angels on earth, home and in my hearts forever.
