Here Comes Peter Cottontail..

This year I'd been dreading Easter like never before.  I knew we couldn't attempt Church, and it was making me sad, once again,  not to be 'part of'. Everyone seems to have an outside family; church, friends, work, etc.  But being the Mom of Creighton means we do things differently,  and I have tiny circles.

This year,  I knew I had to create my child's Easter  just like I would anything else.  So, I planned with a local friend to hunt lighted eggs at night,  not one time,  but twice. He had the grandest time,  too. He's been saying ''egg'' all weekend.

His BeBe came to visit him and we went to eat on the Square.  She also got to watch him hunt eggs, too.

And on Sunday, well, that day we spent as a family.  We blew bubbles, played shape eggs, read books, and ate lots of candy.

We also went to see Gee, she wasn't in the best of moods, but he still had a small hunt.

Overall, this was the BEST Easter we've had so far.  There were no special clothes or shoes this year,  there was a lot of stuff from Bunny, which maybe got judgement from other moms, but at the end of the day he went to bed happy, and with mostly awesome memories.  That's all that matters.

So,  Peter, you come back to see us again next year.  We'll be ready.
