I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. I know we did, I was exhausted by the time we got home last night.
As soon as Katie got out of bed, we checked out what the Easter bunny left us the night before. Katie loves everything the Easter bunny left her. She received a big pink stuffed Easter bunny that sings "I Love You A Bushel & A Peck"; a Thumbelina doll; silly pen; chocolate Fairy Bunny and lots of candy.
We got all dressed up and went to church. As soon we got home, Katie grabbed her Easter basket and went looking for eggs that the Easter bunny hid out in the front lawn. She had a blast looking for eggs (31 eggs). The crazy bunny forgot to put money in the prize eggs. Shame, shame! We will have to have a talk with him next year about the prize eggs. Tehe! As soon as all the eggs were found, we headed out for the family get together.
We had lunch with Peggy, Millard and Henry. Keisha came over a little later to visit. We brought the Easter eggs with us to their house and hid them again for Katie to hunt them. It wasn't much of a hunt because Katie wouldn't close her eyes, while Grandma Peggy hid the eggs. She knew where every one of the eggs were. Surprise, surprise! Of course, we had to gather around the television for a little bit to watch The Masters. It was so cold yesterday, we stayed outside long enough to take pictures, hunt eggs and look at Millard and Peggy's hell damage from the day before. They said golf ball sized hell beat up the siding on their house and put holes in their satellite dishes and ground. I was shocked!
We've had some pretty bad t-storms coming through here the past few days. While Peggy and Millard's house was being pulverized, it was extremely windy at our house. It was kind of scary at times because the trees were really being blown around. Unfortunately, Doug's first day at work didn't end up on a good note. The same storm system that went through Peggy & Millard's neighborhood, visited Doug's work. Our car, which was just paid off and we received the title the other day, was beat to a pulp. More than likely, we will have to replace the hood and trunk because the damage is so bad. I called our insurance adjuster as soon as Doug called me from his cell phone. Hopefully, the adjuster will be here to evaluate the car tomorrow. We are under another T-storm warning as we speak and expected to receive storms throughout the night. I don't know about you, but I'm ready for the April shower to leave and receive May flowers.
We headed over to June and Pat's house for Easter supper. Of course, the baby and Katie were passed around like a bag of potatoes. Katie was in heaven. She received gifts from her Grandma Jerry, Papa John and aunts, plus her playmates were all there as well. She hated it when we had to go home. She was so tired from playing hard, but she didn't want to leave.
Last night, Colton was ate up with gas. I think it was because we were on the road most of the day yesterday. Poor baby! We didn't get much sleep at all. I felt like a walking zombie at times this afternoon. In fact, I fell asleep rocking baby boy (because of gas) and Katie woke me up. When I woke up, she was hugging my neck and patting my hair. She asked me if I was tired. When I told her that I was, she said "don't go to sleep". I've been so tired, I've resorted to caffeine to keep me awake. Hey, it's either Mt. Dew or force myself to drink coffee. I hate coffee, but I do like a chocolate caramel latte from Joe Muggs. Yummy!
Colton received another gift today from a friend of mine, Michelle L. It's an Alabama basketball type outfit. I can't wait for him to be able to wear it, so I can take a picture of him in it. It's so cute! Michelle also gave Katiebug a little something, Disney Princess' barrettes. She absolutely loves them! If and when I ever get some rest, we'll have to schedule a dress up party with Colton and some of his outfits. I did that with Katie when she was a baby and had so much fun. I have to say, it is more fun to play dress up with little girls then little boys.
