I realized (very late Saturday night) that we might indulge V a little:
Sunday morning found her very excited to discover the eggs the Easter bunny left (it only occurred to me Saturday night that we should do an egg hunt). Through some quick thinking I was able to explain the Easter Bunny’s use of ‘her’ plastic eggs by pointing out that he’d want to make sure Chet (the dog) couldn’t get at the candy. She agreed this was wise, and as she added to everyone who heard the tale, ‘because my dog eats everything in the house’.

As soon as the egg hunt and a quick skype with her cousins in India were over I needed to take Chet for his ‘morning constitutional’ so I decided to bring my camera along. This guy’s breakfast may have rivalled mine. But the effort he put into hauling it up the tree was well worth watching.

We then spent a great evening with hubby’s sister and her family, celebrating not only Easter but our nephews’ 18th birthdays as well (man it seems like yesterday!)
And topped it all off with a gorgeous sunset:
I may come down off the sugar high by Tuesday.
