The Easter Bunny came to town

Happy Easter!
We have had a sugar-filled and laziness-coated day. No bellyaches yet, but I see them in our future.

Our big Easter tradition is to plant jelly beans the night before....and then run outside in the morning to see if they sprouted. Did you know that the night before Easter is the only time of the year when jelly beans grow into lolipops? Pretty magical. They are beans, you know...
The only problem was that the ground was pretty frozen at planting time and very frozen at harvest time.... There were a couple which did not sprout, too.

The Easter Bunny brought lots of candy and a movie for each little lady. Amelia got the Backyardigans and Libby got Enchanted. We watched Enchanted this morning and we all LOVED it. Chris and I want to watch it again later today. I had no idea it was so good! Really, I recommend it to anyone, regardless of age.

OH and I started out the holiday with a Bloody Mary for Chris and I. Now THAT is the way to start a Sunday. Again, I highly recommend it...but not for all ages, I guess.

I built a new blog for my photography business and I'm thrilled with how it looks. Much more 'me' and much nicer having a custom blog on my own server. The new url is
Check it out and let me know what you think!

And now, of course, some photos

Cute jelly bean idea. I'll have to try that next year.

Quick question... was Enchanted "boy" friendly? Or was it really girlie. Just curious...

Happy Easter.

Definitely boy friendly. Chris loved it.... but he's sort of girlie :) ha!
No, there are sword fights and monsters and evil queens....way boy friendly!

That Easter Bunny sure is smart!!! Sometimes he leaves little notes inside plastic eggs here. The notes lead little kids on a hunt for an Easter basket. This year one of his notes read...."In the kitchen there's a blue bird mug, you'll find an egg there all nice and snug!!" There's another note in that egg and then starts the mad dash!!!
Hope that ground softens up soon!!!
