happy easter!

Good Friday was really good to Lily.  It's always a big day when you get to wear pajamas to school.  And she got a cupcake for some kid's birthday.  And she got to dye an Easter egg at school.  And she got to make bunny ears and get her face painted.  Life is good when you're six.

Here's a few from our Saturday night and a teeny glimpse of Sunday dinner.

Let me point out that Steve made Easter dinner for us.  All of it.  From the roast to the rolls.  I got to take a nap.  Meals are always better when you don't have to make them.  Especially on Sundays.  He impresses me.  It seems like he always has some culinary masterpiece up his sleeve.  (I know it's weird, but the first time he made S.O.S for me, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.  It was a "low budget wonder.")  

I told him he's in charge of all holiday dinners from now on.  And they all must include those rolls.  (I think if I could only eat those rolls, hot with butter and peach jam for the rest of my life, I would be happy as a clam.) 

The Easter Bunny was a little more practical with Lily's Easter basket this year.  She got a book.  Which was brilliant on E.B.'s part because it actually held her attention longer than a stuffed animal would.  (We have past years' Easter stuffed things coming out of our ears.)  If you're all Diary of  Wimpy Kid-ded out, try the Dork Diaries.  Lily loves 'em.

Hope your Easter was a good one and that you got a nap, too.


  1. Cute! Looks like a ton of fun at your house! :D

  2. I like the looks of that roast.


If you can't say something nice, say it behind my back.
