Hoppy Easter Everyone!
We had a very quiet long weekend for M's first easter. We had planned to go to church on Good Friday (always a very interesting service at St Mark's, with Bryan Nason and the troupe from Grin and Tonic reading relevant literature/bible passages instead of the readings and sermon) and also on Easter Sunday, but the 9:30 service is proving to be very awkwardly timed right now. If M wakes up around 7ish, then by 9:15-9:30, she's ready for her morning sleep ... and she won't sleep in the pram or in our arms at church ... too much going on. Next year will be a different story!
M was very lucky, and the Easter Bunny brought her gifts ... a white choc bunny and a train of small eggs. The Easter Bunny also left gifts for M with MorMor (some warm clothes to wear in Melbourne while I'm at AODC), Grandma and Grandad Richardson (a fluffy bunny and an egg), and the Hookers (a bunny mug and an egg). I don't think we're going to be able to save the eggs for M until she's allowed to eat chocolate ...
On Easter Sunday, we had a picnic in the park with the John's Mum and Dad and sister Janet. It was great fun, and M loved looking up at the tall gum trees and listening to the noises of kids playing cricket and footy and generally having fun in the park. She also got to participate in her favourite activity ... being adored and cuddled by her family! :)
On Easter Monday, we spent the afternoon and evening with the Hookers. The kids just adored looking at M; D in particular was fascinated with her. M is going to have so much fun trying to catch up with them as she gets older. She loved having the kids talking to her and helping her play with her toys.
