So when this weekend finally arrived, Kaylee was bouncing. regardless of her 6am morning wake up, she was still fighting sleep for everything she was worth at 9pm. The kid is a trooper. I mean I was tuckered out. Waiting for her to fall asleep and then waiting a little while longer to make sure there was no jumping up from her. Finally, Jordon and I went to work putting eggs everywhere. When all the treats were hidden around the house, I decided a note was just what she needed to start off the day.
Jordon and I went off to bed and come morning time, I was laying in bed, waiting for the little pidder padder of her feet. I laid in bed awake almost 40 minutes before the dog finally woke Kaylee up. She ran into my room excitedly. Wildly telling me, with arms flailing that there were eggs! She had been good and the Easter Bunny had come to our house! Seeing her that excited was the best feeling ever. We followed her back into her bedroom, put on her slippers, read her bunny note and then started the egg hunt.
|Sure is a good thing its her last year as an only child!|
It never seizes to amaze me how fast it is all over. She ran around the house collecting eggs and other treats I had left out- rubber boots, new sneakers, a couple new outfits (all things she needed I swear) before she realized it was over and then what? Fortunately she spent the next hour playing with her new play dough while I cleaned up and made breaky.
|Look at all these shoes!!|
|This is what I picked up in one score!|
|Wayy too cute right?|
|All washed and folded. Ready for a tiny human.|
|Looking a little more like a big kid room.|
Kaylee's room looks a little more grown up with her own mirror, and the spare room that I have forever called "Dan's Room" because that's where our friend Dan lived with us for a year or so in the early house years, is now becoming a little baby boys room.

year old. :)
I of course also cooked up a great big ham dinner. It was fabulous. Kaylee loves her mashed potatoes, and ham. She polished off her plate like her Daddy. We also made up a special plate for our favorite neighbor. He works out west and is home tomorrow. Thought it would be nice to come home to a home cooked meal in his fridge.

Easter eggs of course!
