Easter Weekend Recap

We had a great long weekend, it's always nice when the Husband gets off an extra day.  He spent a lot time priming the front room, foyer, stairwell, and upstairs hallway, now just on to paint it! (Probably the worst job to do in the house - have fun, I'll sit this one out!)

We also had Ashlynn's 1 year old pictures and some family shots done.  The weather on Saturday was perfect and Ashlynn was a doll, smiling at the camera and even putting up with a few outfit changes.  I can't wait to see the results!

For Easter we had my In Laws over from brunch, we served Carrot Cake Pancakes (dairy and egg free for Ashlynn) and scrambled eggs.  My mother in law brought some cinnamon pull apart bread, that I'm stuffing my face with as I write this post... so. damn.good.... and gooey. too.

Ashlynn was pretty thrilled with all her Easter gifts.  She was a bit unsure of Mimi's Dancing Puppy, but after a bit, followed my lead and started to push his feet to make him dance and would clap along - just not to the clapping songs, go figure.

While she's a bit too small for her Bunny Rocker, the Easter Bunny couldn't pass up the opportunity, she is our bunny after all!

She'll start receiving a basket next year when she can really get into the fun!  Also, the half deflated balloons from Saturday's shoot (that we forgot to use!) were a big hit, too!

The rest of the day included playing with all our bunnies, just like I used to do as a kid, reading Pat the Bunny, Peter Rabbit, and Guess How Much I Love You, and eating an easy dinner of fish, asparagus, and egg noodles.  Ashlynn skipped the fish, though I was tempted to let her try.  I want her to try egg yolk again tomorrow, so I thought I'd hold off.  She's been loving asparagus and noodles this week though, so I thought I'd use up the rest we had, give the girl what she wants!

I can't believe the weekend is over, looks like it's time to start get the ball rolling on decorating and planning for Ashlynn's Party!  Eek!
