Another fun Easter Brunch at the H family's home. Cold, cloudy, and rainy...yes, but still fun. The Easter bunny had come the night before and left tons of candy and squirt guns! The baskets were by the back door, and we occasionally get those little sugar ants coming in that door through some tiny crack. So RTH came down to find ants swarming on his 'peeps chicks', but somehow that did not deter him from digging through the ants in the basket and scarfing down as much candy as possible before breakfast. Yeah, it's very likely he swallowed a few ants. At least they don't cause cavities.
After church, friends and neighbors came for food and our annual egg hunt. Each year as all the kids get older there is less crying, screaming, and fighting over eggs. In fact, there was none this year! Plus, no one stuffed themselves to the point of throwing up chocolate...that is a big feat.
ANH is the only little 5yo (now 6!) I know who successfully managed to give up chocolate without cheating for 40 days. Even she didn't gorge herself on it when she finally could. Happy Easter!
