Easter 2009

>> Monday, April 13, 2009

Easter was really fun. Other than our battling illness with Lily it turned out to be a beautiful day. We wanted to go to church with the Bakers but with Lily still fighting a fever/bouts of fussiness we decided to forgo torturing her. So I went early to get her antibiotics and go grocery shopping for Easter Lunch. I made a delicious smoked pork chop and sweet potato combo. Lily liked it a lot. Diet friendly especially with the yummy side salad. You can really tell in these pictures the weight loss. Especially my handsome hubby. The blue on him is almost irresistible!

We gave Lily her Easter basket when she woke up. Still sleepy eyed and feverish she wasn't too interested in the cute clothes the Easter bunny picked out. And the tweeting bird was not as big of a hit as Ms. Bunny hoped. But she was sick. What was a hit? The dollar plastic eggs. Why is it always the dollar toys that rock it out for babies?

Lily got to wear a pretty dress and prance along the yard in search of eggs. We did get a nice little surprise on the very first egg. If you look close you can see a little lizard hiding under the yellow egg. We went to grab it and heard a rustling. We were close to scaring her for life or into never doing another egg hunt again!

And this is my favorite. My little lady all by herself looking at an egg. She is getting so big and so perfect. The dress, the weather, the family, made it all a perfect first Easter for the little Princess!
