Scarlett's first Easter

What a day! Scarlett woke up and received her first Easter basket ever. It contained some beach toys, baby crocs, bubbles and Raggedy Ann, whom she now loves...well, at times. At the times when she decides she does not love Raggedy Ann she is violently throwing her on the floor...and once she used Raggedy to bang on her toy piano...and once she stepped on her face - okay twice. Val, Andrei, and Carson met us at at church for an Easter egg hunt. It was very fun to have friends at church. Scarlett wore a special outfit that her Great Aunt Cathy from Prince Edward Island gave to her when she was born. To my delight, it fit her perfectly. Let the hunt begin!Carson started playing with some chairs - and of course, Scarlett copied him. Then we had cookies. Cookies with frosting. The parents had coffee...does it get any better than that?!I swear...if Scarlett's crib was in my car we'd have no trouble getting her to nap. We live 3 minutes from church and she didn't even make it home. Maybe Fisher Price can invent a crib with a motor. (back off folks...patent pending). Afterwards, some of the family came over for a visit. Here are "The Nan," Aunt Stephanie, Scarlett and I,then we'll throw in a dad and an Uncle Craig.We ate, drank, and were merry. Then 50% of us fell asleep on the couch. Just so you know - that 50% was not including Scarlett, who was wide awake. Apparently her one 20 minute nap in the car at 12:30 sufficed. That's it...that was our Easter. I hope yours was as good as ours.
