Our Easter

The week before Easter our little family was struck with the horrible stomach bug that just wouldn't go away.  Olivia started all of the fun on Tuesday and continued into Wednesday.  I started my turn on Thursday and I thought we were out of the woods on Friday when no one was puking.  Poor little girl relapsed on Saturday and Chad woke up sick on Sunday.  There were no festive breakfasts, no impromptu egg hunts outside, no dyeing of eggs and pretty much no fun around here for those 5 days.
Olivia seemed better on Sunday, but we decided to skip church since she could still be contagious and Chad was having his fun with the bug.  I took Olivia to my Mom's for lunch and an Easter egg hunt with all the cousins.

She had so much fun despite skipping a nap and being on the mend.  She loved picking up the eggs and putting them in her basket exclaiming what color she was picking up each time.  Never miss an opportunity to learn around here ;) 

We also had a cold snap come through on Sunday and she didn't get to wear her pretty dress I had made for her.  We will still get pictures made in it though in May...praying she hates having her picture taken less by then.  Does anyone else's kid absolutely loathe having their picture taken??   One more thing to add to the strong willed check list I suppose.
I took a couple of pics with my phone when I first got it in and I cannot wait to have professional pictures done in it!

Good news is that the Easter bunny still comes to see you even when you are sick!  Little miss was pretty excited to dig into her basket when she woke up Sunday morning.  Her favorite was the sparkle lip gloss of course (that she thought was nail polish and tried to paint her toes with).  All three of us had sparkly lips for the rest of the day :)

Even under the weather we have so much to be thankful for, most of all our risen Savior, Jesus Christ!  I hope everyone had a happy Easter and now it officially feels like spring!
