|He looks like a pro, doesn't he? :)|
|Not sure what he was doing for this one...maybe talking about throwing something. Love it anyway...|
|I just love the pure joy on his face in this one. He was saying the tree looked like a moose and thought that was very funny.|
|Love this one. Sweet, happy, and full of blue skies :)|
We had a late-ish dinner and another uneventful bedtime, shortly after which my mom and aunt got home. Bummer of a day for them :(
Craig got to my parents' house very late after a Knighthawks' win over the Bandits so he could join us for church the next morning. We had a couple minutes before church so Jacob could "find" his Easter basket. It wasn't hidden very hard. He got a chocolate soccer-themed bunny, an Air Bud movie we got cheap at a Blockbuster Video store closing sale, a lacrosse shirt (which he actually got a duplicate of--I'm going to try to exchange it for the next size up), a little puzzle, and a few eggs with some candy.
|Have I mentioned what a big boy he's becoming?|
|This picture is blurry, but I liked it so much. He looks so grown up and it's showing off his big boy belt, which he needed for these pants. Tall and skinny makes dressing kids awfully tough!|
After that we were off to breakfast. Jacob pretty much just ate pancakes and doughnuts, but the food was really good and kicked off a long day of eating. Afterward we headed off to the Easter egg hunt, at which Jacob won a giant blue bunny last year. I prayed he wouldn't win anything like that again (once is enough!) and he proceeded to wander around the candy-filled room and fill a small paper bag half full of candy. Here he is among the Tootsie Rolls, Nerds, Sweet Tarts, and more...
After that we were off to Craig's parents. We hung out all afternoon with his brother's and cousin's families--lots of kids for Jacob to play with. We actually kept the sports to a minimum for most of the time and Jacob stayed mostly out of trouble. Considering he had a short, early nap, that was good for him. We ate an obscene amount of food (so good) and ended up leaving during the second intermission of the Sabres game. We made a stop at Craig's aunt and uncle's house, though we had missed most of the rest of the family since we were there considerably later than scheduled. Still, we wanted to stop. We had a little more food there, enjoyed hanging out for a few hours, and headed out much later than scheduled. We didn't get home until nearly 10:30 (and yes, Jacob slept the whole time), but the long, busy day was worth it to have a good day with the family.
So, all in all, Easter was a success. We're still recovering a bit, but I have plenty to keep me busy at work this week and have a nice long weekend to look forward to again next weekend. More on that soon...but first, I'm sure you'll be waiting with baited breath to hear about Jacob's first trip to Chuck E. Cheese...
