Easter Day 2009

On Easter morning, Dylan hunted for his Easter basket. I know it looks like a pretty ridiculous basket, with no candy, but at this point, he doesn't care, so I figured why get him hyped up on sugar if I don't have to? Believe me, he was happy with what he got!

He was thrilled with the "gummy bears", (which he recently told someone is his favorite food). Actually, they were organic, bunny shaped fruit snacks, but all he knows is they were "YUMMY!" (He looks like he is in a cheesy, over acted commercial for them in this shot!)

We went to my parents house for the day, and Jim's parents also came, so it was just the 7 of us. Our holiday celebrations are pretty quiet. Louder since Dylan came along, but still pretty quiet. It wasn't warm enough to hide the eggs outside, but Mi-Mi had them hidden in the living room and patio.

Of course, both sets of grandparents spoiled him, so he got a lot of stuff, but his favorite had to be the Elmo, who sings the ABC's.

One highlight of the day for me was discovering that he can now catch a ball! Who knew? I'm think he was even surprised.

My buddy Marsha pointed out that I don't have many pictures of myself on the blog. (You'd think it was all about Dylan, wouldn't you? : ) ) So, here you go. This is what I look like, if you were wondering.

Dylan's basket looks a lot like Evan's. Complete with flashcards! I will have to look for those organic fruit snacks. They sound good!

Halloween 2008 (I think) you posted a pic of yourself. I think that might just be the last time, though!

My kids' baskets also looked a lot like Dylans . . . animal crackers, Goldfish crackers, temporary tattoos, etc. They are sweet (and hyper) enough without the sugar!

And I love the picture of the two of you!

He looks so grown up in that picture with the ball!

You are an awesome mom. I wish I had done a little better with all of that. I should have bought organic stuff too. Much healthier than the chocolate I bought for my kid!

It's great to see a photo of you. I think the last one was of you and Jim on your anniversary? Maybe?
