The past two years our neighbors have gone around to the houses on our street and painted bunny footprints on the porch. So our porch would look like this on Easter morning. This is the picture from last year-
I didn't really give it much thought. That is, until Taylor ran to the front door, looked outside, and said in the saddest little voice, "Mommy, the Easter Bunny didn't come!" Apparently our neighbors were in Oregon for the weekend. Oops. So I told Taylor the Easter Bunny was running late, ran him upstairs, and quickly painted some footprints on our porch.
Anyway, I kind of slacked off this Easter. I usually get the boys a book about Jesus for their baskets, but I hadn't made it to any bookstore. So they had a couple pieces of candy and a little stuffed animal. Oh, and some paper grass. But they didn't care and were totally excited to look for Easter eggs.
Inspecting their loot.This Easter I made "Jesus Biscuits" with the boys. Ever heard of 'em? You get those Pillsbury biscuits, wrap a marshmallow inside (representing Jesus) and then bake them. The marshmallow melts, so it's empty inside, just like the tomb on Easter morning. Anyway, we made them, and afterwards Taylor says, "Mom, I don't want a Jesus biscuit. Thanks, though." Maybe next year...

Fast forward 2 years. Erik was around one when he first started taking a liking to the stuffed monkey. And now he absolutely adores it. He wouldn't (and couldn't) say "monkey." But we would make monkey noises with it. And since monkeys say, "ooh-ah" that's what Erik started calling him. He's really kinda nasty-looking (the monkey, that is). Erik falls asleep sucking on the monkey's tail, so it always stinks.

One of Taylor's favorite rides is Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. I can't count how many times he ended up riding it.
Taylor's other favorite ride was a smaller roller coaster called Mulholland Madness over in California Adventures that gave you whiplash the entire time. It was awful. But it had a super short line and Taylor took full advantage of that.I love this picture of Linda. Doesn't she look like she's having the time of her life??Erik and Daddy on King Arthur's Carousel.
Cute, isn't she? Though I did give Kent a hard time for photographing her without a bow.
The room that we stayed in had a jacuzzi tub. Man, with those water jets, it's amazing how many bubbles you can get. We lost the boys a couple times underneath all of them.
