First Crush

So a couple of days ago, Ethan was being really secretive. He got out a piece of paper and a crayon. He was working on something, but he wouldn't let me see. I figured he was making me a get well soon card because I had been sick for a couple of days, and Ethan is known for doing that. When he was finished, he folded it up and taped the paper shut. I asked him what it was but he didn't want to tell me. So, jokingly, I said "Is it for your girlfriend?" I only said this to tease because he has always said that he doesn't like girls. But instead of getting mad and saying no, he said yes. He said it was for Caitlyn in his class, and she told him that she loves him too. I asked him if I could read it and he let me.

(in case you cant understand first grade spelling, it says : I love you Caitlyn, you are my only girl. I want to get married. I love you. You love me too. Love Ethan)

I know this is cute and innocent and all, but it makes me realize what I am going to have to deal with in a few years. Why can't boys just love their mommies forever?

Well I dont know about any of you but we have candy coming out of our ears!!! It started the weekend before Easter. We went on an egg hunt for my sister in law's work where the kids got tons of candy. They also got to each find a foil-covered egg worth $1. They were pretty excited about that.

Later we got our picture taken with the Easter Bunny.

The day before Easter we went on a egg hunt at the preschool the girls go to. It is also a church, so there were about 300 kids there. Ethan won a raffle and got a stuffed bunny, chocolate, and an Easter CD. This was the best egg hunt we have ever been to. My camera battery died so I didnt get any pictures of this but it was so much fun! They had different age groups and each area was covered with little toys and eggs. We are definitely going to do this one again next year. The kids all came back with their baskets overflowing!

Finally, on Easter, they got candy from the Easter Bunny, and we did one last egg hunt with my family. We also did an adult egg hunt that was a lot of fun. Some of the eggs had $1 in them, and then there was a silver egg, a gold egg worth $5, and the "golden egg", a fancy polished sparkly rock shaped like an egg, worth $10. There were probably about 25 adults searching, and finally, Dane found the egg! But I got the money :)

Here is a picture of our family on Easter
