Easter Flowers Makes My Monday...plus an interview with Katie

Monday, April 13, 2009

Every year as the house fills with the smell of heaven I remember why I love making Easter flower baskets for my mom and grandmom. Late Easter Eve and until we leave our house on Easter Day, every time I go downstairs I am instantly happy because the hyacinths have smelled up the whole downstairs. Yum!!!! Getting to still smell the leftover few hyacinths at my house the next day really Makes My Monday!!! (Make sure you stop by Twinfatuation to see who else is playing along.)
I also love getting that picture of the goodies just as the Easter Bunny has hopped away...amazing how we moms know when the Easter Bunny has already come so we can grab a picture before the morning...also amazing that the mom's shopping obsession equally inspires the Easter Bunny to over buy at our house...also amazing that the Easter Bunny actually left Katie a letter this year telling her that her playroom was so messy that he had to hide eggs in the basement this year.

The kids sure seemed to enjoy their goodies from the Easter Bunny.

Katie LOVED finding all the Easter Eggs - she'd been looking forward to that for days. The Easter Bunny was pretty tricky this year and it didn't slow her down for a minute...she especially loved finding that last one that even I couldn't find (go figure, sleepy mommy!)

Timmy got to play with a truck for the first time and loved the assortment of stuffed animals and chewing toys he got!

And in honor of my countdown to my 100th post (posting tomorrow), here's a little interview with Katie to wet your whistle (speaking of whistles, Katie and I went to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in Philly last night and it was AWESOME...toot, toot, the candy that toots...I know those aren't the actual words, but you know what I mean). This is from the "Facebook Note" being passed around in cyberspace and I've recorded Katie exactly as she answered.

1. What is something mom always says to you to do? I don’t KNOW…ummmmmm….you can have ice cream when you’re food’s ALL gone!
