For Easter, we got to go to my parents house for a little visit. I know my mom was so excited for all her family to be there at one time. We had a blast, but it was such a short trip!
We got there Friday afternoon, just in time for Cooper to get to enjoy Poppy and Lolly's yard. Now that Coop is walking, he really got to see how much fun living in the country can be! He was a filthy mess, but that only means he is having fun. I know that he will really enjoy getting to go to their house and play outside. Lots of exciting things to see. That night, Matt babysat, while I went up to the church to help decorate for the Easter party. My sister and I were there until about 9:30 at night and then headed to the movies. Now this may not seem like a big deal to most of you, but to me, it was huge! First, I rarely stay up past 10:00. Even when I was in high school and college, I wanted to be in bed. I LOVE to sleep. So for me to go to a late movie is a BIG DEAL. Second, I haven't been to a movie in ages. I used to go to movies all the time, but lately, that hasn't happened. It's ok. Since we don't have TV, I really don't know what is out anyway. The only ones I keep up with are Harry Potter and Twilight. So we went to see Water for Elephants. I had not read the book, but mom and Brandy wanted to go. So we had a girl date and I enjoyed it! I was SO TIRED though. I fidgeted through the whole movie trying to stay awake! But, if you haven't seen the movie, I do suggest you go. Very good!
Saturday morning, we headed to Friendship Church of Christ for their Breakfast with the Easter Bunny. Since I had helped decorate, I was anxious to enjoy the party! They had the church looking so cute and had many fun activities to do besides Easter Egg hunting. Cooper was TERRIFIED of the Easter Bunny. He was fine until I tried to set him on his lap. I thought the child was going to die! So, I ended up sitting on the bunny's lap to get a picture. Oh me! On a side note (and rather scary note), we tried to get a cousin picture with the Easter Bunny. So we sat Frankie on the Easter Bunny's lap. Now Frankie is not quite 7 months old, and guess what happened, the Easter Bunny dropped her! Literally! It was like watching something in slow motion. None of us could get to her fast enough. And she fell right on her head and neck. We all screamed, and I almost started crying, but Brandy reassured us that Frankie was ok. And Frankie was fine once Brandy picked her up! But my heart was racing for awhile after that!
