This morning I kicked everyone out of bed bright & early to get ready for Mass.
Connor did especially well today. Mass is tough for him, since it typically lasts a good hour and a half (if not longer). We usually bring a bag full of books & activities to help him stay quiet. And something to eat. Today he just played quietly with the travel drawing pad - it's one of those boards with the black stuff on the bottom, with a grey sheet and then a clear sheet on top. You use a stylus to write on it, and then lift up the sheets to clear it again. That worked great! He never even had to get into the snack!
After Mass we came home for a big breakfast. I made Pillsbury Cinnabon cinnamon rolls, and belgian waffles. I made a strawberry syrup with frozen strawberries, even though we had bought fresh ones. The fresh ones were just too nice to cut up into a sauce. We are eating them fresh. There was also whipped cream to go with the waffles. Lee made scrambled eggs and veggie sausage.
After the meal, Lee & I played Easter Bunny and hid the eggs in the yard. This year Connor was looking forward to the hunt, which was really cool. He was anxious to get out there. It was damp and muddy, but that was fine - the forecast was for rain, and at least it stayed dry!
I still had the mini candy bars I'd gotten in Canada last time I was there, so the kids got Aero bars & Smarties in their eggs, besides the regular M&M's & such.
All three got a Lindt Chocolate bunny first thing this morning. After church, Connor ate his WHOLE BUNNY at once! Usually he'd leave those alone (and I'd get them) but not anymore!! After that good behavior at church, he can run around and jump on his trampoline to work off the bunny. :)
WTF, me. #solareclipse2017
