The One Where I Post About a Million Easter Pics









So, on Easter day I felt a little like the traveling circus. We picked up our mentee "Bean", a seven year old foster child with special needs, including autism to spend Easter with our family and participate in the Easter egg hunt. And of course, we had feisty Mateo and the new baby, and my five year old cousin, along with a variety of other relatives. But for us, it was sort of like instant family of 5. In a matter of just a few days we went from one child to three. Even though we only had Bean for the day, we got a taste of what a larger family would be like. And it was....ummm....busy.

Anyway, we had a great time really. It was a lot of fun, up until it was time to drive the one hour home. Apparently Mateo had overdosed on candy without us realizing it. After wolfing down most of the jellybeans in his eggs before we could get it away from him, he also ransacked his cousin's easter bag too. By the time we got in the car to go home, he was crashing from the sugar high. I'm not proud to say it, but I actually pretended to throw all the candy out the window on the drive home to make him behave. It didn't work.

Great pictures. I recently bribed R to let me strap her into her car seat without a fight by telling her we were going to go get cookies. I knew she would fall asleep in 4 minutes or less... and she did, so it was all good. When she woke up, she'd completely forgotten about the cookies!
