Levi J really loved Easter this year. I'm so glad he wasn't able to see what other moms did for their kids for Easter, because he would have been very jealous. I did not feel great, so our festivities were kept to a minimum, and his Easter basket was frankly pretty lame.
But luckily he didn't know the difference! He was pretty happy. We did make it to two Easter egg hunts, one with our BFFs and one in a nearby community, and we got to visit the Easter Bunny at both. Levi J was not a Santa fan at Christmas, but the Easter Bunny was his guy. He was talking about the bunny for days.
On Sunday, we had church at 9 am, which is hard enough to manage with a toddler, a barfing mama, and a dad with early bishopric meetings, so we didn't do Easter baskets until after church. Levi J was asking about the Easter Bunny all during church, and I used it to get him to behave during sacrament meeting.
When we got home, I had to do a mad dash to get into the house before Levi J and toss his basket in a semi-hidden spot for him to find. He was thrilled. Even though it was pretty paltry, he was pretty excited. Though he was confused that he could see the bunny at Easter parties but not when the bunny actually came to his house.
And to top off his little boy sweetness, Monday night he busted out this sentence out of the clear blue sky: "Jesus Christ died for us." Awe.
