Easter Treats

Everything has been so busy with Grandma that I forgot to tell you about Easter!!

Easter morning was a blast with Noah. Both of us were excited to see what the Easter Bunny had left. I headed down the stairs first (I am a little faster since I have 4 legs - I can skip stairs better). I hopped on the couch to find that the Easter Bunny had brought me a new bag of treats. I was so excited and eager to have Daddy open them.

Noah was very excited to see his new dump truck, sand bucket and shovels, ball, pjs, snacks and new duckie towel. He is such a boy and went straight for his snacks.

The morning was spent at church then a WONDERFUL lunch at Momma Gena's house. The whole family was there!! Uncle Mike and Aunt Barbara came up from Clanton, Aunt Jennifer, Uncle Paul and Jake also joined us for lunch. Nina and Papaw had lunch with Aunt Dorinda but then came to Momma Gena's house for dessert. After lunch, the fam enjoyed time together on the patio. Daddy hid some eggs for Noah and Jake to search for. He even thought he would be smart and hide a special egg just for me. HA - I am smarter than the average beagle and found it instantly!! He rubbed a treat all over an egg and then buried it in one of my favorite smelling spots. Come on Dad, give a girl some credit and a little more challenge!! BOL! I found the egg before Daddy could get off of the porch.

Noah and Jake enjoyed their egg hunt. Noah seemed to pick up the eggs a little better than Jake but he couldn't comprehend to keep the eggs in his bucket. Both found a lot of eggs - each finding one with ice cream money in it.

Noah did discover something new - GrandDanny's concrete gutter drain. Poor thing - he thought it was a slide. Took Daddy a few minutes to figure out what he was doing ... he would sit on it and scoot his bottom down it. Mommy was worried about his Easter outfit - then it dawned on Daddy that Noah thought it was a slide. He remembered it from our day at the park a couple of weeks ago. Noah LOVES to slide!!

Mommy has decided that she is going to buy Noah a slide in a couple of weeks. He will have a blast on it.

Mommy, Daddy and Noah headed off to Leeds to see Nanny. They enjoyed time with her and even had a yummy dinner there. I didn't get to go - Buddy still scares the poop out of me every time. I spent the afternoon with Momma Gena and enjoyed some valuable lap time.

And that was our Easter day. I hope that yours was just as enjoyable with some much needed family time. But most of all, I hope that you took the time to realize what Easter is really all about. Yes, Noah and I love that the Easter Bunny brought us goodies, but it is the fact that Jesus gave us ETERNITY!! What better gift could we receive?!?!?!?!

And that's just the dog's life!
