Easter morning started out a bit glum. It was raining out and our neighbor and good friend Leonard (where we keep our horse) came over to use Sam's phone and we could tell right away something was wrong. Saturday there was an accident with some big machinery (sorry, don't remember what it was called). His wife Tammy was out helping and got her leg caught and had a huge chunk of her calf cut and torn almost clean off......like her calf flap was just hanging down......and another deep gash in her thigh. It could have ended FAR worse had the machine not jammed up. Leonard rushed her to the hospital in town, where he was told they could do nothing for her (don't even get me started on that) so she was taken by ambulance to Portland. She's there recovering now and hopefully will be home soon. Please think happy thoughts for her! I can't imagine how scary that must have been.
Since it was raining, the Easter Bunny wasn't able to hide his eggs outside. He....or shall I say I......had to hide both the real and candy filled eggs in the house while the kids were busy eating a delicious breakfast Sam made. It was fun. :) Anthony could hardly contain himself when he finished eating and saw a few eggs hidden around the house. Once Molly was done with breakfast, it was go time. It took her all of 5 seconds to get the jist of what she was suppose to do. Both kids ran around the house all giddy finding their eggs. It was soooooo cute!

The kids' Easter Baskets
Opening up the baskets our friend Lori sent. :) The chalk, playdough, and bubbles were a hit! THANKS!
Opening up the baskets filled with goodies from the Easter Bunny!
Their chocolate bunnies and coloring books from Grandpa.
After baskets we prepped stuff for dinner and cleaned up the house. The rain eventually stopped and the sun came out so we jumped at the opportunity to take a few family photos like I had been hoping to do. After, the kids ran around playing with their new outside toys while I helped Sam fix something on his car. The day ended with a DELICIOUS dinner of broccoli, potatoes, steak, and jello with whipped cream. Leonard came back over for dinner because we didn't want him to be alone. It was awesome to have some company. We all had a few drinks and ate and then played "animal shoot" as Anthony likes to call it (Big Game Hunter on Wii, haha). Hope everyone had a nice Easter as well!
