The Easter Bunny was very good to Arielle this year and she was quite thankful! Mommy and Daddy let her eat candy pretty much all day because taking it away from her after giving it to her just didn't seem fair. She really did eat it in moderation though and always asked before she ate it. I wasn't surprised when I picked her up from school on Monday and she held her stomach and told me she had a stomachace. I think all the sugar caught up with her little body and just couldn't handle it anymore. She went home and laid on the couch for about an hour than proclaimed that she wasn't sick anymore and asked for another piece of candy!
We dyed eggs again this year. Mixing colors wasn't as big of a priority as putting her fingers in the dye. They turned a greenish/brownish color and it didn't was out for the next 24 hours. Despite the mild snowstorm on Easter Eve, Arielle's first egg hunt was a success as well. We decided to have it indoors so Zak hid eggs in every nook and cranny. She enjoyed having the neighbor's grandaughters over to join in the hunt and was very amused by it all. She even found a hidden egg the next day so it seemed as if the fun never ended for her! In the true nature of someone that shares my genes, Arielle immediately began sorting her eggs after the hunt. She chose to do this over making a craft which to me shows that she will be following in her mom's footsteps along the path of OCD.
