As you can see by the picture on the right, tulips are a favorite of mine, red tulips especially. When we stopped at Wegman's yesterday I couldn't resist a bouquet or two of tulips. This morning we noticed this "two-headed" tulip.
I have to admit that Easter is not one of my favorite holidays, but having a 10 year old in the house makes it a day for egg coloring, egg hunts and a present or two. Alexa announced she wanted to have a scavenger hunt for Easter morning so the Easter Bunny managed to hide a dozen plastic eggs for her to find.
I try to go easy on the candy as Alexa likes it too much and we have "cavity issues" with her. So I made up a make-up tote (one of her passions) and filled it with all kinds of things including Peeps, her favorites (Norman's too!) Then I made the mistake of telling Alexa about Mom's new blog. She wants editorial approval on anything that includes her - pictures, stories, etc. When I told her that it was my blog and while I'm not going to embarrass her (right!) I wasn't going to totally omit her from my entries. She stormed off in her usual pout -- and came back 5 minutes later with pictures she had taken of her Easter loot - for me to post on the blog!
I hope everyone has a blessed and hoppy Easter!
