The Easter Bunny made a stop our house this year. The kids are on to his tricks. Elliot found his basket in about 2 seconds and Lucy in 10. Charlie's basket was a little trickier and took at least 1 minute. The kids have already devoured most of the jelly beans, robin eggs and marshmallow bunnies. The boys have made some sweet trades with their new basketball cards. Lucy is having a viewing party of her new Tangled with Elliot. All in all, a successful morning.

Lucy understood this year that the Easter Bunny hides your basket not hides IN your basket. Therefore, there are no frightened pictures, just happy ones.

As an added bonus, Lucy gave a talk in primary today about the resurrection. When I say Lucy gave a talk, I mean she held the picture while Justin gave the talk. And when I say she held the picture, I mean Justin did that too. Happy Easter.

This afternoon we took the kids to our neighbor Easter egg hunt. The kids love it! As they were waiting for the countdown, I began to look around. There were lots of toddlers and preschoolers. Many of Lucy's soccer, school and dance buddies were waiting to storm the field. Upon further inspection, I realized Charlie was one of three first graders. And worse, Elliot was the only 9 year old. When did I become the "older" mom? Yikes!!!!!

I pulled the boys aside and we discussed how to have fun and make sure not to smash the hopes of the young ones by taking all the eggs. Mission accomplished! They had fun and didn't make anyone cry. Now, I must go apply eye cream to help mask my aging face.

It's begun. Baseball has consumed the Spencer household. Elliot pitched for the first time on Saturday. After a rocky start he settled in and struck a couple players out. It ended a little sour, with a few walks. But overall, it was a great first experience. Pitching will definitely teach him to keep his emotions in check. Not too high nor too low. His mother may need a prescription to learn that lesson.
At bat he struck out, hit a pop fly and had a single with an rbi. Look at me and my baseball speak. Impressive, eh? As an added bonus, I'm enjoying baseball. Never thought that would happen.
