"Oh, this is because I had a CANDY DREAM last night"
Dashing and dancing, they found all twenty-eight eggs in less then a half hour. During that time, Matilda found their Easter baskets. Sebastian came running over. When he saw a giant Easter Bunny made out of marshmallow, he exclaimed, "Oh, this is because I had a candy dream last night". He was so gleeful and happy that it just made my heart soar. He then proceeded to tell me the whole dream. Precious.
When the fun of all that was over, we had lunch. I always like to listen to the conversations between the two children. The subject of the Easter Bunny came up. " Was he magic?" "Yes indeed, answered Matilda. "Just like Santa Claus". She said it was easier to be the Easter bunny cause he could jump and run.
Worn out by this time with all the excitement and also having taken time to ride their bikes in the garden, the idea to climb up on Grammy's bed to watch cartoons sounded great to all! They always want to get up on my bed for a while - each and every visit. They love the bunny soft blanket which they pull up on themselves whether it's hot or cold outside. On this day, Dad joined them as well. They love to look at all their cousins photos behind the pillow on the shelf and to count how many photos there are of themselves. Each and every time!
What wonderful memories children and grandchildren provide to enrich our lives. The big kiss and hug when they arrive and leave always leaves me with a lump in my throat.......Every time!
