This is the Easter Bunny with his mama. Thank you, Marina, for raising such a fine boy. (I just can't say "man".) Not many college guys would be willing to dress up in a bunny suit (twice!) and then encompass the role with such ZEAL!! Gabbi loves the Easter bunny. Have I mentioned that? Well, just you wait. You are going to hear a whole lot more about that!
Madison and Madeline thought he was pretty cool too.
I know I have mentioned it, but it is soooo worth saying again. Ok, how many of you actually KNOW my Gabbi? If you do, you will realize that what I am saying is BIG. Really BIG! She LOVED that rabbit. L-O-V-E-D him! Gabbi is a mama's girl. And I mean almost pathologically!
Some of you know what I mean when you have one of those babies who would just as soon be back in your womb (no one has told her yet!) than out living amongst the peeps. Well, that is Gabbi!
If I am anywhere in the vicinity, and she sees me, it is a beeline to mama! And that is where she plants and stays! She won't even go to daddy. And.... if any of you have a child like this, you know that sometimes it is quite beneficial for daddy to just say, "Well, she doesn't want me", when you are begging him to take her for a minute, so you can, ohhhhh, I don't know... wipe?!
Well, when she was with the Easter Bunny, she had NOTHING to do with MAMA! She would actually shun me and tell me "no" when I tried to give HIM a break! It was a miracle! I do not know what it was about him... had to be the suit!
But, just know. I am having one of these made in Todd's size!
And here is our little hostess. Maddi Boo had been talking about "my party". When I ask her what kind of party, she would say, "My Easter Party."
My Gabbi Girl. So precious.
I guess Ellie Sue was taking care of her baby sister. She had both of their baskets, toting them around all proud-like.
As usual, there was a good turnout at the party. This is the starting gate! We had activities for them to do prior to the big, "GO!!". Because there were kids of all ages, we asked the big ones to run all the way down to the bottom of the hill so the babies could find the eggs near the house.
and awwwwaaaaaay they went!
Madeline stopped to admire the decorations and the goodies that were prizes for the prize eggs.
And thanks to you who complimented my bunny face painting. Jessi began the trend at the MMPT parties. She was the main bunny face painter, and I just rode her coattails. For some reason, Ellie didnt' want to partake in the face painting on Round 2 of the egg hunts. She wore hers proudly at the MMPT hunt though. Pics from that are pending. Or... if you know h0w, you can join the Melanie Massey Physical Therapy fan page on Facebook and see some of the pics (not mine) already!
Good Ol Uncle Eddie. Always there to help a sista out when she needs a lift on the slide. Gabbi could climb up the slide, but she headed down face first every single attempt. Not that she minded! But, we all preferred to not see her faceplant! Thanks for being the back up adult for Gabbi's fun, Uncle E.
By day's end, you can imagine, the babies were whipped! And they had to go to beddy bye because the Easter Bunny was on his way! And this was going to be a big night. He was taking all the bottles in our house and giving them to his baby bunnies. We don't need them anymore. (Right, Ellie?!)
