Happy Easter! This morning I was sleeping in my room when Boomer came in and started licking my hand which was hanging off my bed.
I slowly opened my eyes. I don't usually like to wake up to dog slobber, but at least Boomer didn't jump up on the bed and lick my face! Yuck! I hate when he does that!
And then I remembered it was Easter morning! I looked at the foot of my bed to see what the Easter Bunny had left in my bucket.
Hot dog! My bucket was almost full! And there was some stuff next to it, too!
It was 2 bubble wands shaped like a chick and a butterfly! And inside my bucket was a bottle of bubbles! Outta site! There was also a flat dish to put the bubble stuff in.
I reached into the bucket again and pulled out...Snoopy! It was a little Snoopy figurine holding an Easter basket! Hey! It was just like the TV special "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown"! All right!
Boomer came over to check it out. Every time I get some kind of a toy dog, my pooch gets jealous! He's such a silly puppy!
I also got 2 stampers, 2 large chocolate bunnies and 2 small chocolate bunnies. I didn't get any eggs 'cos Mom said after church this morning, there was gonna be an egg hunt on the school playground. Yippee!
Mom laid out my Easter dress , shoes and a new hair ribbon the night before. Isn't my dress pretty?
So after church I met Stephanie, Melody, Wendy, April and Robyn on the school playground. We were all so excited!
Melody and Robyn found some eggs by the monkey bars.
April and Wendy found a couple more on the bleachers.
I found some on the see-saw! Lucky me!
Stephanie found some on the ladder of the slide! I never thought to look there!
Melody had only found one egg, and she was just about to give up, when I pointed out one by the tether ball to her.
Robyn found the last egg near the basketball hoop.
All of us found 2 eggs each. I'm glad it worked out fair. But I don't think any of us would have it any other way, even if someone found no eggs, we'd still share. Friends aren't friends if they're stingy!
Later on, back at my house, my mom invited Robyn's family over for Easter dinner. Robyn and I went outside to the front steps to play with my new bubble set while Mrs. Brooks and my mom got dinner ready.
One landed on my nose!
Then a bubble landed on Robyn's nose! We both busted out laughing!
After dinner we all watched "Jesus Christ Superstar". My auntie knows the guy who played Judas. We were having a great time singing to the music. I always cry when they put Jesus on the cross. The only thing about that movie I don't like is they don't show the happy part when Jesus is risen from the dead. But we know that's the best part, even if it isn't in the movie.
It was a really super day. I love Easter because not only do we get candy and eggs, but it's the celebration of new life. My mom says every morning when we wake up to a new day, it's a chance to celebrate how great life is. I hope you of the future celebrate life too! Happy Easter, future readers!
Until next time,
