Easter Festivities

Happy Easter!  Brett's Easter excitement started a few weeks ago with a DSG event.  Brett wasn't a fan of the Easter bunny and was in a hurry to get off his lap. 

At the DSG event Brett was able to meet Rachel Coleman of Signing Times.  He was a little star struck.  This was his first celebrity encounter and he wasn't really sure how to act.  Hopefully, he'll be able to take his eyes of the next celebrity he meets long enough for a picture.    

The Easter fun continued today with an egg hunt at the church. 

So many eggs!  Where do I start? 

Here is a nice blue egg. 

Oh wait, I see another egg I want.  Orange perhaps (Brett has professed his love for the color orange)!?!

Pink, even better! 

After the egg hunt was over, we headed out to meet the Easter bunny.  Brett still wasn't real impressed with the guy, so I jumped in to stall the tears.  Take note, the pink egg traveled with us. 

Finally, we headed to the gym for some dancing. 

Brett decided it was time for a rest and sat down with some eggs.  However, the eggs were not enough.  He gave the other kids some pretty good "share with me" eyes and they handed over a spoon.   

Unfortunately, no one told Brett the spoon was only for pretending and not actually eating. 

Somewhere in the confusion Brett misplaced his pink egg and was left with a yellow.  Not quite the same, but Brett was still excited to show it off.

Don't worry, we found the pink egg just before we left and Brett has been playing with it all afternoon.

Some Advice From Dad

First off, make sure you save before you close a blog post... if you dont, you have to retype it again.

Secondly, when buying a house... take everything you can get when closing.

Erin and I bought our house a couple of years ago.  The couple that lived in the house before us had a 2 year old daughter.  While going back and forth on closing the sale of the house it was mentioned that they could leave all of the child proofing items in the house for us.  Like a dummy, I told them to go ahead and take that stuff with them.  I could just imagine every time I tried to open a drawer or cabinet having to fight some child lock.  Sure enough, a few days after closing on the house we find out that Erin is pregnant.  Needless to say I was a very happy individual... up until this week.  Brett decided that he would start crawling, which is an amazing thing and makes me smile every time he wobbles across the floor... but it also made me realize that I now need to go spend a hundred bucks or so childproofing the house.  So, in closing, I would like to say that if you have the opportunity to get something for "free"... take it.  You never know when something as simple as a child lock will save you some cash.

Oh and by the way... Brett has his own style of "army" crawling.
