Eager for Easter

This year was an especially wonderful Easter.
For one, the weather has been so fabulous! I feel so invigorated by the *Sunshine!
Secondly, I was so proud of my kiddo's for their commitments during Lent. And, because of their commitments (especially my girls), they were super *EAGER for Easter this year!
Will committed to doing setting the table and getting drinks & vitamins every night at dinner without complaint (it is usually one of the girls' jobs)
Abby gave up donuts - this is a hard one when you consider they serve them every Friday morning at *Trojans for Christ.
Ella gave up chocolate - which again, is quite a challenge since our house is always filled with chocolate (Mommy's FAVE) :-)
Ooooh, powdered donuts are so yummy!!!
and oh how scrumptious is a chocolate marshmallow puff!!
Happy Kiddo's :-))
