I realized I was going to type something like, "I'm not much into the Christian thing," but that's squishy. Let me be clear: I'm not Christian. It was funny this morning during the children's story--the minister was showing the kids different pictures of Jesus, none of which Maybelle was familiar with. She turned around, pointed to my shirt, and whispered "Princess Leia." I gotta say, Leia's a bit more of a celebrated figure around this house.
At any rate, we got to have all the fun of the Easter holiday yesterday and today. Last night Trey and I dyed eggs, and this morning Maybelle put stickers on them.
Then at church this morning there was an Easter egg hunt. Maybelle's taken part in this for the last two years, but this was the first year she actually cared.
She gathered a bunch of eggs, and then she examined (from afar) the three goats who were there, and she gave a quick pat to one rabbit.
And here's how you do it up at Easter: they had a chocolate fountain, and a plate of Rice Krispie squares on sticks that you could hold under the cascading chocolate. Maybelle wasn't interested, but I was.
