Happy Easter!

It's 6 PM, and the Pharaons are still in pajamas!  In Kayci's estimation, this has been one of the best days EVER!  :)  We had Easter with all of the Clarksons yesterday at Grandma and Grandpa's, but we came home late last night so Kayci and Noble could have Easter morning at home.  Kayci started lobbying yesterday for a pajama day today, and Noble helped her out by starting to run a fever yesterday evening.  (Yup, we assume it's another ear infection.)  So, here we are.  We slept in fairly late by Pharaon kid standards, so we started our day at 7 AM instead of the usual 5 or 5:30.  (Perhaps that's what Mommy & Daddy got for Easter?!)  We heard Kayci's door open at 7 and James caught her before she started Easter without us, and we all went out to the dining room table together to see what the Easter bunny brought.  Kayci and Noble were both very excited to see the goodies in their baskets.  Kayci had fun a little while later telling her very patient cousins every single thing that the bunny brought, and Noble fell in love with his bubble gun and the various wind-up hopping/walking chicks and bunnies.  (He's discovered wind-ups this Easter season...he'll bring one to you and hit you with it until you realize he wants you to wind it up, then you have to wrestle it away from him so you can wind it...then he snatches it up before it can go very far...over and over and over again...)  

We've had a great day watching movies, taking a nap, spending a bit of time outside with Sami and the swings (in PJs, of course) and just being HOME.  I can't think of the last day we've all been home together, all day, and we've taken time to just BE instead of getting caught up on chores or work or getting things done.  This day has been a blessing, and we're so very grateful for this and all of our blessings.  Happy Easter to you, too--if you're reading this, you're on our list of blessings, as well!  :)
