Ethan woke up this morning with a little cough and as he would say, "I am sick and I need to watch movies and drink bubbly juice!" His tears were convincing and I propped him up on the couch with "bubbly juice" (Sprite, Gatorade, and water) and popped in a movie.
After the movie we made clothespin horses because "H" is for horse! We got the idea from Wild Animal Babies, a magazine that his Grammie gets for him (they have such GREAT craft ideas... you can find the horse pattern here ). I could tell he was feeling a bit better because he was down-right crazy fun! When we had cleaned up after the horses, I introduced him to the resurrection eggs and HE LOVED THEM! We have gone through the eggs a dozen times... and he is picking up on the Easter story... and I love that! Easter is such a special time of the year and I want him to understand WHY it is so special! We also spent a lot of time playing a borrowed game "Don't Break the Ice"... gotta add that to the wish list! It was so fun to have a "sick" morning with Ethan... Eden even gave us a special gift by sleeping extra long - so we had plenty of one-on-one time!
