Easter 2011

cori gets pooped on :)

We had a fabulous Easter weekend spent with Family and Friends!!! It started on Friday with Doug, Lauri and Ronnie in town from MN. Keaton really enjoyed playing with his older cousin and sharing a few of his favorite things to do in Boise. We visited the park, played some baseball, went to McDonald's for lunch, then headed to Mike's work for a visit with the Easter bunny. After that Keaton wanted to take Ronnie to his favorite restaurant where you "catch shrimp in your mouth". The boys had a blast and all of the adults enjoyed watching them have fun. After that we colored some easter eggs at the house (photos to come).
On Saturday we hung around the house and Doug helped Mike with some home improvement stuff. The ladies lunched and then we all (the kids and older kids) headed to the Wongs for their annual easter egg hunt party for the kids. Oh and Katie surprised the fam and flew into town for a short visit. We all had a fabulous time at the Wongs and enjoyed the sunny weather we were lucky to have that day. We ended the day with a movie night at the house and an Aunt Kiki sleep over.
The next morning (bright and early) the Easter bunny made a visit it our house and we did a quick easter egg hunt and basket opening before we headed off to Church. After Church we went to Nana and Papa's for Easter Brunch (and we were joined by Brandie) - photos to come. It was a very nice weekend spent with lots of my favorite people.

Because it made me laugh...

and well because it is fitting with our pending arrival.

Here is Tina Fey's

The Mother’s Prayer for It’s Daughter

First, Lord: No tattoos. May neither Chinese symbol for truth nor Winnie-the-Pooh holding the FSU logo stain her tender haunches.

May she be Beautiful but not Damaged, for it’s the Damage that draws the creepy soccer coach’s eye, not the the Beauty.

When the Crystal Meth is offered,
May she remember the parents who cut her grapes in half
And stick with Beer.

Guide her, protect her
When crossing the street, stepping onto boats, swimming in the ocean, swimming in pools, walking near pools, standing on the nearby subway platform, crossing 86th Street, stepping off of boats, using mall restrooms, getting on and off escalators, driving on country roads while arguing, leaning on large windows, walking in parking lots, riding Ferris wheels, roller-coasters, log flumes, or anything called “Hell Drop,” “Tower of Torture,” or “The Death Spiral Rock N’ Zero G Roll featuring Aerosmith,” and standing on any kind of balcony ever, anywhere, at any age.

Lead her away from Acting but not all the way to Finance.
Something where she can make her own hours but still feel intellectually fulfilled and get outside sometimes And not have to wear high heels.

What would that be, Lord? Architecture? Midwifery? Golf course design? I’m asking You because if I knew, I’d be doing it, Youdammit.

May she play the Drums to the fiery rhythm of her Own Heart with the sinewy strength of her Own Arms, so she need Not Lie With Drummers.

Grant her a Rough Patch from twelve to seventeen.
Let her draw horses and be interested in Barbies for much too long,
For Childhood is short- a Tiger Flower blooming
Magenta for one day-
And Adulthood in long and Dry-Humping in Cars will wait.

O Lord, break the Internet forever,
That she may be spared the misspelled invective of her peers
And the online marketing campaign for Rape Hostel V: Girls Just Wanna Get Stabbed.

And when she one day turns on me and calls me a Bitch in front of Hollister,
Give me the strength, Lord, to yank her directly into a cab in front of her friends,
For I will not have that Shit. I will not have it.

And should she choose to be a Mother one day, be my eyes, Lord,
That I may see her, lying on a blanket on the floor at 4:50 a.m., all-at-once exhausted,
bored, and in love with the little creature whose poop is leaking up its back.
“My mother did this for me once,” she will realize as she cleans feces off her baby’s neck.
“My mother did this for me.” And the delayed gratitude will wash over her as it does each generation and she will make a Mental note to call me. And she will forget.
But I’ll know, because I peeped it with Your God eyes.
