Easter was nice. Fairly quiet. We went to my mom's for Easter dinner and that's about it. Valerie was thrilled with her Easter goodies. Veronica didn't really notice, lol! The Easter Bunny brought Valerie a play golf set which is a huge hit. We have a TON of candy. A ridiculous amount of candy. I have no idea what we're going to do with it all... The kids don't need to eat that much candy and neither do I for sure!!!

(I SO need to get back on my diet, or at least eating better. I've been eating so much junk lately and I feel it.)

Today is Clint's birthday. The big 4-0!! I remember when 40 seemed so old... so far away. Clint seemed like a young 32 year old kid when I met him, now it's hard to imagine him a 40 year old man, LOL! I got him something he's been wanting for a long, long, time... a TiVo! I think we're probably the only people left who didn't have one already. He was surprised!! I also baked him his annual chocolate cake with banana filling. Clint took a day of vacation today, so we went to Copeland's for lunch. My mom and dad were supposed to come with us but changed their mind at the last minute. Kids were very well behaved at the restaurant for a change. After that, we just hung out around the house all day.

The weather has been just perfect! The kids want to be outside all the time!! Valerie wants to be on her swing set all day. Clint patched the bounce house today, so if it holds that's something else to keep Val busy. It got popped at Val's birthday party way back in December, and he just got around to trying to fix it! I hope it lasts so I don't have to buy a new one. I wouldn't mind the girls wanting to be outside except that I can't get a darn thing done around the house. The house is a mess and I'm behind on clothes and dishes. Valerie is ok to be in the backyard for a little while by herself, but Veronica insists on being out there too!
