It's Not Easter Without A Sumo Chicken

Somehow I managed to catch Laura's germs, and I've spent the last few days feeling horrible. I'm not sure how I managed to get sick, since all I did was lay in bed with Laura and clean up her messes while she was sick. Amazing how these things happen! I was shocked by the extreme pain-I expected it to be more of a nauseating sickness, but it was actual, legitimate pain. That made me feel even worse for Laura, knowing she had gone through all of that. I only share all that to explain why our Easter pictures are a bit lacking. We just didn't have too much energy this morning.

Laura loved her Easter basket, and we did our egg hunt indoors to keep it calm. Our Easter Bunny loves to bring toys and her favorite was a little toy fishing pole which she played with all day today. I even managed to find a pink version of the "Sumo Chicken" that I have bought for her Easter basket the last 2 years. The Army Man named these little chickens as such because while their size is deceptively small, they pack quite a punch. Especially when the thrower of the Sumo Chicken lies in wait, hiding, only to jump out at the last moment and throw the chicken at you while yelling "SUMO CHICKEN!" at the top of their lungs. That's not too weird, right? I've heard that other families do things like that....I think.

We hope you all had a wonderful day today! Laura's spring break starts tomorrow, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we both survive.

Sumo Chicken sounds like a dangerous object. Now I can't come visit you for fear of being attacked!

I see Laura is sporting a very pretty dress from the famous label Laurora.

The caption on the death ray picture caused me to laugh. I thought her expression was funny, but I didn't know how to describe it. The combination of the glaring with the "evil" smile couldn't be anything other than death rays, now that you have brought it to my attention.

I am sorry to hear you were sick.

Sorry to report that I didn't make that dress! I wish I had though, it is so cute. We bought it quite a while ago (at Target of all places) and she insisted on wearing it.

Don't worry too much about being attacked by the Sumo Chicken. I seem to be the only one that ever gets attacked by it. Not quite sure why that is.
