Ok, so I bought it big, hoping he could wear it next year
At least I  took the hood off so it didn't completely suffocate him!

Easter Sunday 2003

Hardy Family plans for Easter weekend....

Friday- The "Tulip Festival"
Saturday Morning- Easter Egg Hunt and pancake breakfast in town
Saturday Afternoon- plant flowers in Mommy's flower beds
Sunday- Awsumb's first day of Jr. Nursery at Church
Family Dinner - Mommy's special Lamb Stew

Actual Itinerary...

Friday- Go to the doctor. After 3 days of the tummy flu Awsumb was mildly dehydrated
Saturday- Clean and sanitize everything in the house!
Continue giving Awsumb water through a syringe and try to get Awsumb to eat some crackers.
Sunday- rewash everything that Awsumb got sick on the night before!
Continue trying to get Awsumb to drink water, but still resorting to the syringe!

Actually Sunday Awsumb did start to look a bit better.  He said more than just a couple of words and even got up and walked around a bit.  Awsumb was excited to play with his new little duck sent by Gpa and Gma Awsumb.  He even added the word "duck" to his vocabulary.  We decided to go outside and blow bubbles and even take a walk since it was warm outside.
Awsumb wanted to make the bubbles himself,
but ended up eating the wand!

In this picture you can see
Mommy's first try at cutting Awsumb's hair.
