Alexa Visits Flat Stanley in Massachusetts

You know that Flat Stanley was quite the prankster yesterday, we were all gearing up for the big April Fool’s pranks.  But the biggest prank of all was played on Flat Stanley!

Last night, we told Flat Stanley that the Easter Bunny was coming for a visit.  He was so excited, he hopped like a bunny around the living room and wiggled his little nose.  “What does the easter bunny smell like?” Flat Stanley asked.  “I know!” he said, answering his own question; “CANDY!!!”

Well later in the afternoon, sure enough the doorbell rings.  DING DONG.  Flat Stanley’s mouth opened wide, “He’s here!! Or is it a She?” He opened the door, just a crack at first to take a peek, and then IN HOPS the Easter Bunny!!!  The prank came when the easter bunny lifted the head off of her costume and Flat Stanley saw it was really ALEXA!  It was a she!  Nana and Papa’s granddaughter Alexa came up from Virginia to spend Easter with Flat Stanley in Massachusetts!  Flat Stanley was so excited!

They went out to the chicken coop first and Flat Stanley introduced Alexa to all of the chickens and let her help in giving them their treats and fresh water.

Later that night, they decorated EASTER Eggs!  They have so much fun when they get to visit each other!  Look at how they both glow with joy when they share time together.

“Tadahhhhh” Flat Stanley said, when his were all finished.

This is Nana’s favorite.  Look at how smitten she is.  She loves her Flat Stanley.  Nana loves them both so very much.  I’m so glad Alexa came to visit us!

After the eggs were all colored and a treat for the REAL easter bunny was “layed” on the table, everyone went upstairs to read their bedtime stories and go to sleep for the night.

In the morning, guess what?!  YUP!!  It was EASTER!

 Yeah!  What a beautiful day!  Happy Easter!!

When Nana and Papa came downstairs, they went out with the kids to hunt for Easter Eggs!

 Good LUCK!  The bunny knew it was April Fool’s Day too and hid WHITE Easter Eggs in the WHITE snow!!!  Haha.. not really, April Fool’s to you!!!  Flat Stanley and Alexa wanted to play this silly joke on you.  Actually, the snow has melted and we’re starting to see little crocus flowers blooming in pretty yellow and purple!  But if white eggs had been hidden…phwew they would have been REALLY hard to find in the snow last week!

Hunting for eggs was fun with Flat Stanley.  Alexa would see an egg under a bush or in a really tight fitting place that she couldn’t reach, but Flat Stanley would squeeze his flat self in to get the egg for Alexa.  They got a nice basket of eggs together from very well hidden places.  It was a fun Easter morning for all of us.

Nana came inside because she wanted eggs for breakfast.  She wanted Papa’s really good scrambled eggs.  So, as usual, she got his pan, butter and eggs out.. but then an idea came to her.  She saw the WOODEN (but VERY real looking eggs) she keeps in a jar on the window sill.

 …and now we wait for Papa to come downstairs and try to crack the wooden eggs into the pan.  I’ll try to have my camera ready…tehe.  It’s going to be a FUN day with the combination of BOTH Easter AND April Fool’s Day all wrapped up in one big pretty bow!

We love you Alexa and we’re SO Happy that you got to share this Easter Morning with us in Massachusetts (wink wink)!

We hope you enjoy a wonderful Easter with your family and that you smile a lot today.  If Flat Stanley brought a smile to your face, please SUBSCRIBE so that Nana can send you a smile the next time a new Flat Stanley Adventure is posted!!
