How adorable is this picture?!! Believe it or not, I didn’t “pose” him, and, believe it or not, I took the picture! We had quite a time finding an Easter Bunny with which to pose, however. On Thursday, I decided to take Frank up to the Galleria to see the Easter Bunny. I had been at NorthPark Mall the day before and had not seen a Bunny there. So, we went to the Galleria — which, until then, I still considered to be a real mega-mall — but there was no Bunny to be found. We strolled the whole mall to no avail. Genius that I am, I decided to inquire at Nordstrom’s customer service desk. They confirmed that there was no mall Bunny (why? unclear), but they told me Nordstrom was having an Easter Bunny up in kids’ shoes on Friday and Saturday. Friday morning, between the morning nap and lunch, we raced back up to the Galleria. However, in all my rush, I forgot to put Frank’s shoes on him and I accidentally parked on the wrong level…anyway, by the time we got inside, I was bumfuzzled to say the least. I think my photography that day reflects as much:
As several (hundred) of you pointed out on Facebook, it appears the Bunny is attempting to take a chunk out of Frank’s head, and Frank appears rightfully nervous about that. And, he’s shoeless. I mean, I am from Arkansas, but this is his Easter picture for crying out loud! In any event, I dragged Frank (and Heath, too) back to Nordstrom on Saturday (so, third trip to the Galleria in as many days, if you are counting). This time, I dressed him in his super cute Ralph Lauren button-down and sweater vest combo, crisp khaki chinos, and his tan and white saddle oxfords. V. Cute! He and the Bunny were old friends by this time, and he climbed on up and started petting her (yes, the Nordstrom Bunny was a lady!) and doing his signature head-tilt. And, thanks to modern technology and the brilliance of point and shoot cameras, I got the perfect shot!
We had a great Easter on Sunday. Frank loved opening his Easter Basket while we were getting ready for church.
And, even Daddy couldn’t deny how cute he was in his first Easter suit!
After church, we had a great brunch with the extended Dixon clan at Glen Eagles Country Club in Plano. Then, we went back over to Uncle Jack and Aunt Trisha’s house for the hunting of eggs and the eating of sugar cookies. Ok, Frank didn’t do either of those things. Mommy did one of them. And I bet you can guess which one. We hope you and your family had a great Easter too!
