Somehow I managed to take ZERO pictures of the kids in their Sunday Easter clothes, or of their baskets... Whoopsie! Someday I will figure out how to take still shots from our video camera. I did get some pic's of the other fun stuff we did. Boy did we hunt eggs this year. A few days before Easter we had a really sunny day and the kids spent the better part of it hiding and finding eggs. Jensen just started to throw them into the backyard when it was his turn to hide them, I guess the excitement of hiding them wore off a little.
Coloring the eggs was really fun for the kids. I taught them all of the Easter dying tricks I loved as a kid. Jensen was a planner and took a lot more time coloring designs on his eggs before they went into the dye. Ellie on the other hand just wanted all of her eggs in the cups.
Elvis and Eli had a great time hunting eggs at Grandma's get together. She has a huge backyard which makes searching for eggs a little more tricky. Of course the eggs were loaded with candy.. can you tell by Ellie's loaded cheeks?
We went to a couple hunts at the Y. The toddler gym classes do a hunt every year, well it isn't so much a hunt as it is picking up eggs that are spread all over the gymnastics floor. John started a tradition of making pop corn baskets for all of the grand kids. We had left over so he took the kids around the neighborhood delivering yummy baskets. The kids believe that every holiday consists of taking something to the neighbors. Any suggestions for the 4Th of July?
Happy Easter Everyone! It was a great Sunday to reflect on the meaning of Easter and how much the Savior has done for each of us!!
