Happy Easter!

Coloring Eggs...

We had more fun than it shows in these pictures :) The first batch of egg dye didn't come out quite right. It was an off brand and I also used white wine vinegar, could have been one of these reasons but the colors just were not right! Connor and I made a quick run to the grocery store for new Egg dye. This time around we stuck with PAAS, the good and familiar. We also picked up a few Easter goodies.. Peeps, chocolate/marshmellow bunnies, etc.. now we were ready! We also listened to a PBS special on John Denver while we were doing our eggs. I always forget how much I like him.







Easter Morning.. Alex came in around 6am dragging Connor behind him. Both looked very tired but Alex was anxious to check out his Easter basket. Connor wanted to go back to bed. I told a disappointed Alex to give us until 6:30. They went back to bed. Of course then we were awake but it was nice to relax for a few more minutes. And yes they are wearing the same clothes they had on the night before!



Mark made Biscuits and gravy for breakfast and the boys got a little silly at the table...




We actually had a lot of fun hiding and hunting Easter eggs... We did several hunts, We all took turns hiding and hunting. We even had some timed contests. It's been a long day and it's not even lunch time!

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter!!!

I love how your hubs got in on the silliness! LOL

The egg designs they made were really great! I've always used Paas too, but this year I used food coloring and was surprised how well it worked.
