Here are the eggs we worked on so hard for no more than 29 minutes on Spring Break day one…. it is amazing how fast these soak up color and how quickly little hands can work.
You can see evidence that some egg “dyers” were more gentle than others….
The Easter Bunny came and hid 6 candy filled eggs for each child around the living room, dining room and kitchen. He left some small trinket toys, and books in the girls baskets and Solomon got an all in one tool, everyone was really happy. It is so fun to see children bubbling over with excitement and zest for life!
Each holiday I try to capture all of the kids in a fairly coordinated picture, feel free to view the Christmas Card photo outtakes post from last year. The outfits today were a little more casual (sidenote: Solomon added the velvet blazer and top hat on his own…since he could dress himself he has loved blazers and being fancy) since we were having brunch at my aunt’s house, nothing fancy since she always has some painting crafts for them:
Loud and Proud:
Bunny Ears in your face:
And one with Farley:
After brunch at home Solomon, Jon and I played a game of scrabble and we all just lazed around, it was perfect, the kids played and giggled and Jon and I laid down, digested brunch and listened to our happy family.
Jon and I tucked the kids in and finished our taxes…whew!!! That is a relief to check off the list, especially owing a business, seems to take a lot more number crunching.
That big lug of a dog turns 3 tomorrow, think we should cook him something special?? Anyone have any good doggy reicpes??
