I have a feeling most of my posts are going to be photo posts over this Spring Break. So here we go...
Saturday began with getting our egg coloring mojo on....
The swirly egg was done by using rubber cement on the egg before coloring it and then peeling it off. I loved this idea that was brought to my attention by the blog full of all types of great ideas Be Different Act Normal
Saturday night I put the girls hair up in Bunnies . I learned of this idea awhile ago from the lovely Springrose whose blog for some reason did not get put into my Google reader and I've been missing out!
I had to do McKenna's in much bigger bunnies because she likes bigger curls and I was in a hurry because Ty and I had to leave for the adult session of our Stake Conference that night.
Jillian's hair worked out really well. McKenna's was still damp and I didn't have time to put a blow dryer to it because we were heading out the door to Stake Conference. The girls slept much better in them than they do in curlers and it doesn't take nearly as long to get them in either. We'll definitely be doing this again.
Sunday morning the kids woke up to the Easter stuff in the living room. We had Stake Conference at 10:00 a.m. so they were only allowed a couple of pieces of chocolate. Here they are in all their Easter finery.
Why, you ask is Jillian so sad in this picture? Because I had threatened to take away her chocolate bunny because she wasn't cooperating for picture taking. Yes I'm a mean mother.And in this one she is laughing because George knows how to make her laugh. Which is good.It was a very nice day. We were able to visit with all the grandmas and grandpas and had a fun Easter egg hunt over at Grandma Connie and Grandpa Scott's house with all of the cousins. This is Ty's side of the family. Here's a picture of all but the two littlest cousins after the hunting was over.
It was a good weekend. Today we have a yard cleanup scheduled at my mom's house and a hot dog roast and Easter egg hunt with my side of the family. Should be fun.
Tomorrow it's supposed to start to rain and Wednesday and Thursday the bottom is supposed to drop out of the temperatures. Record cold. Thanks a lot Mother Nature. I think we have a museum trip and hopefully the dollar theater will be open for Matinees.
I'm going to try roasting a Peep over the fire tonight to see how that turns out. I'll let you know.
