Easter at Nonna and Papaw's

IMG_5346.jpg
As I mentioned, we headed to Nonna and Papaw's for dinner.
And more eggs.

Since we didn't make it to church, we dressed up to get a photo or two in our Easter finest. As you will see, LM wasn't so keen on this idea.

The sun was in a horrible place when we arrived.

Me and the boy.

Family shot. Light was horrible.

The other kids were all in a good mood for photos.

Four happy kids and one stink eye.
Oh well.

IMG_5400.jpg
We changed out of dress clothes and checked out baskets from Nonna and Papaw and the cousins.

Then we ate!

IMG_5416.jpg
I tried my hand at deviled eggs for the first time.
They were yummy!

While the adults finished up their meal, Uncle Mark read books.

Then it was time for the egg hunt. YAY!

There were just a few eggs...

There was some parent assistance needed.

IMG_5473.jpg
Nonna and Papaw looked on!

IMG_5475.jpg
We filled the eggs with stuff other than candy.
But there was still some sugar available - LM honed in on that right away.

Then we just had fun playing in the front yard!

Easter Day

On Easter, we did not go to church. S was coming down with what turned out to be the full blown flu. LM and I had flu shots and did not catch it. S will get his shot next year. We did, however, after the morning rain, do a quick afternoon egg hunt at our house and then go over to the in-laws house for dinner. S was puny the whole time, but we went anyway. Here are some photos:

His baskets.

We checked those out right after we woke up.

IMG_5242.jpg
We often have imaginary boo boos these days.
So we can use band-aids.

Charlie received some new clothes - a super hero outfit and some pajamas.
They get taken off just as often as his old outfit.

Making sticker faces - and naked Charlie in the background.

And here are some photos from our home egg hunt after nap time.

It was a good haul.

Tomorrow - some photos from Nonna and Papaw's house.

See you soon.

More Egg Matters

IMG_5196.jpg
So we tried our hand at dying eggs this year. 
I boiled the eggs and the LM did the rest, mostly.

IMG_5198.jpg
We did not have enough patience to let the eggs dye well.

IMG_5200.jpg
But we had fun all the same.

IMG_5201.jpg
Pink/red was the only really good color.

IMG_5202.jpg
Daddy offered up all sorts of devices for collecting the eggs out of the dye

IMG_5205.jpg
Our friend Ms. Karen stopped by during the egg fun!

IMG_5206.jpg

IMG_5207.jpg
Pay no attention to the stacks of bins back there.
No attention at all. One day we'll get a plan together to move them.

IMG_5209.jpg

IMG_5211.jpg
Ms. Karen made egg dying more fun!

IMG_5215.jpg

IMG_5216.jpg
Look at all those - ahem - "dyed" eggs! Ha.

IMG_5218.jpg
A good holiday activity, I'd say!

Later this afternoon, the boy and I will fly to Indy for a fun long weekend with our Indiana family. LM has been looking forward to this for weeks. He can't wait - when you bring it up, he just giggles with delight. Me too, of course. Me too. 

See you soon.
