Easter Fun!

Yesterday we had a lot of fun participating in Easter activities. First we dyed Easter eggs. Despite a few messes, the kids had a lot of fun dying eggs this year. After dying eggs we had an Easter egg hunt. Growing up my Mom always threw the most amazing Easter egg hunts and I have some really great memories from her hunts. I wanted to give my kids the opportunity to participate in an egg hunt this year. I didn't do anything fancy I just hid some plastic eggs with candy and the hard boiled eggs we dyed, and by hid I mean I scattered them around the yard. The kids had a great time collecting their eggs and Jared and I had fun watching them.While the kids were hunting for eggs yesterday Landon noticed that Tori did not have as many eggs as he had so he started picking up eggs and putting them in her bucket for her. It was really sweet and it made me happy that Landon cared so much that Tori got enough Easter eggs.
My friend Lillian was going to take the kids Easter pictures today but much to my dismay the kids are sick, so we are postponing them until next week. So look forward to a post of some cute pictures of the kids in their eater outfits sometime next week.

I am sorry to hear the kids are sick and I hope they feel better soon. They sure look like they had fun with their egg hunt and it also looks like you got the ratio about right. There is nothing better then seeing your kids share with others, especially their own siblings.
