Happy Easter

We had a fine Easter. The bunny didn't realize that Easter was so soon, so we ended up going shopping on Sat. night to find candy and such. It was amazing to us that all Wal-Mart had left at 8pm on Saturday night, was easter grass and peeps. That's it!! We have a ton of plastic eggs, so we just needed to get filling for them. We were "forced" to use the regular candy aisle, and were able to find plenty of chocolate there...it just wasn't pastel colors or covered with rabbits and ducks, and it was also reasonably priced. Instead of chocolate bunnies, we got the kids those giant candy bars, which worked out just as well. Hopefully, Easter will be in April next year, and it won't sneak up on us!

We don't have church until 1pm...which seems like plenty of time to get ready to go, but we were racing at the last min. to get there on time and this is the only picture I took of their easter clothes. We are always on time, I just apperently prefer to push everything into the final minutes.....

We also didn't have any easter baskets. After rummaging through the easter box from the garage, I realized that for the last few years, we have bought the kids sand pails to gather eggs in, and all of those are too dirty or broken to bring in the house and put candy in. Oh well, we had kind of a red neck egg hunt, but the kids really didn't care...they got tons of candy, and that is all they cared about anyway. Isaiah and London got painting books, Caleb got a Boba Fett transformer, and Brooklin got three word puzzle/cryptogram/seek and find books.

So how do the paint book's work?

The paint books are really cool. They only paint on the pages, and they are not messy. The paint is clear until the liquid touches the paper, and then the color shows up, kind of like the color wonder finger paints...but the finger paints are really messy. It is like finger painting with vaseline...so I wouldn't suggest that one, but the color wonder markers and these elmer's paints are awesome.

Maybe I will have to get one of those for Alyssa for her birthday cause she loves to color.

Dar's mom made the heart quilt for us. She brought it up here to teach me how to do some of the steps.
