Easter fun!

Happy Easter!!!
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead"
1 Peter 1:3

(doesn't this make you wanna a bunny?
So you can pose them and walk them on a leash..)

Our Easter fun started on Saturday with Susan and Adrian. I boiled 2 dozens eggs! Susan brought over the dye and the mini crockpot to do chocolate fondue in :)

I knew that I couldnt hear Olivia in the kitchen while I was rinsing the eggs in a cold water bath. I found her in her bedroom playing and pulling things out of her closet.. *sigh*

The bright ones are Adrian's and mine.
The bottom ones are Mike's and Susan's.
Olivia wasn't really diggin' the whole egg dye thing.
I think she was overwhelmed and tired :(

We made hot wings and mashed potatos for dinner. The boys played video games and the girls watercolored in the princess coloring book :) It was great!
Sunday morning, we gave Olivia her easter basket. She didn't quite get it, but I think she likes seeing what would come out of the eggs. Her favorite part? Getting to eat jelly beans!
We all expected it to rain since it was so dreary out.
But mostly it was humid and cloudy!
We hid 5 eggs with snacks in them for Olivia. She loved it!
This picture makes me laugh because we put Olivia down and she booked it! And you can see how far away from the egg she really is..

When she was done, she handed me her basket and we went inside :)

I hadn't realized when I looked before that not only did Olivia have a dinosaur Easter basket, she also got a dino with bunny ears on it. I love it :)
