Easter: April 24, 2011

Happy Easter!
Highlights from today:  (click here for pictures)
  • Easter morning around here and the boys were the first ones up.  I had put their Easter baskets in the floor of my room and Graham saw them and just said “Why’d you bring our baskets up here?”
  • Later, Graham walked by again and noticed his basket had something in it.  Soon him and Anderson were rummaging through their baskets-everyone had bandaids, toothpaste, a rice krispie treat, an egg with a dollar and another one with a quarter in it.  The boys also had a ball in theirs, Campbell had a toothbrush and Reagan had a tiny Little Pet Shop toy.  Before long, everyone was up and eating their rice krispie treats-Campbell devoured hers and then tried to finish off Graham’s after he laid his down.
  • We made it to church on time and dropped Campbell off and then the rest of us found seats way up front.  The boys were able to come to church with us today.  Graham and Anderson were very excited about seeing Grannymom and Grandpa on the way in.  They did very well throughout church.  A little movement but fairly quiet for a 2 and 4 year old.  I had told them to watch Reagan and do just what she did and she was a perfect example for them.
  • We did have one church incident-I was trying to show Graham where Uncle Jason was standing while working the camera.  He looked and looked for him and finally found him.  Later, after standing up I tried to point out Jason again but I guess I didn’t whisper loud enough because Graham said “Jesus? Where is Jesus?”  as he was looking around the sanctuary.
  • We hung out in Graham’s room for worship care and then headed onto Grannymom’s house.  We took a few pictures in our Easter clothes before quickly changing to start eating Easter lunch.  The kids ate pretty quick because there mind was on the Easter egg hunt. 
  • Grannymom had hidden eggs for everyone to find and they even had stuff in them.  The race was on and everyone got a fair amount of eggs.  Campbell thought she was something else walking around picking up the egg that she found and she was delighted to discover candy in it which she sat down on the grass and ate!
  • After a few pushes on the swing and a few more rounds of egg hiding it was time for naps.  After naps, we had a bite to eat and then took another walk.  The neighbor girl was outside so everyone enjoyed a popsicle and then a few rounds of chase before bathtime.
  • Next up we reviewed our resurrection eggs and headed to bed.  It was a busy day but a great one.
