We started off our Easter celebration by having some friends over for dinner and egg dying. We caught Abby just as she was starting to put one of the dye tablets into her mouth. Apparently she thought it looked like candy. Yikes!
While the rest of us were dying eggs, Clara hung out with her boyfriends. Don't these boys kind of make you want some cute, chunky twins?
On the Saturday before Easter, we met up with a bunch of friends at the park for an Easter egg hunt. It was a rainy day, but the weather let up just long enough for the kiddos to find their eggs. Abby loved finding eggs but she really loved the fact that they were all filled with candy. She is such a candy monster! The down side of the day? Sam came home with a tick on his leg. Eek!
On Sunday morning, Abby got to find a few more eggs and an Easter basket full of more candy. What were we thinking?
After that, we got ready for church and listened to wonderful songs and talks that reminded us what the Easter season is really about! We are so thankful for our Savior and his atoning sacrifice for us. It is amazing to know that we will live again just as our Savior did.
After church, we had some friends over for a delicious dinner. I couldn't find my camera until everyone left. Sam had put it in the bedroom when he was clearing the table. Oops.
It was a wonderful week. Kids make the holidays so much fun!
