Easter 2009

We went to Kevin and Luann's house for Easter. We shared Easter dinner, had another Easter egg hunt, went to the park and gave Maggie, the dog, some love. All in all it was a good day.

It was a good Easter.

Egg Hunt at the Park

We look cute and we are ready to hunt for eggs.

The hunt. New Life, our old church, put on the hunt.

We can hardly wait!

Ready, set, go.

I don't know if there were enough eggs. : )

We got two golden tickets. That means you get to go to another table and choose two prizes.

This is one of the prizes Micah chose.

Goodbye Easter Bunny. See you next year.

Coloring Eggs

These are the cups we used to start coloring eggs. They didn't work very well because after the pellets dissolved you couldn't really see the colors because of the black bottom. So we switched to clear plastic. Much better.

We had fun. I hadn't colored eggs in forever.

And of course we have to take pictures of the meltdowns once in a while.

It was a good attempt at a smile on Micah's part.

The finished product.

Pictures from around the house this week

My Mom Visits

My mom was able to visit last week. For those of you who don't know, my step dad, Jim, was scheduled for surgery on my due date. As it worked out I had Kaia while Jim was in surgery. I heard one of the first things he asked when he woke up was how his newest granddaughter was. My mom and Jim came up before the birth to see us but the recovery time for Jim after the surgery is about a month. My mom left Jim to fend for himself for a couple of days (with prepared home cooked meals) and came up to visit last week. We were happy to see her. Jim will come up in a few weeks when the doctor says it is OK to travel. We loved having my mom here. We went shopping, to the park, took a walk. My mom was lots of help. I love being spoiled by family. : ) Love you mom. Come back soon.
