Happy Easter!

Happy Easter from us! Even though Easter was really late this year, it seems like it kind of snuck up on me. Last Saturday we went to our church's egg hunt, which the kids LOVED, as you can see...

Egg roll! Amelia's broke...
But Andrew's didn't (well he did cheat a bit, ha)!
My purple bunny
Andrew only picked up blue eggs, for some reason. Hmmm.

Amelia had Friday off of school, so we dyed eggs! Both kids had a lot of fun watching the eggs change colors and decorating them with stickers.
lots of options for colors
Amelia's favorite...the purple one
Andrew's favorite...the "red" one

You know how when you're a kid, and even when you are an adult (before you have kids), there are things you say you'll never do to your kids? of those things for me was making my daughter sleep with her hair in sponge rollers. Every Saturday night (for church the next morning), my mom would roll my wet hair in sponge rollers while she watched M.A.S.H. and Fantasy Island. I hated sleeping in those things because they hurt!! The next morning my hair would be very cute and curly, but I decided that was something I wouldn't need to pass along. Fast forward to the present, and I have indeed sponge-rolled Amelia's hair. However, I think the few times I've done it, it's been in the morning for something later that day. So...guess what I ended up doing last night??

Ah...memories!! However, at least I participated in her pain (well, sort of):
But look at the results cute! Oh, and Andrew's not bad himself. ;-)
Excited about the toys in their baskets

my handsome (goofy!) boy
I hope your Easter was as great as ours. We had a great day celebrating the resurrection! Blessings to you on this great day!

This is such a great post...I agree with Abby on everything (although I sadly I can't say I'll be hanging out with you in "hoo-waii"!)
