Happy Easter! :)
Our fun began on Saturday while Matthew was at work. We didn't have school because who wants to do school the day before Easter? NOT ME! But we did have an Eastery kind of day. :)
Remy made this sweet little chick. :)
"Mommy I want to give him a kiss because he is so cute!"
This was the cutest thing Remy has EVER made in my opinion. I want to keep it forever and put it out every year. :)
Elijah got in some MoMo snuggles before he started and finished his bunny craft. :)
He had alot of fun making the bunny, but he burned one of his fingers on the glue from the hot glue gun and he was crippled the rest of the night. *rolling eyes*
Remy also made this sweet bunny. :)
We kept up the celebrations once daddy came home. He always does the overseeing of the egg dye, but they were so big they didn't need any help this year. :( We need a new baby!
Elijah is a super neat freak...but Remy...
Let's just say that the table was WORSE! Eli's hand were super clean. :)
This morning the boys awoke to find that the bunny had come and he had eaten a bit of the carrot that was left for him. :)
Remy has been begging for this little gorilla figurine and the bunny didn't forget. ;)
Look close, do you see monkey in his arms. *sigh* I will cry the day monkey is put away.
They have both hinted at needing new nets this spring, glad the bunny came through. ;)
Here is northern Louisiana it POURED and it POURED some more. We couldn't hide eggs until after dinner and then we had to slosh through the huge wet puddles everywhere. It also ruined the chance of a good photo shoot. We plan on mending that one on the next sunny day. :) My friend Myka was hinting at a photo day, I think maybe we should combine it. :) She can take our photo and we can take hers. :)
Sweet little feet!
Atleast the stormy Easter brought out Remy's bestest friends. :)
We did snap off a few inside photos. I look so tired today...the rain did it to me.
I love your looks Eli.
Remy is making his super silly face as he does an impression. One day I will video it and share it, funny stuff!
Oh look...the rain did me in!
We had to do something while we waited out the rain, so I printed off some Easter crafts and we all got to work. :)
Remy made a bunny puppet.
Another little chick in an egg.
We briefly went over the life of Jesus and then talked a bit on why we really celebrate today and how the Easter Bunny came to be in it. :)
We made stuffed hearts with the John 3:16 verse on it. :) I have them hanging over the fireplace now.
I put the red ribbon back up and Rommie has a horrible habit of not staying out of my craft bins in the school room. Matthew caught her in the act. Poor MoMo!
We made our own tombs, but Jesus wasn't there, Praise God!
Remy's is on the left and Eli's on the right.
I took a break to finish up something I have been crocheting. I have finishing left to do, but the "fabric" is all worked up. I will share soon!
Remy took the time to start in on that chocolate bunny!
We did get that wet egg hunt in...finally...
The puppies kept giving the hiding places away!
Remy found a moth friend and the egg hunt was off for a while. Hee hee...
The kids each got a wooden puzzle kit in their bucket and they put them together. The frog is Remy's and the squirrel is Eli's.
Eli also had a mosaic kitty in his bucket.
We finished up the fun with paper beads turned into crosses. :) The first one is mine.
We also want to thank Grammy and Grampy for the sweet homemade card and the yummy candies. :) Grammy, the little eggs came in handy for Eli's bunny craft he made. :)
Great Grandma and Grandpa Crain sent the boys each a card and some fun money inside!
We had a great day despite how much our plans were changed. We spent it together, and we kept Jesus in it. :) I hope everyone who reads here had such a blessed day. :)
