The kids started out with egg coloring. It used to be so much easier to color eggs. Now everyone wants multicolored eggs. Trying to get each half to be a different color leads to a lot of multicolored fingers and a lot of dropped eggs.
Then they switched to dying the entire egg in 3 different colors. And we ended up with many swamp colored eggs. Notice the series of swamp green eggs on the left side of the picture. I was very frustrated. This in combination with The Masters being on TV and Mark leaving with a cup of dye in his hands to watch TV made for a very aggravated mama.
Our Final results.
The Easter bunny came and left clues for the kids to find their baskets. See if you did as well as they did.
Clue 1 (hidden in jelly beans on the stove)
An Easter hunt. What fun! What fun!
3 new baskets, when all is done.
A bed, a desk, a cage, a box
for person and dog but not a fox.
Clue 2 (taped to dog cage)
Sometimes hot, Sometimes cold
Trees grow up, So I'm told.
Papers, trash and Items Sold
Mail, flyers and letters I hold.
Clue 3 (mailbox)
This is a place to cook your meat
A table and chairs for your seat
Cheeseburgers, hot dogs and occasionally fish
Might cook a chicken but not the dish.
Clue 4 (grill)
You are tired, so you say.
One more clue for you today.
I am soapy, clean and wet
You don't like to take them, I bet.
Scrub your hair, face and feet,
And you will have lots of candy to eat.
Yep, Baskets in the shower. Good Job!
After consuming our weight in Jelly-beans, Cinnamon rolls and Kisses, we forced the kids to sit still through a mass that was 2 hours long. Perhaps we should have rethought that. Surprisingly, they did quite well. Afterward we went to brunch at the Crab Shack. They had a wonderful brunch with yummy southern dishes.
Grammy & Papa came in for the Holiday. Here they are after Easter Brunch.
Hope your Easter went as well as ours. Happy Easter (a few days late)
