This year, once again, we went to Mom & Dad's for Easter dinner and then everyone came to our house for dessert and the egg hunt.So, my "festivities" started on Saturday with baking and decorating.
I have no idea why they turned out looking like crap, but they did. Anh mentioned that she heard if I put a shallow pan of water in the oven with the cakes it helps with moisture and they don't crack.
My Shug hid the eggs...and this is how he hid most of them.
Trent was very fixated on getting his fishing pole ready for fishing!
See what I mean!
Now if you remember, on Monday last week we had a huge snow storm with ten inches of snow. I have to tell you I was sweating this weekend because there is no way I can fit all of these people in one room at the same time. Especially with the kids.
Lucky for me the temps reached 55 degrees! And it was sunny!
Thank you God!
Joey and Dylan were ready to hunt eggs too.
When I walked outside they already had all of the baskets out, and I was informed that I needed more baskets and bigger baskets, or better yet, they prefer bags for next year.
Chee decided to use the basket that held the baskets, and the boys decided to use the bags that their chairs came in!
I am definitely going to have to make some changes next year.
Adrienne grabbed a grocery bag!
After the hunt, the guys took off across the road to go fishing.
The rest of us relaxed while the kids played outside.
And let's not forget to take a moment to remember the real reason for Easter.
PS - I'm going to skip Ripple Monday this week
