Easter Sunday

We had a great weekend! I love the ages the kids are for this sort of thing. We dyed eggs on Saturday late afternoon than had a family movie night. Ella had chosen a glitter kit (of course!) and they actually turned out pretty good! Here are some pics:

Sunday morning dawned sunny and the kids were excited to find their baskets. Here is a picture of Coby searching in the powder room:

Ella's was hidden in the laundry room on top of the dryer and Coby's was in the top oven! He gave me a strange look earlier (while we were waiting for Ella to wake up) when I had asked him to open the bottom one for me so I could put the potatoes in. I had told him the casserole was heavy and it was hard for me to lift it into the top one. He bought it!!! Hee Hee Hee...Later he told me it was a good thing I had noticed his basket there before I preheated the oven!

They were excited about what they got. They both got a new Webkinz, Peeps, those cool new Tooth Tunes toothbrushes (Jonas Brothers for Coby and Hannah Montana for Ella), and an egg with their fav candy (Fun Dip for Coby and a Pez for Ella). Then Coby got this cool Bionicle set and Ella got a radio with a CD player and MP3 jack for her room and the Mariposa movie.

Here they are ready for church:

After church we went to Jon's Aunt's house for good food and family and the annual Easter Egg hunt:

Great Grandmom had put a green jellybean in one of the eggs and whoever found it got an extra dollar. It was in Coby's egg!

Then we came home and crashed!!

Random Fact of the Day: The house that we live in was supposed to be our temporary "starter home." Almost eleven years and an added 1800 square feet later we are still here!!

The eggs turned out pretty! I let Chloe do what she wanted with ours (which you know is hard for me) so they have princess stickers all over them. :-) From the pictures, it looks like you all had a fun Easter!

The Joneses (Will's parents) hid their baskets too, how fun! Great pictures! On the random fact, we are still in our starter home also, plans change I guess! But your addition did make your house like a new house!!
