Finally....posting what Easter pictures I have! I really am supposed to be packing for our trip tomorrow, but being the procrastinator that I am, Mon. morning seems much too early. My husband knows I typically stay up late the night before we leave furiously throwing things in suitcases while the rest of the house is getting ready for bed. But not this time. Today I'm going to do things differently. I will pack today...but after I blog first! LOL!
Easter morning here was chilly, so I wasn't in the mood to take pictures. Some Sunday morning when it feels like spring, maybe I'll get some then! Before leaving for church we let the kids find their Easter baskets. Then after lunch, I had an Easter Egg hunt for them....not knowing they would get one at Junior church that evening! So, they had a fun day!
Caleb's favorite toy in the whole world..... a ball. He has a bin full of them. He has to have one in his hand or tucked under his arm every time we go to the store, the mall, church, etc. As a result, every time we go shopping, I find myself going WAY out of my way to avoid sight of any balls....he thinks he needs every one he sees! He loves to play "baskees" (basketball) and it seems we have somewhat of a basketball-crazy toddler! Needless to say, he was thrilled with what he got in his Easter basket.
This year, I went VERY light on the candy. I did put a few M n Ms in their plastic eggs, but it was very few! Instead, we got them a couple Easter presents. We got them the DK Illustrated Family Bible I had my eye on for quite some time. If you are looking for something VERY nice for family devotions, this is it. I am very happy with the beautiful pictures andsimple story form. Very lovely.
The second present was Lego Mosaic. This is another REALLY creative toy from Lego. The kids (and me) have been having lots of fun doing this together. There are 10 patterns of pictures you can make yourself, then you can use your imagination and just make oodles of designs.
And then there's Pumpkin! The kids love her dearly (still) and she seems to be quite a good disciplinarian as well. The other night, Caleb was bothering her for the 100th time, and just as he cornered her, she hissed at him and then swatted him hard on the leg. (thankfully no claws!) He came running and told me, "Mommy, Pumpum pankin'!"
I just realized I haven't said where we are going on vacation. Well, you'll just have to wait till I post the pictures! :)
