Saturday was all about egg-dyeing. 'Scuse the mess and the jacked-up kitchen table (it needs resurfacing), but life is crazy now.
Chloë declared the annual egg-dyeing day her favorite family activity of the year!
Even Jack got into the fun. We dyed three dozen eggs - one per kid.
The kids decided they wanted to do some hard-boiled and some raw eggs. I agreed, so we did half-and-half. Jack and Sophie each decimated a raw egg, and Chloë managed to demolish a hard-boiled egg. Not really a bad loss ratio, all things considered.
The finished products, which they insisted on keeping separate
On Sunday, before church, we dressed the kids in their Easter outfits and had them hunt for baskets outside. This was a new switch, but we didn't want Paco getting into any chocolate if we hid them inside!
Chloë was first to find her basket.
True to age order, Jack was second.
And shortly after that, Sophia found her basket last of all.
Happy Easter, Mom & Dad!
Each kiddo received one unique thing in his/her basket. Chloë's was a small Grumpy Cat stuffy. She's been having fun holding it up and saying, "NO" to every question asked of her, making me rethink that purchase! ;)
The kids each received an egg that was supposed to soak for a while in water, revealing a hidden treasure inside... Sophia couldn't wait, though, and smashed hers to reveal a bunny right off the bat. Par for the course!
Jack may or may not have been delighted to have LEGO City as his unique gift... I can't really tell, can you?
It always cracks me up when the kids get their Easter baskets and have a smörgåsbord of candy at their fingertips, and they have to sample each and every type right off the bat. No patience where sugar is involved!
I asked Sophia to show me her special item from her basket, which was really a bucket of sidewalk chalk, but she showed me her Extra Gum instead! Hahaha! GUM!!!
They each got a packet of finger lights, and these were found to be fun by all. It's been a day and a half, and I'm sure they're all lost by now! :/
Jack followed Sophie's lead and smashed his egg to reveal a chick. Kind of an ugly chick, if I do say so myself!
Daddy and Paco watched the festivities from the couch, their favorite spot to hang out together.
Silly fun with Easter grass "wigs"
Paco was content on this, his first Easter Sunday. Awww... ♥
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all had a great weekend with your loved ones!
