Easter Weekend

We had a great Easter weekend - we had breakfast with my sisters on Saturday morning, attended our ward's Easter egg hunt on Saturday afternoon, and dyed eggs on Saturday night. The next morning, Owen found his Easter basket and hunted for eggs in our house. We enjoyed spending the weekend together watching conference and eating tons of Easter candy! It was a great restful weekend right before the last couple weeks of school!

Helping Lexie stir.

Trying to convince Owen that he wanted to find eggs, not play on the playground.

Eggy! (in Owen's words)

Once he found out there was candy in the eggs, he wouldn't let them out of his sight.

Coloring on his egg with a crayon before he dyes it.

Owen loved these eggs (and managed to break about half of them before they were even dyed - he even bit right through the shell of one of them).

Deciding what stickers to use on his eggs.

This was close to the end of our egg dyeing - Owen was getting to be a bit of a punk. :)

Dyeing Easter eggs. Owen LOVED this! Hopefully next year he'll get to do it on his own instead of just watching. Mommy didn't want to deal with scrubbing dye off of him and his high chair. :)

Owen loves to help me put away pots and pans that I've washed, so we hid his Easter basket in the cupboard with the pots and pans, and set one out to entice him to open the door. He was so excited to find his basket!

Opening his Easter box from grandmas.

Bunny glasses! He thinks these are hilarious.

Climbing on to the table to get his basket.

Karen, this video is for you. Owen dances to this card every night on his way to bed. :)

Advent Calendar info

My friend Jenn, who helped me make the advent calendar I posted on here a few weeks ago, is being spotlighted tomorrow (Wednesday) on the craft blog The Idea Room. She has also started selling advent calendars in her Etsy shop if you're interested. They're just like the one that I made - a frame with numbered pockets all around it to hold all the pieces, and a magnetic background scene with the manger and hills, etc. She's also got a lot of other cute patterns and crafts for sale. Go check it out!
