We had a great Easter weekend - lots of music, scripture lessons and fun! A week or so ago we even got to see some new baby chicks (yellow this time). We're so glad our friends shared these sweet little guys with us:
Landon is in love with little creatures. He asked me today "Mom, what does the word 'adorable' mean?". When I told him, he said "Oh, yeah, those little chicks were so adorable".
Landon's friend Peyton:
Parker had just woken up, but he still wanted to see the chicks!
We dyed eggs over the weekend, too. Parker started things off by spilling green dye all over the table and himself....sigh. I must say, the boys were both extremely cautious after that! We dyed farm eggs, so they were already slightly colored (blue, tan, cream). And don't ask me why my kids have no shirts. Now that it's getting warm out, they basically want to be naked at all times!
Here's Parker making a "dinosaur egg" with a Q-tip:
On Easter morning the boys found that the Easter bunny had pooped jelly beans all over the house! You can see by how dark it was in the house that they were up early! Landon actually woke up a 1/2 hour before this. I told him he had to wait until Parker woke up....yep, you can guess what happened next. I heard whispers from their bedroom: "Parker....Parker! You should wake up and see all the CANDY that's on the floor!"
Very excited about their baskets:
They were big fans of the candy and chocolate, but they also have quite a grasp on the true meaning of Easter. Parker's primary teacher made everyone in his class a laminated set of Easter pictures. He was SO excited to come home and show us how Jesus was in the tomb, but then came out and is "still alive!". When I think about my sweet family, it makes me even more grateful for the Savior and all he did for us to allow us to triumph over death and live again together as families. I'm so glad that my boys recognize how important that is!! Happy Easter!
