Easter sewing...and lots of eggs...and lots of pictures...and a birthday!

I bought some wooden eggs for the kids to paint for Easter and was pretty proud of myself for letting them use whatever colors they wanted.
 I didn't take a picture of their finished eggs, but they eventually mixed all the colors together and now we have some nicely camouflaged rock eggs...but they're super proud of their eggs!
Ben had a church activity the week before Easter and for some reason needed to get 10 dozen eggs for it.  There were extras, and we're just now finishing them up. 

We made scrambled eggs, dutch babies with powdered sugar and strawberries, egg salad and a birthday cake that fortunately required 6 eggs on it's own just yesterday for Abby's 3rd birthday.
 We had a pretty good Easter weekend.  I sewed up the Geranium dress pattern for Abby to wear to church and a matching bow-tie for Matthew, but...Abby and I never made it to church....oh well. That's a different story. 

The Saturday before, the kids got to go to 2 Easter egg hunts, saw "the Easter bunny" and had a wonderful time.  I love seeing the holidays through their eyes.  It's so much more exciting! 

So, Abby's Easter dress turned into a birthday dress and that was fine.  I'm already anxious to make another Geranium dress, they're so darn cute, and really not that difficult to make.  Plus, she loves wearing it and that's totally all the reason I need!



And for the next 6 days I have two 3 year olds at home!  I can't believe how fast these little monkeys grow up!

*Hope that wasn't too disconnected of a post...I had lots to catch up on!
