happy easters {a quick post}


on saturday elijah and i dyed eggs. i was excited about the neon coloring...but then not so much.
it needs a lot of time in the dye cup, you know? and i was trying to let elijah be in charge.
each egg was basically speed dipped into his preferred color(pink, i think).
he colored on his eggs and put shimmery dots in just the right places. we had a lot of fun!
and meltdown crisis averted; thankfully, after some mild scrubbing, we removed the dye from our hands.

why i chose creepy bunny goodies for the easter basket, i do not know.
the rabbit movie sounded like a good idea. um, no.
the book and candy, new fork and spoon, mini dinos and coca-cola chapstick were a big hit!
hard to beat gonzo from last year though.

easter sunday was lovely. difficult, joyful and relaxing all at once.
i'll share more on the difficult bit soon.

we're grateful my sister, ben-in-law and niece ivy live so close!
it was wonderful to share an easter meal and laughter together. our children are fun.nee.

monday was spent recuperating from the excitement of candy and visitors.
and it was cold with snow flurries, so we stayed in. it was a good day.

patrick is home today, praise jesus.
looking forward to some time outside after errands.
then some blogging time!
what are you up to?

he is risen!

p.s.
i read this last night and wanted to share it with you:
and those who know your name
put their trust in you,
for you, o lord, have not forsaken
those who seek you.
