It snowed the day we planned to do our Easter egg hunt, so we colored eggs inside and had an Easter egg hunt in our basement. Growing up I remember coloring eggs was a blast in my family. We would be as creative as we possibly could, using a variety of things to make our eggs cooler than all the other eggs. We used crayons to color on the shells, which created some neat stuff especially with a white crayon. We loved using rubber bands and dipping the eggs in multiple dyes. My younger sister is at a college nearby and came over to help us decorate. 

 Travis says he didn't color eggs more than once or twice growing up, so he just watched us thinking we were crazy. Like I said this was/is something that I have so much fun doing with my siblings and parents, I hope that our boys have as much fun doing this together as I did with my siblings.

The crayons also made it even more fun for him so that he did something more than just drop the eggs in the dye. I unfortunately forgot to take pictures of the eggs after we finished, oops, but he sure had fun.

Hope you enjoyed your Easter celebration!

I can explain...

Why there have been a shortage of posts. It also has to do with the downpour of tears as mentioned in the last post. I've been sick a lot lately, and it's not because of all of the colds, or bugs that my husband and son have shared with me or vice versa, it's a little more permanent than that. And being this sick messes with my head, so I decided that it was best to wait until we knew what was going on inside my body. See the thing is...

I'm pregnant, and am 19 weeks along with a due date of September 5th, 2010. Hopefully you can see his profile and left foot in the bottom picture. I had to take a picture of the images with my computer, all the cameras batteries are dead, so the foot looks like his right. Adam has been excitedly telling people on the phone, "Baby brother!"(Yes we're having a boy) He's so cute about it too. When we left the doctor's office, Adam said this to my doctor, "Thank you for baby brother." And insisted that the ultrasound pictures are his, so I'm going to have to make a copy of them for him, so that he doesn't accidentally tear them.

Hopefully soon, the regular posting will resume, the colds and bugs we keep getting will go away. And last but not least the warm weather will quit holding out on us so that Adam and I can get outside and play/work in the dirt. Here's hoping!
