Happy (late) Easter to all! We had a fun weekend celebrating the holiday. It started on Friday when Trent, Jane, and I colored eggs. Jane thought this was the best thing! Having just learned all of her colors, she loved to put (or should I say throw) her eggs into the dye and see how they came out. We let her color on the eggs with crayons first so that she could see her art work on the egg after it came out of the dye. It was good times and we only ended up with 3 broken eggs.
Easter morning we woke up and the Easter bunny had come! Jane got mostly toys (I guess the Easter bunny knew she loaded up on candy the day before). We had a nice breakfast (after Trent got home from a church meeting. . . . Why do they do that?!?!?!? take people away from their families on a religious holiday to discuss things that could be discussed another day?!?!?! makes me mad. anyways. . . ) After breakfast (which Jane ate none of because she'd found her candy from the day before and loaded up), we got her in her Easter dress and went outside for pictures. Dang it was beautiful!!! Sun shinning, birds singing, green grass. . . I felt like I was in a Disney movie! Church was a bit rough as Jane started coming down from the sugar and turned into what we call a mean (sugar) drunk. But at least she went to nursery without a fight (can't say the same for getting her to leave nursery however). We came home and took naps and then headed over to my Aunts for Easter dinner. My Aunt had placed Easter eggs in her back yard for Jane to have her own little Easter hunt and she loved it! After dinner, she somehow managed to get more candy in her system, much to the dismay of her parents, but this time she was a happy drunk playing with her Dad, uncle Jon, and Grandpa. She ran around and played so hard, that once we got home, she dropped like a sack of potatoes!
