Just a few pictures

I snapped using my phone to document the Easter weekend:

I found this drawing in Anna's backpack and it made me smile. She has been drawing people since she turned 3, but the sky and sun is new. It's pretty exciting that she's adding more details to her drawings :)

We went to another egg hunt this weekend. A free one. Opened to all. And our new family motto after this event? If it's free, we are not going. Sure there were lots of goodies (full-size Reese's peanut butter eggs!) up for grabs, but there were way too many people. I was glad we paid $12 for Colvin Run Mill last weekend so at least the kids had a nice civilized egg hunt experience. This one ended with one of my kids in tears.

On Sunday morning, I gave the kids their Easter basket. The Frozen Read-Along book was by far the most popular, many fights have already instigated from it.

It's spring planting time! We went to The Home Depot and got a couple pots of herbs, just like we always do each year. But just as we were finishing up, we tore open a new packet of sunflower seeds and scattered them through our little herb garden. Anna will be so excited if they really pop!

  1. It's so great to notice new developments in our kids! How cute the details in the drawing and her name is written quite well!!! And sorry that the free egg hunt ended in tears :(. We went to a free one and J had a good time, whew. LOL on your not going to free events anymore. The crowds drain the fun out of stuff.

  3. It's so fun watching kid's artwork evolve and change. My girls got a set of colored pencils for Easter and they have been drawing up a storm! My husband and I are not fond of crowds, so the easter bunny comes to our house and hides eggs throughout the house for the girls to find. :)

  6. Great job Anna, love the little details! It's fun to look at their "people" drawings... starts with just the head... then head with arms and legs sticking out then head and body with legs, feet, etc... too cute!
    Sorry about the tears... free events tend to be crazy especially if it's on a weekend :(. But overall looks like you all had a great Easter! :D - Eva

  7. Yup, much better artwork these days. More details and scenery and much less zombie/voodoo freaky stick figures. Thumbs up!
