Easter Tails

Unfortunately, I've been ill recently. Fever, body aches, ear aches, sore throat....ugh. Timothy has been ill too. That boy has the worst runny nose...I feel so bad for him. 

Despite being ill, Easter weekend was a good one. We dyed eggs Saturday night and the kids just had a wonderful time! There was the typical fighting over who got what egg and who got to use the green dye first....but that's part of the fun, right? lol We ended up with some pretty dang beautiful eggs!

We have a cute tradition where the kiddos have a trail of jelly beans and other candy that leads them to their baskets on the couch. This year their baskets were full of sunglasses, books, new drinking cups, p.j.'s, t-shirts, sandles, and some candy treats.....all of which we were able to score either on sale or use a coupon on. Anthony and Molly also got their own mucking scoops and a mucking cart they can push themselves so they can take on the responsibility of poop scooping the barn and arena. 

Our egg hunt was so much fun! It was awesome watching Timothy....it didn't take him long at all to figure out what was going on! Watching him run around getting excited about finding an egg made me lough out loud. By now Anthony and Molly are egg seeking pros. We hid our real dyed eggs and stuffed eggs this year. Our stuffed eggs were filled with jelly beans, chocolate eggs, little reeces cups, fruit snacks, quarters, and a few even had dollar bills. 

After our super fun morning, the rest of the day was spent outside. I felt well enough to get some yard work done with Sammy while the kids played. Our Easter dinner consisted of cheddar mashed potatoes, asparagus, and smoked ribs! A fight over how much candy could be had for dessert and the comment, "You're not the candy police!!" from Anthony capped off our evening. Hahaha Love it.

With love,
Mama Hauck
