This Easter we weren't really planning on doing much.... then Libby came to town so we hosted an Easter egg hunt at our house for Ben's family. It was a lot of fun. We had plastic eggs with candy and money (those went fast!). Julie arranged some "Minute to Win It" games the kids could do and that was pretty funny. The older boys (Hunter, TJ and Ethan) were out exploring, setting traps and trying to drown whistle pigs for a good part of the afternoon.
Mumsy sent us an Easter basket from Prague: potholder for mom, six decorative egg ornaments and two little chickies. We brought in a redbud branch and hung the eggs. I got some Easter paper lanterns that hung over the table. We colored eggs with the Tim Smiths and Shelly showed us how to make the cute nests you see pictured. They were cute and delicious (though I'm certain not too nutritious). The Easter bunny brought the following: bug books and bug collecting jars for each kid, a chocolate bunny for each kid, a little Sesame Street figure for each kid, Easter coloring books, a kite for Clyde, barrettes for Alice and a new outfit for Alice. Libby came for Easter dinner which was leg of lamb, broccoli, potato salad and toast. The kids got to have their chocolate bunnies for dessert. Clyde inhaled his and Alice actually shared some of hers with Clyde. The rest of us just got ice cream.
