Easter 2010

I stuffed over 80 eggs. More than I was planning on! Here are the kid's baskets before they were hidden.

I decided to to a bit a scavenger hunt for the kids. So when they woke up they found this poem:

The Easter Bunny left a game to play,
Open the first egg and be on your way!
Putting on your funny teeth is the first thing to do,
Then follow the picture to your next clue!

Then there were pictures for the clues hidden in Easter eggs. First stop was the laundry room:

They went to the office:

The to where the kid kitchen is:

Then out to the van to where the baskets were.

Oh Happy Day for this little guy!

Since I stuffed so many eggs I knew our kids didn't need to have that many we invited our neighbors, the Stahls, over for the hunt. It was more of a knock on their door at 9am asking them to be ready in an hour! So here they are all lined up ready to go!

And they're off!!

Enjoying the fruits of their labor!

Then between General Conference sessions they invited us over for their Easter Egg hunt. I must admit they had way better candy than we did!

At their house:

Honestly, I spend the last hour of conference getting ready for dinner that night. The house stayed clean, it was just all the food prep. I was able to do most of it early but we were expecting company soon after conference was over, so I wanted to make sure everything was ready. We had over the Thompsons, Travis friend Rich and his parents. So total there was 7 adults and 6 kids. Here are the babies demonstrating what not to do with your food :-)

Hee Hee, she's so cute!!

We had turkey, green bean casserole, holiday jello salad, candied carrots, twice baked potatoes, homemade rolls, pie and pineapple upside down cake.

After dinner we let the kids play in the hours of dusk.


Defending herself like a good girl should :-)

Then the kids donned Travis' shirts and dyed eggs.

Even Rich's parents got into the action.

Travis had fun snapping silhouette pictures.

The kids all settled in for an Easter lesson.

We have a set of Easter Resurrection eggs. There are 12 plastic eggs. In each egg is an object that represents some part of the story leading up to Christ's death and resurrection. We pull them out every Easter and the kids love it!

Travis gave a wonderful lesson. The Thompsons left and we got the kids in bed. Rich and his parents stuck around for a few more hours and had a ton of questions about the church. Travis was able to answer so many of their questions. They left with hearing his testimony and a Book of Mormon.
