Attempt #3 at Catch Up #1

This is now the third time I am trying to publish my blog.  Hmmm, maybe Chris is right about my computer slowing down because it has 6500 photos on it.  Hmmm.

Anyhow, I'm a bit behind on my blog.  Haven't actually used the main computer a lot, well except to dump photos  :)

So this is post #1 for catching up.  Hope to do a bit every couple of days.  This is Easter.  Ya ya, it was two weeks ago - but this is about Easter.

On Friday, Brad came to hang out so that his Mom could pack (they are moving).  We decided to do the dyed eggs, which with two 6 year old boys and a 3 year old with the nickname Princess Disaster....well I was wondering how it would all go.  But with rules in place and a wide space to work in, the eggs are beautiful, and the kids had a great time.

Since I have had children, Easter weekend has been cold and wet.  This was no exception.  The neighbourhood organizes an egg hunt on the Saturday - which for some reason I only learned about last year a bit too late.  But this year we were well organized and even donated some eggs.  We almost missed it again as apparently WW3 happened while I was out walking the dog in the rain, but lucky for the kids they got out of jail just in case.  Regardless, the weather stayed true.
It was very cute watching the kids run around and collect things.  Kaylee herself showed that the hunt was the best part, she would walk past a pile of eggs (like 20) and take one.  Sweet thing.
Easter Sunday here brought another egg hunt in the living room, and a basket full of things from the bunny that did not contain more chocolate.  Some outside fun stuff like bubbles, skipping ropes and race cars.  The weather was ugly, so we hung inside together.  I ended up with a flat tire (another story all together), but the day ended by heading up to Grandma and Grandpa's for dinner.
Mom's turkey rocks.  No doubt.  I made eclairs, as that seems to be the dessert I always remember at Easter time.  I had only made them once before, but they were yummy yummy yummy.  

While the weekend was longer than usual, it still seemed to go by too fast.  At least there were moments like this.

That was worth waiting for and you're not as far behind as you think, Easter was only 1 week ago. ;)
