Easter Weekend

We had a great Easter weekend which started off with east baskets and dying eggs on Saturday. The boys loved dying eggs especially David who practically threw the eggs into the dye and then exclaimed, "whoa" loudly every time. It was good we put newspaper down because we created quite a mess!


Saturday afternoon I went on a run and during the last half mile noticed that my shoe was soaked with blood. My two smallest toes had been rubbing together last week every time I ran so, I had put a band-aid on before my run but I guess it came off. Blood soaked all over my sock and shoe but it hurt a lot less then it looks.

I wanted this picture taken outside to document all of the snow that I would love to have in December or January but not in March! This is after church on Sunday.

Easter just wouldn't be complete without a lot of candy, really too much candy. We thought Madeline should also have a taste of Easter sugar so we gave her a few licks of a Hershey kiss, she thought it tasted delicious!

The picture of Madeline with the chocolate is darling! How lucky for her to get such a treat.
I remember having Jacob and Olivia painting eggs when you were in Toledo. You are such a fantastic mom with all your projects. How fun!

I love the pictures of the kids, Madeline is so cute with her big smile.

If you have lots of toe rubbing issues maybe you should check out body glide (vaseline works pretty well too).

Wow! I've come home with bloody toes too, but not like that. You must be an intense runner. : ) We never got to the eggs this year. So sad!
