Easter Weekend!

We began our weekend by renting two movies from redbox. (We love redbox!) The whole family enjoyed "Enchanted" although there were a couple of moments that thankfully, the kids didn't catch. Overall, it was a cute movie. "No Country for Old Men" is another story. We tend to like the dark humor of the Coen brothers' movies like "Raising Arizona" and "Fargo," but this didn't have any humor (and no music). I don't know why it won anything. Lots of killing, and not very interesting.

Saturday, was a good day to dye! I spent the day dying another 6 sets of play silks to raise money for our adoption fund. We're going to try eBay to see how we do there. Our kids love them, and I have received lots of comments about how other children love them and do very creative things with them!

I worked in the nursery at our Saturday service this week, so we decided that the whole family would go to make room for others on Sunday morning. Good thing we did since our church had record attendance!

After church, we dyed our eggs, and the kids decorated them with stickers. Ten of the twelve eggs survived the evening. All three children made it!

Sunday, before William needed to get to church to work his children's registration post, we took a moment as a family to remember what Easter is about by opening our resurrection eggs. Annika opened the one with a rock and explained in detail the reason that there was a rock in her egg. It was in front of the tomb where Jesus was buried, and it rolled away.

After William got home from church, we played the "ham" game. He likes to ask if you know what we're having for dinner, and it is "Ham, ham, ham!" as he squeezed your thigh to tickle you. I hate it, and he knows it!

We went to my mom, Barbara's, for Easter dinner where we had.... HAM! (Both kinds.) Dinner was delicious. The kids got sand buckets full of goodies from Mema, and they got to see what we put in their baskets.

After that was the most fun part -the egg hunt! We hid 54 plastic eggs with either candy or money in them in Mom's front yard.

Each of the children received a DVD in their Easter basket, so after some deliberation, it was decided that we would watch "Night at the Museum." It is great! So, we all snuggled in and watched while William called our family far away to give out happy Easter wishes!

I have had the play silks in a basket in the nursery and Josiah just discovered them. He spent at least half an hour playing with them and laughing the whole time. He wouldn't sit still long enough for me to get a picture.

The Easter egg hunt looked like so much fun. I love the picture of the egg way up in the tree. Happy Easter!

With Love,

You should try selling the scarves on It's for hand-crafted goods and there are tons of SAHMoms on there.

Oh NO! Scott just brought home "No Country for Old Men". His tech said it was great! Now I'm not sure I want to watch it.

What a fun Easter weekend! How sad, I haven't even heard of "No Country for Old Men"... I'm so 10 years ago!! I just had an idea-- I would like to buy some play silks for our church's preschool room-- how do I do that?
Love, Shari
