Eggs Done, Bunny Cake in Progress..

This picture was from yesterday's special Easter storytime. The library had a special event for 2-4 year olds. They read some Easter books, made a bunny craft, and then headed outside for an egg hunt. I had signed up Jacob for it, and talked with Josiah about it beforehand. It dawned on me that I could potentially have an issue or potential meltdown if the two didn't get to do something together (you all know how inseparable they are...). I talked with Josiah about how this was something special for Jacob and the other 2 & 3 &4 year olds. He got it immediately - he said "yea, the stories will be for younger kids with not as many words, and the craft will be easy for the younger kids. I'll just help Jacob, and some other time we can do something special only for the 5 year olds." I was so proud of him!!! He handled it GREAT! Oh, and the bathing suits are because we had to go straight from storytime to swimming lessons...I'm sure the moms that had their kids dressed in their Easter outfits and smocked overalls and dresses thought I was a freak!
The boys all decorated our Easter eggs this morning. It was not the most successful "kit" we've ever done, but it was fun. Growing up, we used to always dye the eggs on Saturday night - and we had many an Easter Sunday morning with blue and pink fingers!!!! Remember Kristen?
The bunny cake is made and waiting to be decorated once the boys wake up from their naps. They've already practiced hiding and finding eggs today (even Callie got to enjoy that!) David was roaming around the kitchen earlier whining about how there is no chocolate anywhere. I told him that I bought it two weeks ago to fill the eggs with but have it hidden!!! I'm no dummy!!!

That's quite a bunny at the storytime. Isn't wonderful when our kids exceed our expectations and handle difficult situations so well. Don't you think God feels the same way about us, when for once we get it and don't throw a fit!!!! Looks like a fun first day of vacation.

That bunny costume looks familiar!! It looks like the same one I donned 2 years ago at Shores. Glad they are enjoying all the festivities.
