I planned some activities just for Eli and Noah... not surprised?? :) I wish we could spend holidays with some of the other grand kids... but since Eli and Noah live close...they are spoiled- lol. I love our "non yard" yard, for Easter eggs. I put out 72 plastic eggs. (the boys know that I keep the eggs and they get what's inside) I filled them with nickels, dimes, quarters, and pennies this year. No way, am I doing that much candy. They came out right after church, so I had to hurry home and get a few last minutes items ready and get the eggs out. As soon as they arrived the boys jumped out of the car and headed for the buckets and eggs...I told them they just had to wait until I got GG outside. We also did a little egg coloring project. Since it involved shaving cream and food color...the boys took their shirts off. (Neither one of them liked getting their hands messy.) I did a few fancy decorations for dinner. I was hoping to have a picnic outside, instead of the traditional Easter dinner. But it was too hot, windy, and buggy outside. Ron said it was "too Texas" outside. haha We had chicken fingers, potato salad, corn on the cob, deviled eggs, veggie sticks, watermelon and cheese cake. I also had two small Easter baskets and a "Don't Eat the Peep" game. So we sugared the boys up good and then sent them home with Sam and Audrey- lol ... like any good grand parents and Easter Bunny would do.
