We had some pre-Easter fun before celebrating the actual holiday.
We were egged! (this is a neighborhood tradition where someone places 12 eggs for you to find in your front yard along with a sign and instructions...then you pick someone to "egg" and it continues on and on)
I wonder who we egged?!? We'll never tell ;-)
Easter Eve, the kids and I headed to their preschool/MDO church's Easter carnival and egg hunt. It was crowded, and I wish Matt had been there to help me keep track of the kids (he was hosting a Master's viewing party). I was scared I was going to lose one of them. We had a good time but it was a little too stressful for my liking!
Caroline was so sweet and helpful to her little bro. She held his basket and tried to teach him how to hunt for eggs. He didn't quite get it, but he loved walking around with Caroline while holding eggs in his hands:
"Give me that egg!!!!!"
Found the candy!!!!
Caroline made an Easter craft while I was wrestled small craft supplies out of Matthew's mouth. We left soon after this picture was taken, ha
So we headed home from the crazy carnival, put Matthew down for a nap, and dyed Easter eggs. A favorite tradition in our house! And Caroline loved doing it all by herself this year.
Coming up...Celebrating Easter Part 2...Easter Sunday!!
