The morning started out with treats from the Easter Bunny and Grandma Lois. Reagan of course had to try on her new p.j.s right away and the candy disappeared at an astonishing rate. Tools to help in the garden were a prominent feature of the Easter gifts. (I'm hoping they will be occupied with all of it so I can actually get some work done.
This is the Easter aftermath that Daniel took a picture of. He is always stealing camera and taking pictures. Later that night we went to dinner at a friend's house and participated in an Easter Egg hunt. It was one of the most fun I've ever been to and we had a blast.
The best part of the hunt? They were real egg shells that had been decorated and filled with confetti with tissue paper taped to the end that was used to fill the egg. After all the eggs were found we would smash them on each others heads. When the first one was done you should have seen Reagan's face. She was so stunned. As you can see they had a blast. The eggs with confetti will have to become a new family tradition.


  1. Wow, sounds great.

    I can't get a visual. How big was the opening? How'd they stuff them?

  2. Really as big as you want for the opening. Much bigger than if you were going to blow them out. Like maybe 1/2 in.? She emptied them as she needed them then put them in the carton and let them dry. They usually collect them all year so they have tons. Then after they have colored/decorated them they just pour the confetti in and use elmer's glue to glue the 1 inch or so squares on the egg. It was really great.

  3. Daniel looks great in his glasses. I'm glad they are helping.
