Easter Day

Easter has come and gone. Zan's parents stayed with us over the weekend and a good time was had by all.

The kids decorated their little cake bird nests. Those were yummy! Sam usually just chooses to eat the frosting though. 



































Ella learned how to play Old Maid. She had so much fun. She needs to work on her poker face though. She has many "tells".

 













After the kids were finished the adults continued to play. With princess cards none the less.


Easter morning the kids had fun hunting for the eggs and their baskets. Sam would find an egg and then go running after Ella to tell her all about it. Or if he found a pink or purple one he would give it to her because he knew she liked those colors.
















I ate way too much candy, cake and food but it was so yummy and worth it!

My plants are all still growing so well. Each day I have to untangle my bean plants from themselves. They like to wind their way up and around. It's going to be a long few weeks until planting. Especially with this cold/wet weather. Warmer weather can't come soon enough!

Easter was great fun from the shopping to card playing and all the delicious food and treats. The homemade ice cream and bird nest cakes were also great.

Ella and Sammy are so much fun. Enjoyed Ella's card playing. What a poker face. We still laugh when thinking of Ella trying to conceal the fact that she and grandma had the "Old Maid". Ella is such a good sport and so sweet.

Sammy was something else on the egg hunt. He was very busy, helpful, and thoughtful.

The mom and dad were great hosts. Out of a 1-4 star rating you guys get a *****+ (5stars+).
