Easter eggs

Time to color some Easter eggs!  Gideon probably thought we were nuts when we introduced this activity.  We were all sitting around the table, we had eggs, and we had bowls of colorful liquid with spoons in them, and yet we were not eating any of it.  He was a pretty good sport about it, though, and after trying to sneak a few tastes, he agreed with us that this really was just an art project and not a meal.

Gideon loves to smell things

I tried to convince Micah that this was fun,
but he was pretty sure it was not.
Too close to bedtime, I guess?
Right after this picture was taken, Micah
grabbed that egg and tossed it across the room.
Maybe next year . . .

counting and sorting

I had to include this picture,
just because I love this boy's eyelashes

Isaac, Josiah, Gracie, and Gideon
(Micah and Blessing were too tuckered out
from our day at the lake to join in)

Now that the kids are all tucked into bed, 
I am off to fill some Easter baskets and hide some eggs.  
Wonder what Gideon will think of that?
