Then we dyed Easter Eggs after Dan got home. That was an experience. The kids really liked doing that and we ended up dying an extra dozen because they enjoyed it so much. Dan hates hard boiled eggs though, and the kids won't eat them either, so I gave a dozen away.
We had our own easter egg hunt outside with just our family, and then we went to the stake easter activity. I really wanted to focus on the real meaning of Easter this year on sunday and the stake provided easter eggs that instead of being filled with candy were filled with things about Easter and the Savior. Perfect! I was actually going to do that, so they saved me a step. It must have been inspired!
Sunday didn't quite go how I was planning. We never quite got to the eggs, but we did the Easter story a whole bunch and they both know it now. I made a little cut out from the Friend that tells the Easter story (if you want one for the kids to color it's in the new Nursery manual, which rocks by the way), so all during sacrament they were telling the story. According to Caden "Jesus died. 3 days he no dead anymore!" In fact, I'm a little concerned. They are now pretending to be Jesus, and that makes me really uncomfortable. Just not very reverent, but we're all learning so we'll figure something out. We had some friends over for dinner (that I butchered...it was awful, and I was totally embarrased) and played games. It was a good Easter.
