Easter Fun!

 Easter weekend was filled with fun for all of us!  On Friday, we joined Larry's class party and egg hunt.  Mr. S. was worried that there weren't going to be enough eggs, but as it turns out, the parent volunteers really had to watch out... there were so many eggs that we accidentally stepped on some while trying to hide others... Dawna and Naomi both got to join in the classroom games since a couple kids were absent on Friday!  It worked out perfectly! (except I forgot my camera...)

Saturday Weston came down early and we dyed eggs.  We got a kit that included "velvet" stickers that you could design and stick on the eggs. Dawna very creatively made a brown egg (with her art knowledge that purple and orange make brown, she double dyed the egg to get the right color) and then made a great velvet carrot! That was her favorite one!
 Each of the kids had their own buddy to dye with.  Larry was paired with Daddy, Xochitl with Weston, and Dawna with me!
 On Sunday, we did an old Koberstein tradition: hiding jelly beans (not Easter eggs) all over and hunting for them!  Wes and Jon did the hiding, but we all did the finding and eating of the jelly beans!
Here's Xochitl finding a trail of beans leading to a "jackpot" pile!

Later we went to Nana Papa's house for an egg hunt and dinner.  Uncle Lynn met us there to enjoy the festivities!
My kids got new Sunday clothes for Easter this year.  The girls were really excited, so Larry tried to join in the excitement, but let's face it, he just doesn't go crazy over clothes the way the girls do... 
But look how cute he is!  I LOVE Argyle sweaters! 

 Dawna helped me pick out the girl's dresses.  She wanted to match with Xochitl, but did NOT want another pink dress, so we went with the blue and green floral.  Thank you, Costco, for carrying dresses with sleeves!
NOTE: These were NOT made from old curtains! Geez, Jon!
We finished the evening playing Topple.  Look at the cute brothers! I know it's not the best picture ever, but it's proof Lynn was there!  Happy Easter everyone!

Look at your parents' awesome yard! Is it finished now?

I didn't think the dresses looked like curtains. :)

That's too funny about the girls getting excited about clothes but Larry not. I got Adele's Easter dress from Costco too. Didn't bother with the boys; they usually refuse to wear anything I ask them to wear (i.e., Samuel wouldn't wear green on St. Patrick's day, but finally got into it one week later and wore all green the following Sunday). That's a beautiful egg, Dawna!

The yard is not quite done... It might never be, but it does look awesome and is very functional with one big lawn, a great pathway around it, two swings, and garden boxes... Come to think of it, I should post about that too.. I have some great pictures of the yard all torn up...

Fun to read about your Easter! And that picture of Dawna looks exactly like a little blonde Deeb :-) So cute!
