Easter and a birthday

The past couple of weekends have been busy, full of good things! Easter Sunday was great, the Gstraps and los Claytons enjoyed a great service at our new church, with plans for an easter egg hunt and sledding in the afternoon.

Earlier in the week we’d already dyed a batch of eggs, and because of sheer boredom, the boys had done MANY easter egg hunts before sunday actually arrived. Those eggs got WORKED so we needed to make more. These ones I did myself and just used plain, old food coloring. I have to say, it was less fuss and these ones look better so I think we’ll be old school next year and do it the old-fashioned way!

After getting a bite to eat after church, we all suited up – hot cocoa in hand and headed to the mountain for some sledding. Getting everyone ready was NOT easy and by the time we got there, the boys were pooped.

**The egg hunt never happened, the boys had enough from the 3 dozen they did earlier in the week. A photo op missed, but I know next year to make them wait for it! :)**

Time to head home for some dinner and strawberry shortcake. My plan was to use some canned strawberries hanging out in the pantry, but I opened them and saw this…

[Gross! I should have known, I was looking for more at the store and they didn’t have any canned strawberries. Next time let’s get the real thing, ay?]

The following weekend we headed to Springfield to help celebrate Rebekah’s (a younger sister) 12th birthday.
