Last Tuesday we dyed Easter eggs. Gabe LOVED it. Here he is closely inspecting the fizzing dye.
Cups of dye.
Eager helper with his onlooking brother.
The onlooking brother.
The end result. Pretty. Gabe had a wonderful time finding the Easter eggs after I hid them. He also had a wonderful time screaming at the baby at the top of his lungs to get away from his eggs. The baby had a wonderful time squeezing the eggs until they cracked, and then carefully picking the shell off. Hmmm.
Gabe couldn't make it until bedtime after all that excitement, and conked out on the floor in his dinosaur blanket after supper. Sweetheart sugarpie.

On Friday my beloved friend Emily came to visit me. She now lives only two hours away instead of ten since I moved so handily close to Arlington. Happy sigh. I would request that you would all politely divert your eyes from the horrible picture of me and direct them to her. Or maybe she has differing opinions. I just had to have a picture of us together.
On Saturday night, Sonya the Excellent Babysitter came over to watch the chillin's, since Tim was working on his sermon for the next day, and Emily and I vamoosed it off to Salisbury to shop, eat Indian food and yap for hours. We had an absolutely wonderful time. Thanks SO MUCH, Sonya.

For Easter lunch, we feasted on pork roast, sour cream potatoes, and stir-fried sugar snap peas for lunch on new plates that Emily had brought us. The daffodils on the table were an Easter gift from someone at church and are so beautiful!
On Sunday afternoon, I gave the boys their Easter baskets, to their sheer delight.
The baskets contained some chocolate, some fruit snacks, rice krispie treats, Magic Wand lighted sticks that have both already broken, some Juicy Fruit gum, some V-8 juice (keeping the tradition alive, Mom), and a Car's watch for Gabe and some sunglasses for Israel.
And then my friend Emily left. Sadness. Thanks so much for coming, Emily. It's so great to have friends like you where you can always pick up where you left off. Come back very soon.
