coloring eggs

These are a couple of pictures I forgot from the last post. The kids counted up how many eggs they found and Molly thought that was a good time to start eating candy!

This is actually the first time we have ever colored Easter eggs with our kids, I know I'm a horrible mother. I bought two egg dyeing kits on clearance after Easter when thomas was very small, and I always meant to do it the next year, and the next year, and the next year. Well we finally did it, and the kids had a great time!

The finished products!

Easter 2009

Ready for the Easter Egg Hunt, we decided to do our own and not fight the crowds at the Edmond Easter Egg Hunt.

Molly did pretty well after I showed her a couple, she found a few on her own.

Thomas and Abby searching for the last few eggs.
Ready for church all in our new outfits.

Toby had to work, so he didn't get a new outfit!

While driving home this afternoon, we saw a pair of ducks walking down the sidewalk in front of our house. We quickly pulled into the garage and the kids ran in and to get bread. Both Thomas and Abby fed the ducks a piece of bread while Molly watched. After they both ate a piece of bread, the ducks settled down on our lawn (I guess they knew a good thing when they saw it). The kids kept running to the windows to watch the ducks. Finally we let Molly go out and chase the ducks off. She ran toward the ducks and when they didn't instantly fly away, Molly got worried. The ducks then looked at her and her courage failed...she ran away while the ducks just kept looking at her. Finally Thomas and Abby showed Molly how to chase away birds and ran screaming at the ducks. They flew across the street and settled on the neighbor's lawn. Once they were across the street, Molly's courage returned and she yelled at the long as they stayed on their side of the street.
