Once we got back to the house we checked out the loot. Garytt got all candy & one little alien. Mackenzie got all animals & aliens. So, they traded for what they wanted out of the other kid's pile. (Pictures are awful...forgot to change the setting on the camera.)
Later that night we dyed our eggs. I had a parent-fail here...forgot to make sure we actually had food coloring. Luckily, there was blue, green, and yellow. I also found the gel food coloring and it could also be used for egg dying. So, we were able to make six different colors (that's as many coffee mugs as I had anyway.)

I didn't fix a huge meal...just ham, mac and cheese, green beans and asparagus, and bread. Then, for dessert we had Grandma's favorite...Pavlova! YUM!!!
From our family to yours, HAPPY EASTER!!!!
"Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed." Isaiah 53:4-5 (NIV)
