That evening we dyed eggs. The threat of spills and Joci dropping eggs into the mugs and breaking them made Justin a little stressed. :) And when green dye finally spilled all over the table, floor, and the two-year-old, I think Justin had a small coronary.
After Joci went to bed, we tried dyeing eggs the Swiss style with various degrees of success. Read more about it here.
Sunday morning the Easter "munny" had left some eggs around our house. Joci saw one as soon as she woke up and screamed, "CANDY!" We had her find her basket first and she was very excited to have her first Barbie doll. She wouldn't let it go. She did a really good job of spotting the eggs and putting them in the basket. Every time we would open one and get the candy out, though, she thought the egg was broken and tried to throw it in the "bobbage" (garbage).
I didn't get a great picture of Joci's Easter dress, but she looks like cotton candy and she loves it. She also got a cute pink hat and pink purse for her birthday that match perfectly. We talked to Joci about Jesus's resurrection but every time Joci heard the word "Jesus" she exclaimed, "AMEN!"
The weather was so nice we just had to go outside for a bit. Joci tripped in the driveway and scraped her face, but she didn't even cry.
We had ham and twice baked potatoes and we're still feasting on leftovers. It was a good day.
Oh, and Joci finished Easter with a swim in the dog water. She hasn't done this since she was about 13 months old. Oh well!
Hope you had a happy Easter!
