Monkey Bread and Egg dye

Today was busy. It is the first Easter with the kids. Last year they were hunting eggs in their foster home, now they are hunting eggs in their forever home. I couldnt really tell you what I was doing last year at Easter, because I dont remember...I went to church, thats about all I know for sure, oh and I probably ate ham for dinner. Everything has changed...Im dying eggs now once again yearly, and I had to hide easter eggs and easter baskets tonight. Its a special day tomorrow...the celebration of Christ rising from the dead, and another "first" for us with our kids. T has had the Easter experience with his kids, who are grown now, and so he is experiencing it again, but for me it is pretty much completely new, and Im thrilled.

When you go from having no kids to suddenly having three, it brings back so many memories of childhood, and you start to compare, and even try to copy some things. I wonder if in the morning my dogs will lead the kids to their baskets and to the eggs like my dog did when I was a kid. I wonder if Ill forget where I hid some of the eggs, like I think my mom did. I guess Ill find out tomorrow....Here are some pics of our Easter preperations...

It's looks like you had tons of fun!

It's always fun for me to incorporate some of the things my parents did. Takes me down memory lane...

"Monkey Bread and Egg Dye" - sounds like a vinyl album name.

P.S. Love the super Easter-y hula girl tablecloth.
