outside fun

A little yard work outside. We now have two raised beds ready for plants, thanks to Jason.

Had a playdate at the park and a friend found this little robin mama sitting on her nest. I went back today and she was turned around, with her tail feathers sticking out.

Can see her face a little from the other side but there are a lot more branches in the way.

creative snack

Xander combined his love for crafts and food today with a creative snack recipe he found online.

He came to me with the instructions copied onto paper and all of the supplies ready on the table. My knife skills were brought into the project but he took care of the rest.

It’s funny he wanted to make an extra for Isaac but forgot about Simon. Typical! Worship the older sibling, forget about the younger. hehe!

and from the back…

Lately, believe it or not, Isaac and Simon are playing video games a lot together in two player mode. Here they are playing lego Batman while Xander watches.

It’s funny how it was always Simon and Xander playing together and Isaac and Xander playing together, but not usually ever Isaac and Simon. Now I see one tall kid and one shrimpy kid standing next to each other playing a video game together, paying no attention to the fact that one is three and one is almost nine.

Simon is getting pretty darn good too!

egg crazy…

A little while ago we found this website with funny egg photos the kids and I got a kick out of. This sweet one is my fav:

Xander was inspired and wanted to draw faces on our eggs. We’ve had fun adding in some dialogue with each egg as we crack them open for cooking…

Easter egg activities started today (Saturday) with an egg hunt at the pool for Isaac…

And then some egg dying at home. We’ll be going to our friends house for egg hunting tomorrow so I didn’t even bother to boil these eggs. Have I mentioned how gorgeous I think brown eggs turn out? The colors are so rich.

Xander asked me all day when it was going to be egg dying time. He is happy now.
