Easter Visions

Easter was a quiet day at home. We spent most of our time doing activities with the kids, cooking and playing games.

Tatum made this great three-dimensional card at school. The bunny's ears and legs move around and he is supposed to hold things like decorated eggs and carrots on the indicated place on his tummy. He must have hidden the eggs and eaten the carrots. :)
We waited until today and made egg dying and decorating a family event. After careful handling by Rikard and Keeli, we 19 eggs to color. Don't white eggs make a fantastic, clean canvas?We spilled ONLY one (1) container of dye liquid and thankfully it left no permanent stain on the table, chairs, floor and clothing it hit.

We tried all sorts of things, drawing on the eggs with a wax crayon, adding stickers, shrink wraps and of course, that childhood favorite - double dipping. We have some nicely colored eggs to enjoy eating over the next few days.
Easter was also a cold, windy and wet day here. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of new baby goats, but another day has passed without any new members of the pasture gang. Two of Tatum's goats are in the final weeks of gestation and everyone is checking them throughout the day. These are all experienced nannies, however they are both expecting multiples.

Keeli finished this great Easter bunny portrait during her quiet time at daycare last week. Isn't she great with her color combinations? She has such dramatic artistic freedom!
