Did We Get Them All?

Photo-A-Day #3149

It has been a busy week around here. After Last Week’s unfortunate water issue with the outside sprinklers My Dad came over a couple of days this week to help me flush the lines and also clean up a bunch of the leaves and overgrown jungle of a yard.

Together we stuffed 32 of the 30 gallon lawn waste bags with leaves and sticks and you name it. The yard looks 100% better and this coming year the focus is to actually get a lawn growing in the back yard so that the kids have a nice place to play.

The next project for me is to clean out the garage once the city comes to pick up all the leaves. That way we can get Allison’s car into the garage when it snows and I can take the racks off my car. I’m pretty sure no more kayaking for me this year.

Easter Sunday today and the kids were wonderful. They cooperated pretty well when we got them up early for Church. They behaved pretty well in Church (Andrew was a bit fussy and had to go outside a few times). After Church we went over to my parents for Easter Brunch and an Easter egg hunt inside the house and outside the house.

Last night Allison and I stuffed the eggs that we had with Hershey bunnies, Kisses, Reeses Peanut Butter cups and York Peppermint patties. We emptied all of the bags too. So we had a lot of eggs. We also set up the kids Easter baskets and a note from the Easter Bunny explaining that he hid the eggs at Mem and Grandfather’s because our “naughty kitties” would have moved the hidden eggs all night long.

While Eva drew pictures in the kitchen my Dad and I put out the eggs in the front yard. We pretty much littered the yard with them so that they were easy enough for Andrew to find. Continue reading Watch Your Eggs
