Easter Eggs!

What better way to keep a sick toddler occupied on a rainy day than to give him "Cars" inspired stickers and colors to make Easter eggs! 

I have to say that my walk through Target to find candy for our Easter egg hunt on Sunday was kind of disturbing... it was like Christmas!  There were toy cars, dolls - you name it - but packaged in pink/purple and stamped for Easter - so now people are expected give gifts?

The gift, my friends, was given in Jesus Christ - the reason we celebrate Easter in the first place. Easter is now a Deja Vu of Christmas.  Anyhow, I was shocked at how far beyond a simple basket things have gone.  Noah will make eggs, will find them when hidden, and will get a chocolate something or other as he gets older - but he won't be getting toys.   I think Christmas and his birthday (and 6/10 trips to Target) are sufficient for him.  Just my 2 cents.

So Crazy!

Anyhow, here are our pics!

Amen sista! BUT I hope those pop ice cream cones I have left over from last year don't count as toys :) Remember how much fun the kids had with them? I bet if I put a "Jesus Lives" sticker on them I can count them as a spiritual gift, he he! Will miss u terribly this Easter!
