Happy Easter!!!

Last night we decorated Easter eggs. There were sponges that you could sponge paint with, but the boys decided they wanted to "sink" them and totally dye them. I tried sponge painting them, and it wasn't easy. We had some of these for breakfast this morning, and there are three left for a couple of sandwiches.

This was the Easter Loot pre-egg hunt. It rained last night, so the Easter Bunny hid his eggs inside. It was still fun. Darren woke up 6:45 and could only contain himself til 7. He woke Logan up, and the hunt was on. I will be to bed early tonight - I had stayed up til nearly one watching the original Ten Commandments.* It came on at eight! I watch that every Easter. I tried watching the remake earlier in the week, but I couldn't get into it. Too used to the original. Anyhoo, here's a few pics of the boys post-hunt.

Nanny and Grampy came down later in the morning. Logan got a Dora chocolate, and Darren got Spongebob. (She was going to get Logan a Patrick, but he spied Dora in the drug store and had to have her!) They each got two new shorts sets as well. Logan had to wear one of his, of course.

Daddy also sent two special Reese eggs home with the Easter Bunny. He's still stuck in Calgary. The eggs were hard to find! The bunny hopped up and put them on my living room ceiling fan!

Here are some not-very-good pictures of my finished Sockapalooza socks. Logan was all over me, so most of the pictures came out blurry. I'll try to take a few more later on. I still haven't blocked them yet. I'll probably do that tonight. Check out the previous post for changes I made to this pattern.

Must get going. Darren is waiting for the computer. Have a happy Easter everyone! Don't eat too much chocolate! I imagine my boys will be up for two days with the amount they ate today! I did get them to eat a good lunch, though. I was surprised. I am also finally working on my free patterns site. I haven't linked it yet - there's nothing on it. I just "opened" it up. I am working on a pair of socks right now using my self-striping sock pattern. I am working out any bugs, and as soon as I am confident that it is error-free I will post it and link it on the sidebar.

Happy knitting!

* Should have known better - I see it's on in five minutes! Could have watched it today since nothing else is on!

Love the socks. You did a great job.
No chocolate eggs at our house this year, but I hear they found some in Ottawa!!
Seems like Travis has been in Calgary for a while now. Any idea when he'll be home?

Hi Lexa,

Thanks for your kind comments about Caroline's rainbow sherbet socks. Your Yukon Leaves are gorgeous! Now I feel silly that I was excited about my little picot edging, those Yukons look complicated.

Your boys are adorable - looks like it was a fun Easter morning. As a mom of three girls it's fun to see the boy thing!
