Trying to think of some new ways to decorate eggs I found some ideas on the Disney Family Fun site and Hayden, Keaton and I tried them out. 
First we colored our eggs with crayons while they were still hot, the wax melted and was supposed to make swirly designs.

This is what it was supposed to look like and how ours turned out.
 Next we used craft paint.  We crumbled some aluminum foil, put paint on them, then wrapped the foil around the eggs.
Again, how they are supposed to look, and how ours turned out.

 And though they are all less than perfect it was a good time and the boys were very proud of their work.
 Easter morning came and the Easter Bunny kept it pretty simple this year.  The kids got some snack food, a toy, some books and socks.  But the amazing thing about kids is they only know what you tell them to know, so everyone was super excited about their snacks, and didn't realize other kids get big presents or tons of candy.

 The easter bunny hid a few eggs out in our front yard, that was exciting too.  Some eggs even had quarters in them!  The big boys loved it and Conner happily traded his quarter for some jelly beans.

 And last but not least, our boys in their Sunday best.  All dressed up and ready to go to church on Easter sunday.
We are very blessed to have such good, happy and healthy kids.  Easter is such a fun family time,  but also a time for us to be thankful for our Savior, the example he showed for us in his life and the life he gives to us because of his death.
