Easter 2011

We had such a fun Easter! Gavin started the morning by searching for the goodies the Easter Bunny had brought him. He looked under the coffee table first and then he looked behind the couch and... there it was! I guess the Easter Bunny didn't hide it very well! Next year it might be a little tougher! Gavin was so excited and loved going through all the little treasures he received.

Later, we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house for an Easter egg hunt in their backyard and some egg painting. Gavin had a blast! He loved searching for the eggs in the backyard and would even tell us what color they were as he picked them up.

After the egg hunt, Gavin got to paint Easter eggs for the first time. It was so much fun for us to see how much joy it brought to him! Luckily, Grandma is very prepared and had a large plastic table cloth for us to use for the occasion (which came in handy when one of the cups filled with egg dye got knocked over). At one point, Gavin plopped an egg in a cup of dye and said, "Egg's swimming." Hmmm... Well, yes, Gavin, the egg is swimming. Good observation.

After dying the eggs beautiful Easter pastels, Gavin decorated some of them with stickers. He did a great job decorating his eggs and we are so thankful for our sweet boy who makes all the holidays so much more fun!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog recently. It's nice to have a new reader, and one who is such an encouragement to me! Life has given you some struggles as well, but it looks as if you've all pulled through with flying colors! Your son is so handsome - never would have guessed your photos are of the same little guy!

    Blessings to you today!
