Here's the Easter baskets filled with goodies. Jordan got this beautiful book about fairies (I'll talk about this another day, I just have to share) and a Webkinz skunk. Josey got an Ipod card, new Ipod headphones and a teeny bop magazine...plus the usual Whoppers Eggs and Reese's Eggs. The girls have used these same green baskets I bought at Target years and years ago. I guess they're a tradition now because every Easter they dig them out, no other basket will do.
My folks came over after church for Easter dinner..gotta love spiral cut ham, cheesy potatoes and mom's chocolate layer dessert! After dinner, Jordan showed us her new fairy book. It was based in the year that Grandpa was born..1933. The book gives some very good information on how to attract flower fairies.
We barely got up Easter decorations this year. Jordan and I pulled these few things out on Saturday. Her colorful, frosted sugar cookies made an adorable centerpiece...that didn't last long once everyone figured out they were actual cookies. Interactive, edible centerpieces...a whole new concept.
And of course we dyed eggs. This year our egg dye kit was glitter themed. You colored the eggs, dipped them in this liquid glue then put them in a bag with glitter and shook them. Very pretty. Next year Josey wants to pick the egg dye kit and she says it's going to be the camo one we told her about. She spent most of the mornings and evenings this weekend turkey hunting with Eric so her attire all weekend was camo colors. No turkey though. Jordan also went to see the new Hanna Montana movie with some friends. She gave it two thumbs up!
