We've been kinda busy around here lately.  And really tired.  Sam had a hard time adjusting back to sleeping by himself in his room once we came home from vacation and he has been keeping me up all night and getting up toooo early in the morning.  And if he hasn't been waking me up, Poppy and Marc are waking me up with their coughs.  Every night for over a week.  But as of yesterday, Sam finally seems to be back on track, and hopefully Marc and Poppy are getting over their coughs, so this mama should be coming back to life soon...

Here's what we have been up to...

We did a fun craft to decorate paper easter eggs.  First, you cut out large easter egg shapes out of thick paper.  Then fill a tray with shaving cream... 

smooth it out a little bit...

dribble a few lines of different colors of paint and then gently run a chopstick to marble it...

smoosh the paper easter eggs into the shaving cream/paint mixture...

when you pull it out, you'll have peaks of shaving cream and paint...

and then you take a squeegee and gently scrape the shaving cream off...

and you are left with this cool marbled easter egg!

we have these beauties hanging all over our house now...

................

we re-organized kitchen cupboards (which is always so much more fun with my two little helpers)...


.....................

Sam and I made these cupcakes while Poppy was at school yesterday and then when she got home, Poppy decorated them...

didn't they turn out cute?!...

we brought out easter cupcakes over to Poppy's cousin's house for an easter egg dyeing party...

and an easter egg hunt!  At first, Sammy wasn't sure what this was all about...

but once he caught onto the fact that there were treats inside of the eggs, he took off running...


Lots more easter egg hunts and family parties to come this weekend...

Happy Easter!
We did the painting craft on the weekend too - they are so pretty!
Alex has been getting up earlier too for some reason... the full moon?
