Happy Easter!

Preparing for Easter!

It's been a busy weekend! We started Friday off with decorating Easter eggs, Andy thought it was a good idea (In all of his 11 year old wisdom) to write "poop" on one of the eggs and I did a Union Jack egg. All was going well until early evening when Hannah began vomiting; it lasted through the night, and she woke this morning with a fever, she's rested all day and feels tons better. I found a bit of time to get the Easter Baskets made, I always love doing that!
Tomorrow we are having an Easter egg hunt, and a traditional ham dinner with sweet potatoes and the works..
I'm on my phone which always seems to post my photos all kinds of crazy, so they may be in no particular order.
Here is our weekend so far . .
Have a wonderful and safe Easter!!
Nothing like being 11 and thinking this is hilarious!

Easter Eggs in England

Easter eggs in England??? Chocolate perfection in the shape of an egg, filled with your favorite chocolate!

Austin, Texas kite festival

Today was the kite festival at Zilker Park in Austin. It was nice... near 80 degrees and the kites were fun. Some of the kites were HUGE!! (Everything is bigger in Texas right?!). I've included a couple of photos of the kites today, we'll definitely go again next year!
6 more days until I leave for London and see my Cockney!!
