After the egg hunt (and a nap) we headed to Grandma's house to decorate eggs with the cousins.
|Aunt K and Cousin B getting started|
(cousin C was wandering around watching)
|Jonny, Abi, and Nathan watching and waiting for their turn.|
|Daddy came in when they were about done and helped with E.|
|Cousin E was out with his Daddy and Grandpa planting potatoes...so he did his at a different time.|
After the eggs were decorated and dinner was done, Grandma got out the Easter Cookie story and make the Resurrection Cookies with the kids. Considering the chaos, I think it went very well.
|gathering around to listen to Grandma|
|beating the pecans|
|watching the egg whites whipped|
|Jonny got in trouble by touching the beating bowl and had to sit out..|
this was his "i'm not happy" face
|adding their pecans to the bowl|
|putting the cookies on the sheet...this was QUITE the mess...lol|
|Then they taped the oven shut and waited until the next day to see what happened.|
We are so very thankful that our children can enjoy these activities with Grandma and a few of the cousins. Even though we all have different ways of celebrating, it always warms my heart when our children can make memories with Grandma and Grandpa that draw them closer to God too!
