Easter Update

Hope everybody's had a great easter!! We had a nice relaxing easter. On Saturday morning we had the traditional egg hunt. It was the first time for Lucy to go and hunt the eggs.. She loved it!! Once she had one egg there was no stopping here. She very quickly found out that you had to unwrap them first (foil doesn't taste that good) before you could eat them. So what she did was find lots of eggs then unwrap them and take a little bite out of all of them because she was in too much of a rush to unwrap the next one. Was very cute. Ruby was racing around with a little container that very quickly was too small for the amount of eggs she found. As soon as she had a bigger bowl she was happy again and squealed every time she found another egg. Chris was a very lovely big brother and helped the little ones find all their eggs.

Later that morning we went for a walk to a nice playground for the kids where they had a lot of fun. It was nice to be able to go there with the five of us because usually it's just me and the girls.

On monday we went to see Allan's uncle Harry. He is in the hospital not doing all too well. He's such a lovely man. He's 95 but as sharp (and cheeky) as anything. There were some of his children as well that I had never met. It was so funny to see them because I could see so many of Allan's sisters and nieces in them. Quite amazing!!

The rest of the weekend was just relaxing, seeing some friends, eating some more eggs and I spend quite a bit of time scrapping. I spend a lovely time at scrapbooking top 50 at their easter cyber crop. There were 3 challenges and one participation challenge. The challenges were to use the blank space on your photo to journal on, a sketch that you had to scrap in monochromatic colours, and a LO in purple and white with a hint of green. The participation challenge was to make at least 2 cards form the same cardstock and PP. I made 6!! I won't show the cards because I might send them to one of you :))

Here are all the LO's
