we began by trying to decide which toys and non-toy things "we" would play with first. many things (and i stress many) were chosen and then quickly abandoned.
it was now time for the main event of the day- coloring easter eggs. katie had brought over some egg-coloring cups, so we began choosing the colors and dropping the tablets into the vinegar.
much smelling and almost tasting was done at this point. josie soon got the hang of it and the eggs went in at an amazing speed- (i might say too fast- many were dropped in and cracks were heard.)
our finished product!
we next started some laundry and of course that's where the piano is, sssooo...
the shopping cart was always a hit with all my kids and also the grandkids. reilly and ellie get very competitive over who will use it first- josie is sole owner of it when no one else is around!
i didn't get a photo of lunch, but we ate in the living room- yes, you heard that right! the table was still under repair after the egg fiasco-whoops, activity, so we pulled chairs up to the coffee table and ate pb and j and yogurt there. a trip behind the chair and, ah-ha, it was time to change a diaper :o(. (where's that elmo potty chair when you need it?)
we were then off to the apartment where a nap was had while cookies were baked, and the quiet was enjoyed. a trip back to granny's house and before we knew it- our time together was over. all in all a fun, semi productive day. 'til next time....
