Here is when they were all working hard to plant a little garden in Grandma and Grandpa Nelson's back yard. After we got about half way done, Spencer and Connor kind of flamed out and just wanted to play.
It's been many years since there was a garden there, so we had to dig up the grass and then fertilize the dirt. It was a hard job. Joseph got hot so he took off his shirt.
Elizabeth just watched with Grandma Deone.
The final product. Spencer made the little signs that marked what is where.She likes her new dress.
Since I refused to allow my photo to be taken all bent over (hello~huge butt) gardening, here is a nice little photo of me in my fancy $5 glasses from Wal-Mart. (It was right before the gardening)
Joseph holding Elizabeth while I prepared all the egg dyes.
Joseph and Spencer writing on their eggs.
Connor's finished coloring. Next he will use a marker to draw on his eggs (and his face).
We watched. (Mom, do I look tired?)
I love the casual way Travis is coloring the eggs. Notice his hand in his pocket?
My little beauty!
Joseph got a Monster Jam game for the computer...that didn't work! It said for Vista, which is what we have, but it still doesn't work. He was bummed. We're working on finding something to make it up to him.
Spencer got a notebook and pens.
Connor got a bug catching kit. Like his orange punch mustache and permanent marker beard?
Elizabeth's first Easter basket. A chocolate bunny and more headbands!
