Easter and a little dose of Karma...

It's my own fault

In my last post I wrote about how me and the boys always catch every germ going while hubby remains healthy as a horse

Why on earth would I write such a thing? I should have known the moment I pressed publish I was messing with karma or something like that...

While staying at my parents my dad came down with terrible sickness and diarrhoea. I really really hoped Isaac and Lucas wouldn't catch it.

They didn't

Nor did I

Can you guess who did?

Yep, poor hubby he was so so ill.

With that and being away for Easter I haven't managed to share our Easter stuff with you. So lets do that shall we? Because although Easter is 'so' last week it will be much more pleasant than sharing the details hubby's violent tummy bug with you.

Trust me on this.

The day before Easter Sunday we made Easter treats...
 As usual it got messy...

We used natural dyes on our boiled eggs again this year...
I'm not gonna lie, I thought they came out awesome...


The next day the boys awoke to a little surprise waiting for them...

Then it was the morning egg hunt...

Inside each egg were some chocs and a little friend...

Isaac feels like he scored big this year...

The chicks were not impressed by their new surroundings one little bit...



Even when played with...

I can't imagine why?


We also gave them dinosaur eggs. Because those are so easy to come by...

You put the eggs in water...

And wait for them to dissolve to reveal your new dinosaurs...

They loved them so much, it seemed like the perfect present...
So I don't want to talk about the fact within a day we had lost most of the parts for both dinosaurs. We have a head from one and a tiny arm from the other *sigh*...

At least they are still enjoying their colouring books...
Man my windows are dirty...

Then we were off to visit Tim's parents and later my parents too.

Blissfully unaware that soon hubby would be making a close personal connection with the toilet bowl and we would be house bound...

Poor Hubby.
