We did however, get a few pictures (not of him actually smiling for the camera, you'll notice that these days those are few and far between) but pictures none the less of Owen doing some other Easter festivities. Like... dyeing eggs:
And then realizing that he can stick his fingers right through the egg shell and crush the egg (his favorite part of dyeing eggs):
Saturday was the annual ward Easter egg hunt. I loved how our ward did it. They had one section for nursery age kids and another section for all of the other primary age kids so that kids Owen's age would actually have a chance of gettting some eggs for themselves.
Sunday we woke up to find the Easter Bunny had visited our house and left treats and a present for Owen. I'll be honest, I was probably more excited about him finding the basket than he was but once he found it, he was pretty pumped.
Easter afternoon we had some friends invite us over for some super yummy dinner (Thanks Katie!), some egg hunting and some frosting of sugar cookies:
|Super excited about finding eggs and other goodies around the James' house.|
|Getting ready for the cookie making to begin|
|Owen's favorite thing about the cookies: Coloring them with a cookie|
marker (what a great invention) and sticking his fingers through the cookies
to make the biggest mess possible.
|Mmmmm... yummy (just the frosting though. He wasn't having anything|
to do with the actual cookie.
Such a great Easter!
P.S. Don't mind the raggamuffin-ness of our child. I do try to comb his hair once in a while, it just doesn't ever stay and since I feel like he is the cutest thing ever regardless of uncombed hair, I belive every one else probably thinks he is too. Then I start blogging, look at the pictures and realize that the whole lot of us are kind of a mess... oh well.
