Easter Egg Hunt

Basically what it sounds like. Pictures of an Easter Egg hunt.

Easter Egg Hunt

 My mom had her annual Easter egg hunt on Saturday.  They has their pictures taken before the egg hunt which is why they are wearing matching colors.   The kids were so excited and funny looking for the eggs in a mad panic.

Going through the spoils of the day.  Because we are bad parents we let Eli watch a PG-13 movie today so that he would share his candy with us while we watched it. Don't worry, I'm ashamed.

Funny pics of Eli

Eli had a great idea to make some money. He was pretty sure that he was going to make 100 dollars by playing his "drums".

I warned him that it probably wouldn't work but he was determined.  Luckily his father took some pity and put some coins in the bucket.

 After there were some coins in the bowl he tipped it so that passersby could see that you are supposed to put money in it.  
He also did some drum stick flips to increase the wow factor.

Unfortunately, we live in a cul-de-sac and only 2 cars passed by and really who would pay a kid money for beating on his tin garbage can.

April Fools

gross looking food ahead.

April Fools

I love to play jokes on Eli. He is pretty cute and usually says some funny stuff.  This year I saw these cupcakes on a blog and had to try them.  I usually make Eli a peanut butter sandwich for lunch everyday.  After he went to bed on March 31st I made these cupcakes so I could tell him that they were for his lunch.

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Mashed Potatoes

peas and carrots
The peas and carrots didn't fool him at all but the other 2 did. In fact, before he left for school he said that next year if I do this again to please not do the meatball one because it was making him sick to look at it. He said maybe I could do "green beans instead or something like that."  I actually agreed with him and took the cupcakes over to our neighbor so I didn't have to look at them anymore. The meatballs really did look real and it was kinda gross.

This video is kinda long but I was in no mood to go edit it. It's funny when he tastes one of "meatballs."
