Easter Week Fun


We did school the week before Easter because we took our Spring break the week I came home from Ghana. I wanted to do some different things for school. One of the favorite ideas was to divide everyone into teams. Each team was to prepare our dinner for one nite that week. It was extremely popular activity . They planned the meal and each one included a dessert....Funny we don't eat dessert every nite but we did last week. we all loved it so much we are going to do this one week out of the month from now on. Here is a pizza cookie the team of Ava, Lily, Isaac and Tia made. 




Of course egg coloring is always a hit with the kids too.












We dye hard boiled eggs and lots of raw eggs...the trick is to keep them apart : )

It was an Eggcellent Day



















It was filled with lots of fun, food, and more fun. The weather was perfect . The kids had a blast and we are all tired from lots of good times together. Jacob even stopped by all day and it was good to visit with him. I would say we all had an eggcellent day for sure. Happy Easter from the Briggs Bunch
