Happy Easter! Frohe Ostern!

A quick couple of "catch up" photos before we get to the Easter morning goodness!

This is what we woke up to Thursday morning. Two inches of snow!!! UGH! We had finally seen the last of it, the sun had come out and we had milder temperatures....the day before! I was planning to have an outside Easter egg hunt, so this was especially heartbreaking!!!
Stupid German winters!!!

On Facebook Friday morning, I saw that our local Outdoor Recreation office was offering a trip to go sky diving, with tandem jumping! Just last week Thomas mentioned that he always wanted to do this, so I called him up at work and he was able to secure the last slot! So next Friday, he'll be leaving very early in the morning to do this! Crazy fool, lol!!! Best part, besides having him live out a dream of his, is that he told me to buy ANYTHING I WANTED!!!! Roger that, First Sarge!!! :D

Yesterday was the Battalion Easter Egg hunt. Everyone was asked to bring a baked good to share. I had the "bright idea" to make mini brownie cups, and add jellybeans on top to make it look like a nest. Only it was my I didn't have any directions to follow!!! I only messed up five in the learning curve, so that's not too bad. It's 15-17 minutes in a 350* oven, in case you were wondering. ALSO, add the jellybeans after you bake them, immediately after taking out of the oven. If you bake them with them on top, they just sink down and if you split the baking time, they just melt and get all gooey looking.
At least when we arrived people knew what it was! LOL!

Bella colored this mask and then hopped all around, lol!

They had lots of games set up, but she mostly played basketball.

On the egg hunt!

Bella's haul!
(Allyson, you'll notice I allowed her to use MY Sock Monkey basket!)

Our Game of Thrones family sigil!!

Easter Morning!!!!
As usual, Bella was very deprived of goodies!!

Happy Easter, Bella!

Time to find the eggs!

That was A LOT of eggs for me, I mean the Easter Bunny!, to fill!

Daddy opening up the toys.

Bella checking out the candy!

First bite of chocolate!

Definitely Bella approved!!!

Walking, talking pony toy. VERY annoying, lol!

Easter morning carnage!

Cute little bunny!

I made scrambled eggs and sausages for breakfast, before the sugar highs started getting too out of control! I've also stripped and remade both beds, and started the laundry. No days off for Mommies!!!! I think we will continue our tradition from last year and have Easter pizza for dinner! I'm just too tired to make a full, fancy dinner! We were out and about most of the day yesterday (errands and Battalion party), so we will be coloring eggs after Bella has her nap. We have four different kits, so we should have some fun ones this year!!
