Spring Break & Easter

My Sister-in-Law, Heather, and her son, Trevor, have been sick most of spring break. :(

Good news, they are feeling a LOT better, Trevor's still coughing though. Poor guy!!

We were still able to squeeze in some FUN time during the week. (updates & pics later) We also managed to take all 5 kids to Wal-Mart this afternoon to find some Easter candy to fill plastic eggs for the EASTER EGG HUNT at our house this weekend.

Plus, I finally found darling matching dresses & sandals for the girls, a nice dress shirt & tie for Nathaniel, and a cute dress shirt for Anson! YAY!!

Highlight of the evening - Heather & I had to go back to Wal-Mart to get more candy for the eggs (didn't get enough earlier) and found the rest of the stuff for kids' Easter baskets - ALONE without the kids!! It was so peaceful and quiet! Plus we didn't have any kids asking for this or that. We even had time to run to Target to get a new lunch box and backpack for Nathaniel (both of his broke - in his defense, his lunch box was older & the zipper gave out & his backpack I bought in the summer tore about a month after school started & he's been using his older worn out backpack).

Uh oh, just remembered the bags of goodies are still in the back of my van. Need to get those while kids are sleeping. tee hee :)

If you haven't seen the movie "Enchanted" yet, MUST GO SEE!!! It just came out on dvd this week. OH MY GOODNESS!!! It's so SWEET & CUTE!!! All of my kids loved it, including ME. Ben didn't get to watch it with us, but he'll get his chance I'm sure cuz they want to watch it again.

We've been watching Enchanted constantly, except when the kids took it to visit all the neighbors. We're definitely getting our money's worth outta that one!

I still need to get my Easter candy.

So agree with you about Enchanted. We ended up buying the DVD right after we saw it.
