An egg-cellent week

So, it is that time of year again and our family just finished filling two thousand Easter eggs for a community outreach that our church will be holding.
Fun, fun, fun, -until you pinch your skin in a closed egg. LOL   Am I the only one who does that?!
Over the weekend we all filled eggs while watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and got more than halfway done. (thanks Zac and Tiff for doing about a million of those two thousand!)  ; )

Then yesterday, I had Andrew do some awesome multitasking. -He had to fill eggs while listening to the autobiography of Frederick Douglas for school. -Homeschooling and community service all at once!

Joy baked 95 goodies for a fundraiser over the weekend and it was a long process. She was exhausted and grumpy and still had lemon bars in the oven at 10:30 PM and she had to be up at 5:30 the next day for the sale. Bless her heart!
 Hubby took her to the fundraiser at 6:00 AM the next morning and when I got up I saw this on the table:

How cute is a dad who cuts lemon bars for you using a yard stick?! : ) He said he made sure each one was exactly 3" x 2". Too cute!

This Saturday is Clean the Attic Day, heaven help us. Hopefully it will still be cool out otherwise we may sweat to death.

And Monday starts Spring Break, hooray! -Andrew's best friend is coming from CA to spend it us us. Joy and Andrew are egg-static about that. ; ) Should be fun!!!!
