Happy Easter and Project 365!

Hello!!!  I am wishing you a late Happy Easter!  I have an Easter card I made for my inlaws last minute to share with you:



The image is from The Greeting Farm it was a freebie on there blog here!  I made this card quite quickly in all honesty!  I may have forgotten that I needed an Easter card for my inlaws!  I colored the image with my derwent and prisma pencils!  I embossed in Chestunt the sentiment from Hero Arts.  Since I did emboss I am going to enter it into this week's Simon Says Challenge!  And added a flower given to me from my hostess sister Linda!  And ruffled some ribbon at the bottom!  I love ruffling ribbon!

I am also entering this into the Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge #51.  I had planned to and than forgot!  Luckily it's not over yet!  I was inspired by the pink and the baskets!


I am also going to do my Project 365 my way this post!  I am going to focus on Easter Weekend as it was very busy and lots to share!  But I did want to share some funny things Ariel said this week.  I was trying to convince Ariel to sing in the children's choir for Mother's Day and she said "I will if it's for Father's Day"  Yes she said that!  Than later I was "teaching" her my own Mommy is the best song trying to get her to sing along when she told me "I am not going to sing that song it's not for Daddy!"  Yoy hurt mommy much?  No I knew she was being silly!  And she is singing in the Childrens choir, I managed to convince her!  (It helped that a few girls from her class are!)

Thursday was Ariel's last day of school before Easter.  I decided to make her whole class treats again since I found a great idea here.  Here they are, they were a big hit:



Thursday was early dismissal so Ariel had a friend over to play for a bit:

 

Good Friday is a holiday here in Canada.  We had such a busy week it was very nice to be able to enjoy a day at home.  We also decorated Easter eggs with the kids, I have a bunch of cute photos notice the eggs and Carter in the next two photos:

I was trying to "help" him put in the eggs in the die but while taking these photos he put 3 eggs in one bowl of die himself!  And he throws them in!  Here are more:




We got a really cute set that had hats and hair and face stickers!  Ariel did that while Carter napped!  It was super fun!  (And I realize it's always this plate in photos, I must really like this plate!)

Here's a cute photo of us horsing around and cuddling on the couch (a good example of how when cuddling Ariel, Carter always has to get in on it!)



On Saturday Chad and I had a wedding to go to.  It was for his cousin, we had a nice time!  It was at a conservatory here are some pictures:




And here are our Easter photos, we left the kids some goodies from the Easter bunny on the coffee table, here they are after they woke up finding it:
After a packed great church service (love that it was packed!) We went to my parents for lunch.  I took some photos outside first:
