Easter 2011

Unfortunately, we had a very wet and soggy Easter this year. We got 12.5 inches of rain over a week's time. I was able to go out and hide eggs for Becca once on Friday evening in a brief period of sunshine.

Friday night, we started dyeing eggs and finished up Saturday morning while we were waiting on Pop and Karen to arrive. We'd planned on going to Wynne for the weekend, but just couldn't get it together. Thursday night rolled around and laundry wasn't done and backs weren't packed. Lee and I were just exhausted from the week and we couldn't bring ourselves to road trip. Thanks Dad, for coming to see us instead! Of course, it would have been nice if the rain had stopped for Becca to play soccer and hunt eggs. Instead, we had a nice visit cooped up in the house. We didn't even get to dress up in our Easter best because I wasn't getting them out to go to church in that mess. Six whole days of storms!! Crazy.

We took some video of Becca's first time to color eggs. I think she had a great time.

As fate would have it, it's probably a good thing we didn't leave town. Figured out we have hail damage on our roof--Lee had to patch it or we might have come home to a flooded house. The insurance claims guy was supposed to come on Easter Sunday, but couldn't due to more storms. Moved it to today, but he's had to cancel again due to MORE RAIN TODAY. So, hopefully next week? Hail damage on the truck, too. Woohoo.
