After we were done, we started exchanging Easter morning memories with each other and I was relating a story about a dream that one of us kids had when we were little about seeing the Easter Bunny in our house and how he tripped on a pillow while hopping down the hallway. I remember it as a very dramatic, scarring dream (even though I'm not sure anymore if it was me who had the dream or one of my 6 siblings) for some reason and recall it every Easter. Nathan trumped it by a thousand, though when he told me about his recurring nightmare from when he was a kid. Apparently he dreamed (8 or 9 times) that the Easter Bunny came to his church every year to kill everyone. He looked just like a person in a bunny costume would if they were also holding a machine gun. No one was frightened, they just knew that he wanted them to line up youngest to oldest, and since Nathan was the youngest he knew he was going to be killed first. So, he went into the bathroom, opened the medicine cabinet mirror and found a box of heart shaped chocolates. He grabbed them so he could give them to God when he saw Him.......WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?????????????? Now, THAT is dramatic and scarring. I feel quite sure it has something to do with his present-day outlook on religion but feel too tired to analyze it.
Anyway, we had a fun day today with our friends the May-Ostendorps. We took a day trip to see a sculpture park they go to often in Loveland and to take a tour of the New Belgium brewery in Fort Collins. It was pretty gray and cold but a fun day all the same...the sculpture park is really cool and pictures don't do it justice but here are a few attempts:

Pink and Green Mama where you use a colander and food coloring and just sort of swirl it around. Really fun and easy and I love how they came out!
