Croatian Bread Dolls

I found a really cool Easter celebration book online ( that the boys and I are using to choose an activity each day to help us get excited for Easter. Yesterday, we made Croatian bread dolls in honor of my sister, Emilia. Caden and Vance really enjoyed dying the eggs and rolling the dough. They tasted so good, thanks, in large part, to the frozen bread dough (yes-I cheated).

Just trying to teach him to use his powers for good. He has loved both of his lessons, but I had to bribe him with gum to put on the shirt (you can tell that he is holding gum inside the puffed-out cheek).

Patriotic Show

At the end of February, Caden participated in the 1st Grade Patriotic show. It was so cute! The kids sang a bunch of my favorites, like the Marine Corps song and "You're a Grand Ol' Flag." Caden didn't smile during the program too much, but afterwards, he told us that he had fun.
