Just what I needed- another way to waste time on the computer!

Ok, so my cousin and BFF Kathy (hey Kathy!!) sent me a link to a program (service?) I saw several months ago and forgot about- Oh my gosh, I was up till 1am last night playing with it! Here's what you do- download their program (service?), register, click things you're interested on a list, then when you're all set up, you just click a little button at the top of your screen that says "Stumble". How cool- it gives you a different website every time and all related to whatever you said you're interested in! I clicked things like K-12 education, optical illusions (the boys love those), cooking, art, and it has given me some really cool sites! Here are some of the ones I've liked the most: this one teaches you all about how to make those really intricate Chinese knots, you never know when you'll use that kind of info! I love these kinds of things, they're so cute and can't be that hard to make, right?? The boys loved this one, they were amazed! Hello- easy kid-made Mother's Day presents! VERY funny, Kate and I had fun laughing at some of these! because everyone that knows me knows I LOVE catalogs! Because, seriously?

So try it for yourself, see what kind of neat/odd/funny/gross/stupid things you can find!

Yet another Katie-created mess!

So she had a great time cracking the Easter eggs and "smooshing" them with a fork to help Mama make egg salad. So great, that this morning she cracked a raw egg on the kitchen table! She wants "mumbled" eggs for breakfast, guess I'd better get some boiled and ready to go!

Easter, Stover-style!

So coloring the eggs went well! I always worry when we mix dye and Stovers, but there were minimal messes and everything Cloroxed nicely! Jamie found a neat thing- it's like a top, but you put in a boiled egg, a few drops of the color that came with it, close the lid and pump the top. The egg gets bumped around and the color ends up looking marbled- very pretty!
The kids were very excited Easter morning! The EB left them lots of candy, plus movies for all 3, Webkinz for the boys and a Wonder Pets boat for Kate.
Church was great, we had a very nice sermon that made me cry! The boys stayed with us instead of going to children's church, so hopefully they got a lot out of it, too. It was hard picking clothes for K and I, I was dying to wear something spring-y, but it was in the 20s outside! Didn't manage to get any good pix, either- she was NOT cooperating! Same as usual, I guess!
