If You Tell a Wish, Will it Still Come True?

We enjoyed our long Easter weekend a LOT.... maybe too much.

Friday morning we put together 42 treat-filled eggs to bring to a potluck we went to later in the day. The kids played outside for a while, and in the afternoon Scott took them to the church for some floor hockey in the gym (one of our favourite family activities) while I made parmesan chicken, potato salad and rosemary bread to bring to the potluck.

The kids enjoyed the egg hunt at the potluck get-together. Since we don't "do" the Easter Bunny at our house, this was their time to enjoy some chocolate and candy.

We rented the movie Enchanted and had a movie night on Saturday night. What a cute movie! Definitely a good one to see, if you haven't already. Loved it!

We decided to have our big turkey dinner on Monday. In the middle of carving the turkey, Scott found the wishbone and Samantha got to break it with him. Scott ended up with the bigger end, and the kids all wanted to know what his wish was. I told them that it's generally believed that if you tell a wish it won't come true. Jesse thought about this for a minute, then said, "Dad, I don't want your wish to come true... I wanna hear it!"


  1. Your children are so adorable. Samantha looks exactly the same as I remember her - just a little bigger. Did you know that by the time you're pregnant with your 5th baby, domestic duties are no longer your responsibility? No one actually takes over but it's okay to take a "free pass" from stuffing plastic easter eggs and bring delicious meals to pot-luck!

  2. Sounds like you had a fun weekend! Your kids are so cute and all getting so big! I can't believe how many things you manage to do in one day with 4 kids around. You must be super-mom!


I love hearing from you! :)
