kickin' off easter

well, the easter festivities started around here yesterday with william's party at school. he made some bunny ears which haven't come off of his head except for shower time and sleep time. and one scary moment when wes ripped them off and threatened to destroy them. but mama helped us avert WWIII. thank you, very much.

waiting on our egg hunt instructions at school...


out in the field...


snack time. yes, still donning the ears...


and today, i decided to get all martha stewartish and dye eggs with the little people. alone. without daddy. pregnancy must be making me crazy.

william liked the egg-dipper thingy (i am all about some fancy terminology). and then he decided to lick it after he dipped it. he realized quite quickly that he didn't like straight vinegar so much.

you'd think he looks patient in this picture. until you saw the red dye that was everywhere shortly after this.


showing off the finished product...

so, all in all, it went fairly smoothly. except for the red and green hands on the little one. the purple teeth on the older one. and the broken slat on the blinds in my kitchen. i'm not quite sure how that last thing fits into the process of dyeing eggs, but you can't rule anything out around here. oh...the joy.

i get so tickled when i read about your life with the boys because your ocd nature has to take a beating everytime. but like the good mom you are, it all rolls off your back and all your love comes shining through. what blessed little boys. ily, mama

with chase roasting marshmellows and you dying eggs, those two little people are not missing much. and as a former preschool teacher, those ears are precious. honey
