preparing for Easter
So, these are some of the pictures of easter preparation. this is the first year we actually dyed eggs. I think 5 yo is still a little bit too young for the insanity of egg dying...so only lilianna got to do it this year - in 3 years Zeb and Ben can do it. It was very nervewracking watching keith balance the eggs above the dye cups. It may have shaved several years off of my life!
The bunny hutch is a favorite. We did the Gingerbread house for Christmas and it is amazing how entertaining putting jawbreakers into frosting can be. You may or may not be able to tell which cupcakes I frosted and Lilianna frosted. Walmart has taken out their fabric section and put in a big new cake decorating section and I am soooo excited about it. They are carrying the crazy 3D princess castle cake set. While we were making the cupcakes - Lilianna decided she wanted to be a chef when she grew up. She said we could be chefs together and have a hotdog, lemonade and sweets stand. She wants to sell all of the sweets...you know cakes, cookies, cupcakes, brownies. She wants to bake a cake and put it right by the door that says "Hello Customers" in Green frosting.
Late last night we put everyone to bed...the boys fought it hard with crying that went on for a while and Lilianna went to bed really well. I told her as I tucked her in that she couldn't get out of bed because the Easter Bunny might not come if she got out of bed. She said...ok mommy I won't get out of bed no matter what. About 20 minutes later, I thought i should go tell her it was OK to go to the bathroom if she needed to. i had visions of her peeing in her pants because she didn't want to leave her bedroom. When I walked in to tell her it would be OK to go to the bathroom she was already asleep....yeah....who else is reading this with a sense of foreboding!
