Hippity Hoppity Hippity Hoppity, Easter's on it's way. Oh Shoot, it's here and I've done nothing!

It's Easter tomorrow and I've done nothing.  The little bees claim to believe in the Easter bunny and I am failing them.  I have the stuff but just haven't gotten around to assembling baskets and eggs and blah, blah, blah.  I did make an AWESOME casserole for brunch the Gramma and Grampa Bee.  Soooooo, that's somethin'!

The dying went well.  I had enough glasses to hold all of the dyes.  Don't drink that, it's not for drinking. And yes, we went with the brown eggs.

Ladycakes is totally old enough to take charge of these projects.  I get them set up but she takes it from there.  It allows me to photograph and sit back as the quiet observer.  It's quite fun that way.  They figured out the math on how many eggs each had to dye.  They took it slow and waited until the egg was done to "perfection."  It was nice not hearing my voice telling them what to do and how to do it.  I'm notorious for that.

And look what they come up with.  Lovely.  All on their own, photographed by moi'.  No barking, no "you should do it this way."  None of that.  And btw, brown eggs do dye "richly."  I'll do it again.  Guess what' s on the menu this week?

Egg Salad.

Happy Easter, friends.


  1. YAY!! HAPPY EASTER!! i'm sure you pulled it together and hopefully you have some sun to glint off the snow! ? or warm slush? :)

  2. doh! I bought white eggs for dying but never again, I love the color that comes from brown eggs, those are really great. My husband and son have already relayed their lack of interest in egg salad, so, that's what I'll be eating too.

  3. mmmmm.... egg salad!
    I tried to convince O that I was the Easter Bunny and he laughed in my face saying "that is not possible mom, you could never get enough sleep after going to everybody's house.... " hmmm.... he's got me there!

  4. I love how the brown eggs came out! Very organic! I dig it! :)
