Easter Preparation

Well, with the technical difficulties we have had with Picasa and the craziness of Easter, I have a lot of catching up to do! Thank you for your patience and hopefully Picasa will work and let me get a bunch of posts done. After Papa's party weekend, it was time to start preparing for Easter. We had Caroline, Aunt Domi, and Aunt Theresa over to do some paper mache Easter egg crafts. We made the eggs by putting paper mache over a balloon. Once it dried, we were able to pop the balloon and have a hard egg that we then got to decorate. Here is everyone working on painting their eggs.

Abbey is my crafty child - she loves all crafts and is usually much better at it than I would expect for a 2.5 year old. As you can see, she is taking the painting of her egg very seriously.

Juliette is able to decorate her egg with help from Aunt Domi.

Here are the finished eggs - Juliette's is the purple one, Ben's is the green one (note - he decorated it to look like a rocket ship - the red spot is the fire engine making it go) and the pink one is Abbey's.

On Good Friday, we headed over to Aunt Theresa's house to make some Easter themed sugar cookies. Here are the kids getting ready to use the mixer to make the cookie.

Then it was time to roll out the dough and use the cookie cutters - we had ducks, bunnies, tulips and butterflies.

There was also some fun in the car while the cookies were baking.

Then it was time to ice and decorate the cookies. Again, you can see the seriousness of the task for Abbey.

Juliette preferred to eat the cookies rather than decorate them!
