So I told you a while back that I had gotten totally addicted to this stamping thing and had decided to label my baskets on the front shelf. I bought this shelf with the total intention of making it easier for me to put all the kids stuff away during the day and saving me from walking back and forth..it worked!!! Yay for me and for them for listening!! However, there was still argument over whose basket belonged to whom. So I fixed it with labels and they turned out really cute...
Ok now onto our Spring craft....the girls were dying to do something especially since I kind of flaked on a valentines craft...Bad mommy!! So I stole an idea from an advertisement at the commisary and off we went..
Another little thing I did for Easter was make some cupcakes. Now I am not a huge cupcake maker just because in my perfectionist ways if they tops do not come out perfect I will scrap them and start all over..costly yes but I have not convinced my head yet that not so perfect cupcakes are ok to serve to people..one day maybe..yeah prob not!! Haha Sooo any who I made a dozen golden cake and a dozen strawberry cupcakes and the tops came out Perfect....look out Sprinkles..muahuahuahuah!! So I iced them up..I suck at that but that it why I always do a decoration on top to hide that fact...genious I know! And here they are...
Did I tell you they turned out FABULOUS?!!! Huh did I?? Toot toot!!!
Ok so then onto DD2 coloring her own eggs...I told her she could only do 6 well because noone else will eat them besides me so why waste perfectly good eggs especially when we go through like 5 dozen every 2 weeks..yes we us some eggs!! So here are her beautifully dyed eggs that were ohhh so good as deviled eggs as well..mmmmmm
Ok so all the fun stuff done at home..my back was killing me from cooking and baking and decorating all the day before but we went to the egg hunt. No one can miss an egg hunt for your child..trust me it's like a right of passage to be able to mall..yes she did..and push..oh yeah she did that too....other kids to get to all the good eggs in hopes of having that one special egg in your basket that will win you that big
She made a killing on eggs and managed to push a poor 1 yr old down in the process and elbow a few other kids but no prize egg..alas she seemed to be proud of herself and had tons of candy to show for it..ohhhh mannn I really need to come up with something else to put in eggs instead of friggin candy..Ughhhhh...
By Saturday night I was so ready to retire the Easter bunny and tell the kids that there was no more Easter baskets anymore...I would never do that..don't bash me...ok I might have done it but Mr. M wouldn't let me!! He is such a pushover!!! So we loaded baskets from the candy delivering bunny and off to bed we went..exhausted..sugar rushed and babbling something about never again knowing fully well we would be doing this all over again next year..why do we do this to ourselves?!!!
Ok so that is pretty much my weekend and a few other things added in. I will hopefully still have internet so no more gaps in blogging!! Thanks to all my new followers..welcome and I hope you stay for the
Oh and of course 5 days until Spring break...Paris here we come!!! Yiipeeeeeeeee!!!
