It’s so far past Easter at this point, I could kick myself because I don’t remember half the things I was going to say. I’m actually working on a bunch of posts like this and it’s driving me crazy. Oh well, maybe some day I’ll learn how to post in a timely-er manner.
Lily mentioned making a bunny hat once so I figured this was the perfect time to do that. I drew the lines for the ears and she cut them out perfectly, I was so damn impressed. After she cut them out she colored the inside of the ears and then glued cotton balls to it. After the glue dried I realized that the ears were way to heavy to stand up on on Lil’s head so I cut strips of poster board and glued them to the back. Then we glued the ears to the headband.
Lil loved these ears. She wore them around for days.
For the last few years I’ve been having Lil paint wooden eggs so that I can keep them. I think the pack I bought has a dozen eggs in it, that’s way more than I meant to do each year. Oh well.
I know that traditionally Easter eggs are dyed with that crazy little dye pellets, but I hated it the time that we tried it. Lil thought it was incredibly boring and not fun. So we always paint our eggs.
This year I decided to try and figure out how to keep the eggs from rolling around and messing up Lil’s paint. I cut up a couple of empty paper towel tubes. This is the best thing ever, you’re welcome.
Waldo mentioned that it would be good if we had something that would spin the eggs so Lil didn’t have to keep touching them. I run up the stairs and grabbed a lazy susan from my craft stash and spin art eggs were born.
Waldo, Lily and I painted 2 dozen eggs, a few of them didn’t survive the whole process. I also bought about 3 dozen plastic eggs. I didn’t hide all the plastic eggs, but I’m pretty sure I hid at least 4 dozen eggs.
This wasn’t the dress I bought for Lil to wear for Easter, but it was what she wanted to wear so whatever.

This was Waldo’s egg. I was very impressed.
I think I emptied her bucked at least twice because all the eggs wouldn’t fit.
A few months before Easter Lil and I were talking about hunting eggs and she mentioned how some of the eggs would have TREASURE in them. After talking to her for a while and trying to figure out what on earth she was talking about and where she learned about treasure eggs I got a little info, I never found out where she heard about them. But treasure eggs apparently have beads and things like that in them. I never had any intention of giving Lil easter gifts, but she was so set on this treasure egg thing that I couldn’t let her down.
We went to Target and I grabbed a huge amount of little inexpensive treasures. Bead necklaces, tiny animals (squinkies or something like that), a ring that lights up and blinks and a few other little things.
I hope you enjoyed my very late Easter post. I’m sure I missed some really important things I wanted to say, but this at least got my pictures and a few thoughts in order.
