We had a great time on the Easter party circuit this year attending not one, not two, but three brunches with egg hunts and hosting our Seder, of course.
Egg Hunt, The First:
Egg Hunt, The Second:
This party featured live rabbits and more games than you can toss an egg at.
Egg Hunt, The Third??? What? I didn’t get any pictures? Eeek! Maybe Kent took some, I’ll see. I was too busy eating. This third one was a culinary throwdown of epic proportions. Let me at least show you what that morning looked like before we took our mango mint couscous salad to the unpictured party.
The Easter Bunny did give these children some of those big eggs and chocolate animals from Costco, but he also gave them books, stuffed animals, balloons, DVD’s for the car, and soccer stuff in an effort to be a little less sugar-centric. I’m so pleased, so pleased that my little nerdtourage flipped out over the books and jumped into reading immediately. Fluffy said, “Do you think the Easter Bunny can see the future? Because he knew I love reading and he knew I would love the Whatever After books! It’s like he really knows me.” Yes, child. It’s like he’s known you all his life.
And what of the lamb cake you ask? Can there be an Easter without a creepy lamb cake? Well of course not. This year instead of making something cute to look at, I made a decadent chocolate pound cake. It was a yummy black sheep. That is all there is to say about that because it got eaten before it made it to any of the three egg hunts.
I have been crazy productive lately having recently finished Willpower, and Kent’s been helping his mom move, so I’ve gotten backed up blogging. I’ve got a refinished dresser to show you plus our first trip to the spectacular Bluebell walk at Bull Run and some amazing trim work (and so much more) from The Jenny McArthur. Get excited.
