|Dyeing eggs the old fashioned way - Paas tablets from the grocery store.|
|Which apparently make pretty decent watercolors|
|Which, as it turns out, are a good way to distract your family while you set up the Resurrection Rolls (which failed rather spectacularly).|
|So instead of yummy rolls, you get instant Easter decorations.|
|That don't look too shabby.|
Now for something completely different - a little linking up with Kendra-
1. What did you and your family wear to Mass on Easter Sunday?
Here's H. and I. Daddy didn't have the day off.
|That's no camera trick. I really am that short and my 3 year old is that tall.|
We were *that* family who sat in the front row only to have a child have an epic meltdown right before the consecration. It was, well, epic.
2. Easter Bunny: thumbs up or thumbs down?
We do Santa and the Easter Bunny. Plain and simple. I don't think I'm "lying" to my kids anymore by playing along with these fantasy creatures than I do on a semi-regular basis about if there are any cookies in the house. I think make believe is good for the mind, and we make sure that these gift-givers are closely tied into the real reason we celebrate the holidays.
In our house these are the kind of things the Easter bunny brings - religious books, wooden farm animals, outside toys and some candy.
|The Easter Bunny brings fun things and hides eggs in our house and is never seen. He does not lurk around in malls. No creepy mall Bunny here.|
3. Do you prefer to celebrate holidays at your own house or at someone else's house?
If we had a big enough house to comfortably host everyone I like having people over, but we don't so they're usually at someone else's house.
4. What is your favorite kind of candy?
Like Kendra, Reese Peanut Butter Cups
5. Do you like video games?
I get bored with them easily. I don't really see the draw to spending long amounts of time on something that doesn't really have anything to show for it.
6. Do you speak another language?
I know a little Spanish, but nothing close to fluency.
