It started out simply enough- let’s color some eggs! But oh, how Paaz has sunk over the years. It seems when I was a kid you got six tablets of insipid color, and now you are reduced to only three, and what was once insipid is now barely colored water. I mean come on, that’s PINK?? Back to Pysanky next year, but that’s a tangent- anyone want to learn how to do Ukranian eggs? Maybe I’ll do a turorial. They’re fun!
After we colored eggs, we had to run to Ace Hardware, and made a pitstop in picking up a new toilet seat to stick the plungers to the smooth floor and laugh upROARiously at the loud POP they would make when you peeled them up. Because honestly, what’s funnier than a toilet plunger? And they can’t play with the one at home. We laughed till our bellies hurt.
Then we topped off the night with The Ten Commandments, which Bean lasted about an hour before he crashed, and Jeffrey lasted until the 40 years in the desert. Not many people lasted through the desert, so he’s in good company. My children will now forever think Yul Brenner is what the Egyptians looked like. Gotta love old Hollywood.
The Easter Bunny forgot to come last night, so exhausted was she by Moses and wandering in the desert- thankfully Abby woke up needing to pee (hallelujah!) about 1 a.m. and the Easter Bunny stumbled to the garage to find the baskets and throw some eggs around the living room before she crashed again. The bar is low, my friends.
The Easter Bunny brought everyone swim-goggles for our swim lessons that start next week! Hooray! Abby is especially rockin’ the look, matching with her chocolate bunny face and wearing Bean’s jammies. You wish you were so cool.
They’re all in the tub right now, between Conference Sessions, and we’re expecting Mo’s family later for dinner. We’re having cold cereal and candy for dinner. Why ruin the day now? Have a blessed Easter.
