Happy Easter

I tried. Oh my, how I tried. Maybe I need to come to the conclusion that I need the intervention of a professional photographer to get both of my girls looking at the camera and smiling at the same time. Here are my attempts at an Easter picture of Willow and Piper in their matching outfits:

Easter Egg Preparation

Willow and I dyed Easter Eggs at the kitchen table after dinner, using the Pas Pearlescent kit:


Piper was in her high chair watching us, and pitching an absolute fit because she wanted to do it, too. Unfortunately, the kit said ages 3 and above, and besides that, I was worried about her getting the dye everywhere *except* on the egg.

Then I had a flash of inspiration:


Can you see it? Once I reviewed the pic on my camera, I realized you couldn't really make out what she was doing, so I decided to take a video:

The video ended quickly because I was afraid for the poor egg - it was getting smashed about so much! I took it out of the bag and it was fine. I opened another bag, added an egg and some more dye, but that one didn't fare so well when Piper decided she was done with the dyeing and threw the egg off the high chair tray.


No matter - now we know that Piper likes hardboiled eggs!
