I’ve been slowly thinking about Easter. One of the things I’ve been wanting to get better at for the past several years is decorating better for holidays (especially for the kids). I have such a hard time doing that because I’m such a procrastinator and before I know it whatever holiday that was coming up is past and I never did anything special for it. Lousy, Lazy Lady, I know!
So here is what happened…..
So these are pretty boring….Easter eggs are colorful! so…
We painted up some eggs and let them sit for a while….to dry ( :
and I accomplished some Easter decorating! twirly dance!
