the bunny is gearing up

By Tara Zandra | April 11, 2009


We went out to an Easter egg hunt held at the gymnastics studio for little kids. Even though Daisy isn’t in the little gym anymore, the hunt was designed for enrolled students up to age 5 so I figure she was allowed. There were plenty of eggs and Daisy had a grand time filling her little basket. Thankfully, you empty the candy into your basket and leave the eggs themselves there. Then she had her picture taken with the Easter Bunny and got a little prize in the form of a stuffed duck. She was quite pleased with the whole experience and I’m really glad we went.

Tabitha wanted to go to open gym so we headed over there after the egg hunt. She was motivated to work on skills for the next level and got a good workout in before we decided to go home.

After lunch and a grocery store run, we all worked together to clean up the house a bit. Tabitha is like Chris in that she prefers actual cleaning as opposed to putting things away. I much prefer to put things away so Chris cleaned the kitchen, Tabitha cleaned the bathroom and I put everything away in the dining room and living room plus directed Daisy in a bit of straightening as well. We also worked on some food with Tabitha in charge of the dips and Daisy helping me make blueberry muffins for tomorrow. Tabitha then settled in to watch the Shirley Temple version of Heidi as she just finished reading the book yesterday. As always, she likes the book better but she did enjoy the movie.

We had a tasty dinner of tacos, spanish rice and refried beans then the girls and Chris got down to egg dyeing business. They dyed 23 eggs as we lost one in the boiling process. They did a standard PAAS kit and are quite pleased with the results. We put wrappers on a few of the eggs and of course stickers. Tomorrow they will meet their colorful fate as deviled eggs.

I’m working on food prep for tomorrow and we need to get Tabi into bed. We’ll wait a sufficient amount of time and then summon the Easter Bunny to do his thing. Should be a fun morning!

    Aww, they look so cute with their eggs! That’s one thing we’ve never done — I’m the only one who likes hard-boiled eggs (Peter couldn’t stand them and Gillian won’t even try them) and I don’t want to eat a dozen of them by myself. LOL
