Easter Egg Trees Past
The following year, we brought out the same "tree," but we were too lazy to blow too many eggs. We did a few, then decorated the tree with ribbon and a few origami cranes we made at an origami-themed storytime. (And yes, these pictures are awful. I took them for myself. I didn't have a blog in 2011!)
Last year, we didn't do much crafting or decorating for Easter. I made a wreath, which we are using again this year. We went to Washington, D.C. last year, to visit the girls' uncles. It was a pretty grand way to spend Easter! I never even dyed eggs. The uncles dyed eggs with the girls on Easter Eve, while Mr. B and I went to the Kennedy Center to see the New York City Ballet. (Poor me... hee hee hee.)
Today, I'm letting a dozen medium-sized eggs warm to room temperature. As soon as Big Sis gets home from school, we have eggs to blow! We have a new "tree" - long branches we gathered yesterday on our walk outside the school. I've sprayed the branches with glitter spray, planted them in a new vase filled with Easter grass, and all we have to do is blow and dye some eggs.
