Happy Easter!

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone has a very blessed day!

We have nothing big planned, the kids of course were visited by the Easter Bunny (I will share photos later), and all the parents (Brian's and mine) and my brother are coming over for dinner tonight... whatever you do on this most wonderful holiday, I hope you have a very good one!

I wanted to share some photos of Miss Brookie decorating her Easter eggs last weekend!

 Boiling the eggs  ---- Helen asked me on Facebook why they were white... I told her that we do have brown eggs here in the US, but the majority of them are sold white. Just in case anyone else was wondering ....


 Dying the eggs!


Decorating the eggs!


And all her eggs are decorated!!! 



Also last weekend, Brookie was invited to TWO birthday parties on Saturday... and I just wanted to share some photos of her at the two parties!!

The first birthday party was at a park....





 

On the teter-totter (see-saw) with Daddy!







The second birthday party was at her friends house and they did arts and crafts!


 They decorated crowns!!



Welllll then we did face painting... but with Brookie's Port Wine Stains... she can't have her face painted... so she asked me to paint a mermaid on her arm... wow... EPIC FAIL Mom!! LOL!! I think I need painting lessons!! LOL!!

My mermaid looks like Heath Ledger as "The Joker" ... lol ;)

And they painted sun catchers!!

All in all it was a busy but FUN day!!!!


And yesterday was another birthday party for Brookie's friend Aerin!!


Brookie played with balloons!

And she danced!

And here is her BFF Aerin...the birthday girl!


Also today.... Deana and I are sharing some Easter cards and an Easter layout we made on Nikki Sivils blog!!


And here are some Easter cards from me! I used the Noah collection!

I used my Cricut to make the eggs!



And I also made a layout using the Audrey collection with photos of  Brookie decorating Easter eggs last weekend! (YES!! I did scrap the above photos all ready! LOL!)

I had some eggs left over from my cards, and added them to my layout! 





Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  7. Ohhh Brookie has been a busy girl lately! :)
    It's so cosy that she had died eggs and totally great that you already have created a layout with the egg/Brookie-photos. :)
    It's so great that it's Spring!! We also enjoy our little holiday. The weather is sun/blue sky and then it all changes and we get a bit of snow. ... typical April weather!
    I wish you and your family a VERY HAPPY EASTER!! :) :)

  18. +Hi Julie, The pictures are ALL so sweet! I'm making dinner also today, for the family, and we won't even be able to color eggs, nor make our bunny cake until tonight or tomorrow sometime... But that's o.k., because it's just all the more time and fun to celebrate, and I hope to get lots of picture taking done too, if I can!.. Enjoy your dinner, and Happy Easter to you and yours! ~tina

  37. Cool eggs! Well done Brookie & mommy!! Great cards and layout too - love the perfect egg shapes :)Just wondering...do you blow the insides out of the eggs so you can keep them forever or just decorate & keep for a bit then chuck them out? Would be a fun thing to do with my little one...
