Eggs, Kids and Grass!

Eggs, kids and grass. That pretty much sums up an Easter Egg Hunt. Only this Easter Egg Hunt had to be held indoors because of the nasty Pacific Northwest weather. Still, it was fun!!
Yes, even though our kids are in their mid-twenties, we still hold Egg Hunts. And why not? We're all just big kids at heart!!

Plastic eggs....sooo the way to go. I'm saving the Easter Egg Dye for dyeing ribbon instead!!
Oh, and remember this? Growing grass in a roasting pan. Dirt, wheat grass seed, more dirt, more seed and more dirt. Sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle with water.
Viola!! Beautiful Easter centerpiece on the cheap. The leftover grass went into smaller baskets like shown in the first picture up there. That's right, scroll back up. Heehee. I hope you and your family had a Happy Easter!
This week I'm finishing up the re-organization of my studio. My mom is also coming to visit for a few days, and, we have a weekend birthday get together for the Little Mama, Brittany. April is always a busy month for us as Bill and I also celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary this past weekend. 28 years!! Hot diggity dog and a big WHOHOO!!
The happiest of Pink Wednesday's to you!! Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
P.S To Karen Cook: Miller Paint color #8735D. Brown is a tricky pick. This one looks silvery brown in my guestroom and a little more golden in Monticello. Part of that has to do with the sheen (Monti's is semi-gloss, my guestroom is flat) and the amount of, and direction of the incoming light. I suggest lots of paint chips and then actually painting your top picks directly on the wall before picking a winner. Cheers!

Now I really feel guilty that we've already given up the egg hunting. :(
Probably because we always did ours with clues...that rhymed no less. It's hard to come up with clever new rhymes for 15+ years.
Oh well, maybe we'll start it up again next year.

LOVE the grass!!!
