Getting Ready for Easter

Let’s just say that when it rains at our house, it pours.  Actually and figuratively speaking.  It all started with that shoe on the wall.  Oh wait, nope, wrong story.  Dr. Seuss wrote that one.  It all started with the girl getting pink eye and a cold, which trickled down to each one of us one by one.  Now, I’ve never experienced death, but I think it may have been touch and go for a bit.  I had to call the hubby to come home for part of the day because I was so bad off.  I can deal with a lot, so you know it’s bad if I had to call for reinforcement.  On top of all the sickness, we were getting company for a week, so needless to say, it was a disaster around here.  Hot dogs and frozen pizza for all!

It rarely rains in the desert.  But when it does, the kids beg to jump in the puddles. There are seriously like two puddles to jump in when it’s done raining.  Now two puddles and three kids just begs for a fight.  Hence the reason this fella looks less than thrilled.

He just had to taste the rain water.  Sure, why not kid.  I probably would’ve rushed the first one to the doctor to make sure she didn’t ingest any sort of germs, but with the third kid, we’ll call it a sip of water.  Heck, maybe he even ate some dirt.  We could call that lunch.

Since we were less than productive for about a month, I figure it was about time to get the kids excited for Easter.  Growing up, one of my grandmas would always let us help her decorate an Easter tree.  This is probably the cheapest/easiest craft you could do.  It cost me a whopping $4.

Step 1:  Cut branches from your tree in the backyard.

Step 2:  Spray paint said branches white and let dry overnight.

Step 3:  Place the branches in some sort of vase/bucket that is tall enough and sturdy enough.

Step 4:  Have the kids decorate the tree with the Dollar Tree eggs and let the fighting begin because someone got to hang the green and yellow egg and they didn’t.

And there you have it…an Easter Tree.  Clever, huh?
