Easter Eve Happenings
On Saturday morning, Carter's cub scout pack held their annual Pinewood Derby. Carter's car was Da Bunny. (When you say it, you have to sing The Bunny like from Veggie Tales ... "The bunny, the bunny, oh I ate the bunny ...") His car didn't win very many races, but he won Most Artistic. And it was cute.
We came home and started to dye our eggs. So many cracked before and after boiling them and during the egg dying process when little hands dropped some and they rolled right off the table and across the kitchen floor. It was slightly disappointing.
And then I got right to work on candy making. Buckeyes and
Coconut Indulgences. Nothing says Easter to me like the combinations of peanut butter and milk chocolate and coconut and dark chocolate ... and blue Robin's Egg candies rubbed on my lips like lipstick ... Ahhh. The childhood memories.
