"Where is the Easter Bunny, damn it??"

Nothing like Easter and Spring Break together to inspire some Martha Stewart craftiness.
Yeah. I have come to the conclusion Martha has stock in Valium. And is not afraid to use it.

We picked Tye- Dyed eggs this year because they were different and looked to be loads of fun. They came out really cool, I will admit. To be loads of fun, you would have to require that to involve a dirty wet rag, and egg dye every.where.

We did some other crafts, but they too were destined for disaster. Finally we just gave up and watched movies. We all decided that not only is "50 First Dates" one of the best movies ever, but that it was time better spent.

I saw these deviled eggs on someones facebook wall and thought they were so cute. I wondered why no one had thought of this idea sooner. No one had because it was damn near impossible to make them! It took a full dozen eggs to get these four little chicks! At dinner no one even wanted to eat them! "Too cute to eat!" Seriously? I got great pleasure making them into egg salad ;)

My first attempt at a cherry pie.
Forgot it in the oven and burned the hell out of it.
It sure was pretty.

My cake boss in the making. She has more patience with this stuff than I do. She also learned that after you make it, you seldom want to eat it! I just threw the last of the cake away.
It *could have had something to do with the fact that the eggs were robin's Eggs Whoppers. Those candies are the devil's own.
Even with all the craziness, we had a great Spring Break and a great Easter. All four kids at home, baskets of goodies, Dyed eggs with inappropriate words, and wearing nothing but pj's for a week straight.
What more could you ask for?
