easter part 2, and the sugar nazi takes a vacation

April 14, 2009 |  Category:   craft holidays life









So our pysanky (Ukrainian eggs decorating) didn’t really work out so well, mostly because the candle wax we used didn’t stick to the egg and kept coming off. If you do this, get the proper wax, not any old candle that’s laying around – in our case, a rose scented Yankee candle that we found at my mom’s house. Mark and his sister, Lara, who are part Russian, have childhood memories of these eggs around Easter. After the egg dyeing activities we went on an Easter egg hunt out in the yard, which compelled Mia to put on her bike helmet for the hunt. Maybe she had some premonition that she would get sick later that day. She’s totally convinced herself that her fever and illness is from eating too much easter candy and chocolate and vowed only to have 1 piece at any given time. She hasn’t been eating much food since Sunday and even refused apple pie last night. She’s taking this no sugar policy seriously and I think she’s scared herself from candy now! Claudine, on the other hand, has always loved chocolate (Mia’s not such a fan of chocolate strangely enough) and could have eaten piece after piece as she kept cramming chocolate eggs down until we had to decide that the sugar nazi needed to come back from vacation and take the chocolate away.

    Looks like a wonderful day. I remember trying the pysanky eggs eggs a few times as a kiddo too. They’re a lot of work, but beautiful and fun. I hope Mia’s feeling better soon. What self-control!

    I think I need a sugar nazi standing watch over here at my house all the time.

    I love the color of the eggs, and the bike helmet. 🙂

    I love the bike helmet. Looks very business-like because Egg Hunting is serious business. lol

    I saw the Lemongrass marshmallows by the way ^_~

    So cute! I love your girls outfits, where do you shop for them?

    Oooh those look like Lindt bunnies!

    I could occasionally do with a sugar nazi, too. Or more precisely a cake nazi. A portugese tart nazi would also be handy.

    Bridgett, the girls’ clothes is a mix of hand me downs and sale items from sample sales and online: jcrew, tea collection, imoga, gap, etc. and some from my friends’ line: golden, ismodern, etc. I usually buy end of season clearance sale and save the clothes. You get a lot of wear when you have 2 girls.
