Easter Tradition – Getting a Tattoo

7 Apr

Okay I confess…that’s not an Easter tradition and this will likely be the only year I get “Easter ink” done.

Talking through it - distraction technique

But since you’re here and you’re reading, look what I did!

Double checking placement pre-ink

I can not have any more children because there are no wrists left to commemorate them on. I’m okay with that. I’m more than okay with that.

Being told what to do if I need to pass out

As it turns out, I have met my threshold of carving-designs-into-my-skin-for-self-expression pain.

Pretending to be really tough

Not as tough as I picture myself to be.

Bracing myself - it's ouchy

Now I have a tattoo on each wrist.

Left wrist - Hunter

As I like to say, the placement is symbolic of the shackles of motherhood imprisonment.

Right wrist - Kingston

But in a good way.

Days Leading up to the Chocolate Bunny Hunt

6 Apr

A friend staying in our Guest House Caboose noticed my overcrowded pastel display and said, “Oh I didn’t realize you guys celebrated Easter.” I could have taken “you guys” = heathens or “you guys” = your family so I chose the latter. Our mini-men will not be deprived an Eastery youth, like I often felt until Mom started leaving Cadbury Creme Eggs on my nightstand.

Today’s nod to Easter was the coloring of eggs, toddler style (adorning eggs with stickers then dropping them into a colorful solution before nap-time):

Happy Snaps – Easter Edition

4 Apr

In honor of the upcoming chocolate gorge sesh, I am posting a few snapshots of our Easter festivities.

Me & the boys made mini cakes for their school Easter celly tomorrow. Strawberry cake with lemon frosting and Easter nonpareils. Nomz:

Our neighborhood Eggstravaganza – the kids are squealing with delight here which was a far cry from their miserable whining just moments before. I love photos! Hopefully they can help me forget how ridic our morning was prior to this happy snapshot:

And a very retouched family shot in an attempt to erase all signs of allergic suffering from our faces (we look like we’re made of wax & I’m normally not that bronze…it’s a photo effect I went nuts with to cover the redness in my face from pollen adversity):
