Today we took advantage of the cold rainy weather and stayed in doors for the most part. First we colored Easter egg's which is getting to be more fun as the girls get older.
I love this photo of the girls because this is the conversation they were having;
Ryanne: "Morgan, I have a great idea on how we can decorate the eggs this year."
Morgan: "Ryanne, Ryanne, I have been doing this for years so I totally know what I am doing here."
Gotta' love the first born! ;)
Here is the finished product. I painted the plate at a ceramics place when Morgan was a baby. So far it's held up pretty well. Oh and a few of the eggs are missing cause the girls decided this year they like hard boiled eggs. ;)

On to my next project of the day. I made these little Easter basket cupcakes for the girls to hand out to the neighborhood kids. The idea is courtesy of She has some really fun ideas if you ever get a chance to check her web page out. She takes the cake balls to whole new level.

After I was done with the baking and decorating I wrapped them in these bags with cute spring ribbon. I cut out little cardboard circles and placed them under the cupcakes to give them stability. A few did get smooshed a little in transit but by the looks on the kids face when they received them I don't think they minded.
I then drove the kids around to deliver them and snapped pictures from my dry, warm car. :)
What? I don't like being cold and wet. He,hee!

We wish everyone a blessed Easter tomorrow. I can't wait to take pictures of our day and post next week. The girls have asked to go to our church's sunrise service so we will see if I post a picture of myself at 5:30am, doubtful. ;)
