Saturday -Only 15 days til Easter, I heard over and over by one very excited little cherub. The count down has begun. Last year we were in Oaxaca Mexico and we enjoyed celebrating Semana Santa/Holy Week it in a very different way than Canada does, but I like to keep both the Mexican and Canadian traditions alive and strong. So we brought out all the bunnies and some eggs and baskets and said..."Let the decorating begin!"
Special Thanks to Duckett for the music.

Just a note about the plastic eggs, I know it's not green, but right now I have this wicked cold and a really bad earache that I got because we ended up waiting along time for the bus the other day, out in the cold and wind, when we went to visit a dear dear relative in the hospital.
This earache is sort of making me CraZy, but hopefully it will be gone soon. Has to do with my sinuses.
Needless to say I can not blow any eggs right now, and I wanted to share this experience with my girl. We never seem to eat the eggs we make and you can't paint them.
These little keepsakes I can keep for years and treasure. So that's why plastic eggs, guess I could have got paper ones, but these caught my eye and were just S2.49. So there you go. Next time I will try harder and we will make the eggs from paper mache. I actually tried that once, they didn't turn out so good. There's an art to it. :)
