Happy St. Easter Day!

This early Easter has been so confusing to me. The kids have a ton of parties at school for St. Paddy's and Easter (they are not complaining!!) I takes me so long to lug out, set up, and take down decorations that I decided to only decorate for Easter because I have more Easter themed things. Not to snub St. Paddy.... check out my bunny on my front door!

Isn't this bunny this cutest? My grandfather made if for me out of wood a few years ago. His tail is a white toilet bowl brush. I love it!!

Kay had her St. Patrick's party at school today and I did a take on Ang's Irish flag suggestion with fruit instead of vegetables. I think it came out pretty cute! I had to put fruit fresh on the cut green apples (I didn't even know they still made that, but they do!) I also made a tasty fruit dip which isn't healthy at all but I couldn't resist the urge to green food color something. This dip is so good and easy..... take a container of sour cream (I used reduced fat) 1 package of instant vanilla pudding, some pineapple juice and whip with the hand blender.
ETA: Kay's home and said the platter was a huge hit and everyone loved the tasty dip! I'm telling you that is a keeper ;)

In keeping with our double celebrations all week, we had corn beef sloppy joes (Mr KB is out tonight so we celebrated yesterday) and dyed easter eggs after dinner.

Nothing says the Lord has risen like a dyed hard boiled egg wearing a C3PO mask (we had a Star Wars dye kit!!) This just makes me laugh every time I look at it!

Happy Monday! xo, Brie
