Know What I Mean, Jellybean?

Princess Brynlee Erin, 18 weeks young
There's just something about a {sleeping} baby.  
Those precious eye lashes.  Smooth "oh-so" kissable cheeks.
And these lips....she definitely didn't get them from me!
Exquisite.

A quick view of recent thing-a-ma-giggers that have occupied my {laugh, laugh, laugh} free time.  {laugh..laugh..snort....laugh}  Who has free time?  Know what I mean...jelly bean?  Oh, jelly beans.  That sounds yummy.  Someone eat some for me.

We colored Easter Eggs.  And I mean literally colored them!

 I boiled a dozen eggs, then right away, I carefully gave them to the princesses.
 The crayons instantly melted on the hot eggs, and made beautiful vivid designs.
 It seems like none of our projects are complete without a lil' bling.  So, we whipped out the ol' glitter glue pens.

 After the first egg rolled off the table, I figured out that the paper towels weren't the right holder.  Go figure.  I gave each girl a plastic lid (off of a frosting container) and that was just perfect.  Very fun.

We also made a bunny costume for Grandma Kokowawa (little Kokowawa's Grandma, a Christmas present from Grandma Paula).  A little felt, hot glue, yarn, and 2 pipe cleaners.  We used the yarn to tie them on like masks.
 I made a couple pacifier holders for the lil' Princess.  My mom gave us some mitten clips when we were in the States a few months ago.  They were great then, but we don't need mittens here.  So I cut the clips off of the stretchy elastic, then hot glued a ribbon around them.
 On the other end I hot glued one of those cheap fabric hair ties.

 String it through the binki handle or like in our case...the hole.  Wa-laa.

The "color the eggs with crayons" and the "animal mask" were ideas off of the Family Fun website.
