Forget The Easter Bonnet

Easter with boys is most definitely different than it is with girls, as Peggy pointed out in the comments of my previous post.

Take for instance my Easter Hydrangeas. I ran the school band hydrangea fundraiser. They have come to bloom beautifully and I have them on the back porch where they get some sun and fresh air.

It truly had the potential for a very pretty Easter picture... until the boys took over the back porch.

Nothing quite says He Has Risen as Easter type flowers surrounded by airsoft guns... assorted kinds.

The coloring of eggs is different as well. Whereas girls may really get into the beautiful colors, we end up with eggs with 'simulated blood stains', or in a nice shade of black... or better yet, their favorite new color 'bludge'.

Every year we MUST have the bludge egg. Bludge is a combination of all the dyes, the egg dipped in each one for a prolonged time, giving it a nice brown color.

Essentially, bludge is the color of crap.

Bludge is the color egg that Iron Tail would give out.

I guess in essence, Iron Tail would be most happy in a boys' home for Easter.

Most definitely.

You nailed it.

No pretty eggs for us, since the girl left home. The "bludge" egg pretty much describes my boys' masterpiece, Project Hideous.

Boys are curious to see what Project Hideous looks like inside. I don't know why they would think it would look any different than the other hard boiled eggs. I noticed none of them are chomping at the bit to sample the black egg, the one we painted with India ink.

no eggs this year... we made cupcakes. Bunny butts. I'll have to see if I can get the pictures out this week.
