egg monsters and butterflies (about Easter)

We made Easter egg monsters. Mine is the yellow one with one eye and a mustache.

StinkerBell's e.e. monster was a kitty

DramaQueen said her e.e. monster was a man

the unicorn is called shiny mane

the dragon's name is popcorn after a book that grandma H had called 'The Popcorn Dragon'

if you enlarge the pictures you will see the worm is sad and the butterfly is happy - the text reads "Easter makes all the difference."

DQ has the day off from school. Since the girls have been very squirrely, I decided I could not stay home with them. So we loaded up a bunch of stuff and took it to my favorite thrift store and managed not to bring anything home but a few books and a gift for the mil . Oh and a shield that we found for 29 cents.

The girls have been listening to Focus on the Family's Radio Drama of The Chronicles of Narnia (we let them listen to everything but The Last Battle) and so they are all about dragons and lost princes and princesses and talking creatures.

I had a brilliant project idea today - it flopped. Oh well, I guess I can't have everything turn out the way I want it to.


  1. These are adorable!

    If you don't mind me asking, what camera do you use? What type of camera would you recommend for an amateur such as myself (our camera is annoying me I can't do close ups and if I switch off the flash the pictures are fuzzy). :) No rush for an answer just when you have time, you can email me if you prefer.

    Thanks chuck.


  3. Absolutely delightful to see what your kids are busy doing. And I love that an outing consisted of the thrift store - wonderful, wonderful!

  4. Cute little critters. :-) Never seen an egg, make into a monster! ,-)


  5. I love the pencil holder! Really cute things, thank you for sharing!
