It was freezing on Easter, literally! But, it was sunny so the Easter bunny hid the eggs and put out a great lego zoo for the girls. There were also lovely baskets with chocolate hiding inside on the table.
Since it was so cold, the easter egg hunt was expedited. Lily had no interest, which was great because the grass was wet and cold. She was happy to hold her basket while Opa carried her.
Clair did all of the hunting, and she even spotted one out of the upstairs window a few hours later (the Easter bunny didn’t count correctly).
And princess Clair (as she has become) enjoyed her dress all day. Actually, she has worn this dress everyday since. I think I need to hide it tomorrow she she doesn’t make a mess of it.
On the subjects of princesses, Matthias’ mom has some antique children’s’ books of classic fairy tails. It is interesting to read them and see how they differ from the Disney version I grew up with. For example, there was no magical kiss in Snow White. As the dwarfs were taking the body of Snow White to be buried, they tripped over dopey, and as her body flew out, the poisoned piece of apple flew out freeing her from the curse. The prince just happened along around that time but was kind of secondary to the story. Also, in Hansel and Gretel, he is imprisoned by the witch, and she single-handedly puts the witch in the oven and rescues him! Who know these feminine archetypes were so much more kick-ass in the older versions!
