I plopped a blank egg into the pink dye, and watched it slowly morph to a bright pink! The best color, as well as my favorite. Emily had helped fill up the mugs with vinegar, water, and food coloring. The much less important side of my first Easter with the AGDA family, Egg Dying!
Most of my sisters had dropped one egg in a mug and left, but Molly, Emily, and I stayed.
The table was filled with glitter from Saige’s Glitter eggs she forbade anyone to touch.
And we only had a few eggs left to dye!
I was dressed in my cozy pajamas, because it’s COLD in California right now!
“The Easter Bunny is coming tonight, Right?” I asked Emily. I had never had a customary Easter in my whole life, and I was excited for my first taste of a complete family holiday.
“Yes Paisley, the Easter bunny is coming. But before we hunt for eggs we have to go to Church!”
I sighed. Church was sometimes BORING, but I knew that the Easter Sunday mass would be a beautiful service.
“I’m excited for the Easter Bunny too Paisley! He’s going to bring me CHOCOLATE!”
She aimed her suspicious glance at Emily.
“Molly! How many times do I have to tell you, you can’t catch the Easter Bunny. And if I see you setting a trap like EVERY single year before, you will be-”
“Grounded. I know. But Emily, I have a good feeling about this year! I have the perfect idea for a trap!”
I giggled, “You sound like Fred from Scooby Doo!”
Molly rolled her eyes at that.
11:53, later this evening
I awoke from my sleep to a loud CRASH!
Thousands of thoughts raced though my head, Was that the Easter Bunny?
I stumbled out of bed, and made my way to the Living Room.
And then I saw Molly. I whispered, careful not to wake my sleeping sisters like Molly had, “Molly! What are you doing!” I looked at the clock, “It’s practically midnight!”
“I’m setting a trap! Duh! The Easter bunny WILL fall for it this year!”
“But Emily will ground you Molly!”
“Pshh, she won’t ground me when we have Church tomorrow!”
A wild look came across her face, “Paisley, I need you to help me!”
“With what? The trap! But Emily said NOT to!”
I stopped myself. This could be fun! Maybe this year, Molly and I would catch the Easter Bunny! “Alright Molly, I’ll do it.”
“Ok! This is how it works,” I peered over her shoulder to see a HUGE apparatus standing behind her.
She continued, “I stole Sam’s old Bird cage she used to play with, and hid the eggs that the easter Bunny wants to hide in it! He’ll trip over the ramp that goes to the chicken coop.”
I finished her sentence for her, “And SNAP! The lid will fall on top of him!”
“That’s right! Genius, right?”
It was genius. But there was one problem.
“But Molly! How will the eggs get hidden!?”
“Relax, I’ll hide them once we see that the Easter bunny’s trapped. We’ll ask him some stuff, and then we’ll release him and put away the bird-cage. It’s foolproof!”
“Foolproof”, I confirmed.
“High five Molly!”
We high-fived, and left for our beds without leaving a trace of evidence that we were ever there. Well, except for the giant bird-cage in the living room.
Come up with your own story line from the pictures and comment what you came up with down below on how The Easter Bunny got past the trap!
Molly and I were rather disappointed to see that the Easter bunny had somehow hidden our eggs while getting past the trap, but we were excited to take our family picture of 2017 under the flower arch in Sammy’s garden. The dresses we have on are the NINE matching ones that grandma C sewed for us, and we LOVE them!
I got the prettiest one, I think! It’s pink, and they all fit perfectly. We were the prettiest dollies at the Easter service.
A pretty bunny hairclip from the deadly Target dollar section!
Everyone got pretty new profile pictures taken, so we’ll be posting them in the Meet the Dolls Page soon!! Isn’t Grace’s flower bun just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen!?
After pictures, we had our Easter Egg hunt! Molly was pretty fierce in her competition to win the chocolate!
The Easter Bunny gave us some gorgeous and DELICIOUS Easter Baskets. (More on that after the photo story)
Grace prepared for us a delicious Easter Brunch, complete with pretty pancakes, donuts, fruit, and a perfect Easter HAM! Yummy!
We all sat down, and prayed for our meal.
I banged my spoon on my cup, like I’d seen people do in movies. Unfortunately, it was bit loud, but, hey, it called attention!
“Excuse me everyone, I’d like to say a few words. I’d like to thank you all, for giving me the best Easter I could ever ask for. You all truly are the best sisters anyone could ever have. This has been my first true family Easter, and while I didn’t catch the Easter bunny, it’s been the best one I’ve ever seen, even in the movies. I’m very thankful that Jesus rose again today, to forgive our sins. And I don’t think I have much else to say so… Let’s eat Everyone!”
So have a happy Easter everyone. Wishing you lots of chocolate! But always remember what Easter is truly about.
Hey guys! Hope you enjoyed that pot of mushy photo story!
Now for some stuff about where everything is from in this post, because I worked really hard to make everything perfect.
This little guys is a bunny plush my Mom bought just for me at the Dollar store. Thanks Mom! I think he’s the perfect Easter Bunny.
I also edited all the night photos. If you ever want to do this, all you have to do is go in Picmonkey and click the exposure tab. Then, turn the brightness down to -49. I don’t edit my photos ever, but picmonkey is good for if you do need to occasionally!
The egg dye was water and food coloring in mugs. I had TO BE REALLY CAREFUL. I have carpet, so if it spilled it would’ve been a major disaster. I don’t recommend doing this is you have carpet. *nervous laugh*
We’ve got a tradition for Easter family Pictures now! Yay!
Obviously my photography has greatly improved. XD
All the mini doll eggs were from Hobby Lobby for really cheap, and the egg cartons were filled with bubble gum eggs, also from Hobby lobby!
The pancakes were real! (except for Paisley’s) XD
The dresses WERE SO PRETTY! Thanks so much Grandma C, I loved them so much, and will cherish them forever. They are adorable! She spent a lot of time on them, and I just can’t express with words how much I
The baskets were treat bins or something from hobby lobby!
This one has clay skittles, a twix bar, and a present.
Chocolate, a necklace, a chick, and a postcard.
A bunny, a chick, chocolate, Twix, and a lollipop.
2 cookies, a pinwheel, and 2 chicks.
