Happy Easter!

The Easter Bunny was very tricky this year. He left a riddle and the girls had to find their baskets. Gemma was really unhappy when Maya found hers first but she quickly found her basket and all was forgotten. Then we went downstairs and the Easter Bunny had hid eggs all over the house. Why did the Easter Bunny bring all of my favorite chocolates and not leave me any? Those girls better keep a close eye on their goodies.

Easter Eggs!

Unfortunately Easter is NOT a big holiday in the Middle East. Hopefully the Easter Bunny brings loads of sweets cause there isn't much to find here. I have not been able to find egg dye either Easter we've been here but I did manage to find a egg stamping kit that I had in the decorations bin. Added some water to the dried out pads and it worked OK. Not what I wanted for my girls but we have to make do. They got tired of the stamps and decided finger painting was the best option. If you are out and about and see some dye after Easter please pick some up for me or we will be in the same situation next year.


My girls are CRAZY about dinosaurs right now. The other day we found these foam puzzles for a whopping 2.50 Qatari Riyal a piece. I lost all ability to save money and bought all of them. 5 different dinosaur puzzles. Of course we had to put them together that evening as soon as we walked in the door. They were lots of fun. Best .68 cents I've ever spent!
