Rock Stars

I am not sure if it is a good idea to post this picture as I know I look quite ridiculous! But it was fun to dress up so I will anyway.
I went to a Rock Star themed Birthday Party at my sister-in-law Kelly's house which was quite fun and hilarious to see everyone dressed up...although i think I went a little overboard! Thanks to Crystal for the great make-up and to Carly for the loan of her studded belt which I think really made the outfit.
The next night the kids had a Rock Star Party and had fun dressing up too.

One a penny, Two a penny, Hot Cross Buns

On Good Friday we decided to have a Hot Cross Bun making competition - this was mostly a round-a-bout way of getting lots of hot cross buns to eat! Crystal and Sam aren't fans of hot cross buns so she made cinnamon rolls, Elle's buns were raisin-less as she hates them, Mum and I made normal hot cross buns and I made custard buns aswell. All were delicious but I think everyone agreed that Mums were definately superior.

The Yellow Eyed Bunnies I made for the kids classes at school.

Elle called them "Boggly Eyed Bunnied"

2 Disappoinments in One Day!

So, I finally watched Twilight. I've been hearing about this movie/book for months - admittedly the comments haven't all been good but on a whole I would say most people I have talked to loved the movie and have watched it at least 15 times (well, Isabella Tunstall has anyway).

It hasn't been released in NZ yet but a friend of ours lent us a copy she got from the states. I was so excited to see what all the hype was about! So I'm watching and after about 10 minutes I start thinking - surely this is going to get better! But it doesn't! I wouldn't watch it again if you paid me and I am super happy I didn't actually spend money going to see it at the movies. It was lame. Utterly Disappointed!

The second disappoinment of the day came when I made Easter Bunny cookies for the kids to take to school. Did you know that for some bizaare reason M&M's are now sold as single colours? Thats right people - no more lovely rainbow of colours - just one boring colour per bag! I'm thinking maybe the recession has hit the m&m company and they can no longer afford to pay someone to mix up all the colours.
I got the m&m's to be the eyes on the bunnies and my lucky colour was yellow - so all the bunnies had to have yellow eyes. I think they would have looked much better with all different coloured eyes but I guess now there won't be kids fighting over who gets the red eyes and who gets the blue eyes. Yellow's not so bad but I'll be really annoyed if I ever buy a bag of m&m's and they're all brown ... And Mum will hate to get a bag of blue ones cos she reakons she can taste the difference!?!
