Peeps Revised: Cuter but Still Inedible

The Eldest declared her love for the glittery marshmallows I so loathe, and then decorated them. Fine, I’ll admit, that’s both clever and more appealing, though I’m no fan of jellybeans either.

Easter was mildly delayed, but this happened. Spring Break, Juniors Style.
