Easter Eggs

It is fun to get ready for Easter morning. Dying Easter eggs is a big deal around here. This year we went over to my parent's house and made our beautiful creations. We started with 7 dozen hard boiled eggs. We got some really bright pretty colors. Each kiddo had their own technique. Andrew was the fast one who went through a huge amount of eggs. Emily went for the bright colors and Ryan was thoughtful. It was fun to include my aunt Gail in the whole thing. She loves doing stuff with the family. Now, we have 44 eggs hidden around our home waiting for eager kiddos to find them. Erik gets pretty tricky too. We'll see how they do. I have faith in the kiddos. I do predict a lot of egg salad sandwiches in our future.

You are a trooper to dye 44 eggs! We didn't even dye eggs this year...just hid those cheap plastic ones. We're much more into candy that artistry. Good for you guys!

I totally know what you mean about doing activities that will make her go to sleep, I cherish her nap and bed time and am dying that she is giving her nap up! We are toying with the idea to some to the cabin again this summer but depending on the baby and how I'm feeling but I'd love you see you!
