Easter Eve

I hope everyone had a fun Spring Break and a wonderful Easter! We did-we were able to spend it all with my mom, sister and brothers. It was so nice to have my family come and visit us! I was sad this morning when they all had to go. Now back to normal life again.....

Now to blog all the Easter stuff. First, I'll start off with the night before Easter. We did the traditional dyeing of the eggs. Thats always a fun activity the kids look forward to every year. There is always the competition to see whose is the best. I think mine was:) I wrote "One Hot Mama" on my egg. Ella kept calling it the big hot mama egg. I picked out a glitter eggs kit this year and the kids loved how their eggs sparkled. After we were done, we left them out for the Easter bunny to hide along with the candy filled eggs he brings every year.

The girls took their jobs very seriously

The finished product. My how they shine!

Notice the totally smashed looking one at the bottom. Ella dropped this one about ten times as she was dyeing and decorating it. I kept hearing, "Awwwww!" as it rolled across, smashed into or fell off the table :)
