The Day Before Easter

Happy Easter, everyone!  We are off to a friend's Easter Egg hunt in a few minutes, so in the interest of time, I'll divide my usual Easter post into two.  

On the Day Before Easter, I got a gift from Josie.  It was a paper chick in a handpainted "basket."  Cute, no?

We also dyed Easter Eggs - a process that was much more successful than last year when I forgot to buy white eggs and we learned the hard way that brown eggs don't dye nearly as well.

We aren't planning to have our own egg hunt, but it didn't seem like Easter unless we dyed some eggs, so we did.

Henry was at a lacrosse game and didn't participate in the festivities - which meant more eggs for the girls to decorate and no one around to tell them that they were doing it wrong.

There was much "double" dying and lots of crayoning.

I think the eggs turned out perfectly.

What do you think?

We prepared treat-filled plastic eggs for the Egg Hunt Party we are attending.  Each child is supposed to bring 20 eggs to hide - but that doesn't mean that you have to find only the eggs you brought.  You are allowed to pick up any 20 eggs that you see.  The last time we went to this party, the eggs were all found within 10 seconds and the children spent the rest of their time there eating the spoils.  That's what happens when the children get older!

Well, we're off!  I hope you all enjoy your day.

I agree, it just seems like you should dye eggs on Easter. I guess it's just always been a tradition for me. The eggs turned out great. Hope you all had a blessed day!
