Found one
Saturday afternoon we found ourselves at my sister-in-law's, for an Easter Egg hunt. The boys had a wonderful time, finding eggs in strange places. Then it was off to my Mother's for my step father's birthday.

Great hiding place
Easter morning the boys woke up to eggs in the house. We thought it was going to rain, so the eggs were hidden throughout the house. They found them just about everywhere. Once again my oldest complained that the bunny never hid them good enough, that was until I had to help him find the remaining 2 eggs. He complained about this 2 years ago, so last year the Easter bunny brought camouflage eggs and hid them in the yard. He was not happy about that one.

killing eggs
We killed some eggs, but in the right way this time. No breaking in the bathtub. For so many years I have been picking up those egg dying kits that I didn't even think twice about anything else. A pity since Stephanie from Stop the ride fame has a great article on one of the zines I write for, Dying Easter Eggs Naturally. (great interview Stephanie)

Easter Bunny was Here
The boys got new gloves, pails, tin cups and lariats. This should be interesting.

I also made butter!

And we had meant to marble some eggs for dinner. It is something I have done for years to add a little flare to dinner parties. Some how we managed to make them looked tie died instead. Still tasted the same. (To marble eggs, crack the shells before dying them. Most people do this on accident. The dye is not going to hurt you if you eat it. And once the shell has been peeled off, you get and interesting pattern, most the time it will be a marble effect.)

Easter dinner isn't the traditional ham. We had Butterflied pork chops that were flame kissed. From scratch (not a box) stuffing, brussel sprouts and apple/butternut squash and walnut crumble pie.

After it was all said and done, it was time to pass out, while eating eggs.

And if you are anything like me, you have a ton of eggs to eat. I have a few tricks with deviled eggs that I plan on doing over this next week.

Hope you all had a great Easter Weekend!
