It has been a LONG time since I posted. Our computer was going thru some extensive 'back-up' process that made it virtually impossible to upload photos. I think that the process is done, although I can't be sure.

Easter was as fun as always. We started by dying eggs on Easter Eve. I spend weeks picking out the coolest egg-dying tools and toys, and boil enough eggs to feed our entire neighborhood.

The kids usually finish up in about 30 seconds. (Notice Owen's missing tooth in the picture above. Can you believe it was his first??).

We usually make a ginormous mess, and this year was no exception. I did learn a new trick - putting the eggs inside a wire whisk. This completely stops the kids from grabbing wet Easter Eggs with their hands, and turning into multi-colored monsters. Unfortunately, it did nothing to stop them from breaking at least half the eggs.

Before it's all said and done, Owen starts begging to 'crack an egg.' I don't know what his fascination is with that, but I never let him do it because he won't eat them. It just seems so wasteful. I'd rather wait 7 weeks to throw out (and waste) the 3 or 4 dozen eggs I find in the back of the fridge.
