Easter

8 Apr

Our wonderful friends and roommates from college were able to visit for Easter.

We did an Easter egg hunt on Saturday when the weather was nice.

The girls tried the hard boiled eggs.

Did you know that if you put eggs in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes you will hard boil them? Soooo much easier than the normal boil and turn off and put in cold water method.

My great friend Molly and I decorated Ukranian Easter Eggs.

You keep adding wax and dying the eggs.  It takes a bit of patience but is a fun craft and the end result is very fun to unveil.

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter.

Here are some eggs my little sister made:

    Looks like a great weekend! The girls are si cute hunting eggs. I missed making Ukranian eggs with everyone this year so glad you had a chance to make them:) and without the kids help!

      yeah the whole fire and hot wax aspect of Ukranian eggs makes it a craft for the older crowd. but Aleah got to dye a couple eggs (the last picture on the post) and she thought it was pretty neat

    I really wanted to do this but was lacking the tool! After seeing this I now know I need to get one for next year.
