Happy Easter to Everyone!!

We colored a few eggs today so the Easter Bunny would have less work to do.


Ella is my Mini-Me Missy Apron Goddess who can pull off the camouflage sweatshirt with the tan leaf print apron while coloring earth tone eggs. She's got it all together at the wise age of three.


I love that the brown eggs our hens lay don't color like normal eggs. They take on pretty natural-looking shades of color. We added oil to the dye to get the mottled look.


Eat some chocolate for me!!! And have a hoppin' happy Easter!

Oh, I totally missed that one with me being gone and running around - so sorry. I love coloring eggs with the children. I normally do a batch by myself, just for the kid inside of me, but this year, I was camping and didn't get a chance to do any...but I eat a lot of hard boiled eggs. I just have to imagine they were colorful. Ella's such a cute little girl.

That is the first time I've met those beautiful plants. Thanks for indroducing me!!!!

I also enjoyed the raptor, Terry worked as a lineman for 37 years and they had to protect those birds for just that reason. Nests.
