Well another week has zipped by and the weather lately is definitely a kiss from God!
Today my post is about...eggs.
Do you dye eggs for Easter?
I loved this activity with my kids. No matter how careful we were our hands would inevitably get stained with blue or red dye.
One year in particular (when I was very very pregnant with my Son) my daughter and I dyed eggs. I worked in a school so I had a whole week off and my Husband and I decided that we would take a family trip before the arrival of our second Baby.
I packed our suitcases and the day of the trip we were all ready......except....
I realized that the dyed eggs that were in a little bowl in the fridge were missing.
My daughter who was three looked a bit guilty when asked...
"Sweetie, did you take the eggs?"
"Um Yes Momma."
She thought it would be fun to hide the eggs as we had done with the plastic candy filled ones.
OK, these were real eggs
we were leaving on a week long trip
It was already very warm outside.
Hot......hard boiled......eggs.........in a rented apartment where the landlord lived right down stairs.
I had visions of coming home from our trip to find a hazmat team inside our apartment searching for the cause of the stench.
Needless to say I needed to find the eggs....ASAP
I calmly asked her where she hid them.....
"I donno Momma, I forgot." was her answer.
I started the search as I called out to my husband
"Hon, WE HAVE GOT TO FIND THOSE EGGS!!!!!!!"
Off we went on an impromptu scavenger hunt for eggs
There was one under her bed.
and one in her closet and a few in her drawer and one on the window sill.
I think we got them all....We went on our trip and had a great time.
Now that I think of it weren't there 6 eggs? Oh well, maybe somewhere in that old apartment is a petrified blue hard boiled egg with stickers of flowers on it.
Please enjoy these videos of what else....Egg Art.
I had to include the most famous and expensive eggs in the world
One sold for 18 million dollars!
The next one is my favorite. It shows Romanian woman created traditional decorated eggs.
I hope you have a weekend filled with great surprises!
