Yes Emily, you were an egg once...

Over Easter weekend, Kurin suggested that we dye eggs with Emily, it being her first Easter. Needless to say, Target's selection of egg dye was minimal at best. I basically had Sports or Transformers to pick from. After much scavenging, I did find a Hello Kitty kit. Score! I boiled the eggs Saturday night so that we could dye eggs Sunday morning. As easy as this sounds, I am clueless as to how to boil an egg. Special thanks to the Internet for helping me learn to do this correctly without eggs asploding everywhere (yes, asploding is a word in LOLcat speak). Here are our supplies. The egg kit came with a super-cute Hello Kitty chicken poster, and lots of little stickers and egg holders and whatnot.

Obviously Emily didn't do a whole lot when it came to the process but she was a good sport about dressing up in her Easter PJs, wearing her bunny hat and basically humoring Mommy and Daddy for a photo op.

Here is Emily with her Hello Kitty eggs. Daddy ate them soon after LOL
After fun with eggs, we headed to Grandma and Cedo's house for Easter Dinner. It was awesome. They made enough food for about 10 and it was 4 of us plus Emily.


We had ham, leg of lamb, arabic rice (hashweh), arabic potato salad, deviled eggs, baked beans, and green bean casserole. Yeeum!

Emily received an Easter basket from the bunny who lives at our house under our deck and then the Easter bunny that lives at Grandma and Cedo's house got her a basket too! She cashed in! Two books, a stuffed lamb, some stuffed bunnies, a puppy dog teething ring, and her first Longaberger basket (thanks Grandma).
All in all, it was a nice Easter....

I LOLed about the having to look up how to boil an egg on the internet. I have to do that too since I rarely boil eggs and I can't seem to remember the proper procedure. We need an egg SOP.
