easter egg-stravaganza | family time

Sorry. I couldn’t resist the egg pun in the title. :)

Last night after dinner, the five of us Millers dyed our Easter eggs. A few days prior, my husband made a passing comment about how he never dyes eggs. After some thinking, I am pretty sure he’s right. I don’t think he’s ever dyed eggs with us! I didn’t realize it was something he wanted to do so armed with this new knowledge,  I boiled nearly 3 dozen eggs and left them in the fridge until a time when we would all be home together.

Of course dyes get lined-up in rainbow order. :) Grace and Andrew were in charge of the glass cups. Vinny and Emily tried out a new egg spinner that my Mom picked up for us.

This picture speaks volumes and makes me happy we waited to dye eggs together.

These eggs were a craft project the kids worked on last year. Aren’t they pretty? I bought some of those brown pressed paper eggs and let them go crazy with paint and glitter. If you know me and the way that I craft, you know that I feel strongly about the fact that glitter makes everything better.

Another cute craft project from last year. We made half a dozen of these sock bunnies last year and gave away all but one to family. You just need a baby sock, rice to stuff it with, a cotton ball for the head, a miniature hair rubberband, ribbon to cover the wrapped rubberband, a pom pom nose, felt teeth and googly eyes. Oh and this guy has a cotton tail too. :)

Have a great afternoon!

    So sweet! Emily looks so teenager-ish in that picture of her placing an egg on the table. And love the sock bunnies…I have a box of old baby socks in the basement!
