Easter Eggs

Usually we dye hard boiled eggs before Easter and then the girls take them to school that week for lunch.  This year we are doing something different.  When I was out with a friend last night I found a hard boiled egg model.  The box claimed that when you put a hard boiled egg in what would come out was a hard boiled egg chick.  I simply had to purchase one so that we could give it a try.

Okay, here we go.  Obviously the first step is to boil the eggs and then cool. Okay, pretty straight forward.  Can do!











Then peel the egg and squish with the mold.  The girls really liked that part. Place in ice water for a few minutes.

Final step, open and plop out your chick before adding the feet because who wants a footless chick.









The only question remaining is, should they eat the head or butt first?




Our March Break…better late than never

Okay, I spent the first part of the break with a double ear infection but that didn’t stop us from having fun.

Glenn did some skiing with the girls.  They were thrilled to finally get out on their skis.  Then they topped it off with hot chocolate and marshmallows.  What is better than that?











Elspeth had a birthday party on the Sunday.  She had fun with a friend and got to go rock climbing.  A super fun way to kick off the break for her.  Katrine kicked off the break by participating in a workshop with Kurt Browning!!!!  Kurt Browning!!!!!  I think that we were equally as excited about it.  Her cherry on top of the sundae was swimming that evening.










The rest of the break was a blur of playdates for the girls and some early evenings for me. It ended on a high note with an Easter egg hunt.  Enjoy the photos.
