Egg-citing Stuff Going On...

Last night Kailey had another concert at school. I couldn't make it because Caleb is still not feeling well & I had class last night. Do you think they could schedule one of these concerts so I could actually see my baby sing? Every single one this year we have a had some kind of conflict. I am really bummed.

Well at least her Daddy took lots of pictures. Kailey is the little blond angel right in the middle. Can't you almost just hear the lovely music coming from her.

Here is a shot of most of the fourth & fifth grade chorus...Kailey is in the middle row fourth from the left.


Today the girls & I decorated eggs. We had loads of fun. We are still all covered with dye & glitter. I can't wait to scrap some of these photos.

What we started with...18 hard boiled eggs!

The dye mixed with vinegar & water for the most vibrant colors.

Rachel used gold leaf on this egg...that stuff was pretty cool, but really sticky. I think this was our favorite technique this year.

The one I won't buy again was the camouflage egg kit...it didn't work well at all. The girls were a bit disappointed, but got over it quickly.

We had all kinds of fun with crayons on the eggs. This was a joint effort egg. We each added a little something & passed it until the whole egg was covered. It is the orange egg on the top left of the photo below. Pretty cool huh?!?!
This is all of our finished eggs. The girls did a fabu job again this year!! It almost seems a shame to eat them.

If you need a little creative boost....go check out Scrapdragon...the challenge is rockin' this month.
