Friday night was a mish mosh of excitement in my family. Traditionally, we paint 12 dozen Easter eggs for hiding on easter about a week ahead of time. I was ready to get my paint on! The festivities didn’t start until about 5:30PM, so I went for a quick 5 mile walk/run as soon as I arrived home.
When I got back, my house was full of people and they were ready to eat! There was barbeque sloppy joes, taco dip, sticky buns, and all kinds of other bad stuff 😉 People come from near & far for my Momma’s sticky buns!
I had NONE of these things. Instead, I took advantage of this bowl of cracked eggs that could not be painted!
I ate a bunch of whites filled with pineapple salsa! I also helped myself to the baby carrots that were placed on the food table in the kitchen. I steamed a bag of veggies to eat too! Cauliflower to be exact.
Then it was time for painting!
The kids were having a blast!
I have a total of 17 cousins, just on my Mom’s side of the family!
All of which were covered in dye at the end!
They were all tons of fun to watch…so creative, too!
Father, daughter love 🙂
Don’t even THINK that I would miss out on all the fun! 🙂
I definitely painted my share!
Which one is YOUR favorite?
After all the eggs were painted, we sang Happy Birthday to my cousin, Peyton!
The rest of the night was enjoyed together as family 🙂 For my dessert, instead of cake, I made a greek yogurt mess with plain yogurt, apple cinnamon instant oatmeal (raw), and a drizzle of SF syrup! YUMMMMM.
