Easter Eve

Friday Jess came home from school to spend Easter weekend with us. We always do a family party for the girls on Easter at our house so everyone can have one get together instead of three. So much easier!

I came home and picked her up and then we went shopping for Easter food and supplies. So much fun hanging out with her. I miss those little hanging out times the most I think!

Saturday morning we did a little bit of cleaning and party prep and then Scott and I went to Home Depot to get a new BBQ.  After that I had to go to Stockton to get my hair done. My sister in law was applying to work at a salon and she needed someone to get their hair done and she had asked me to do it.

When I got there my brother Joe and my niece Adrian were there too. Joe got his hair cut first and Adrian and I played Go Fish and then took selfies :)

My sister in law did my hair and then I went home. Well first I stopped at the store AGAIN to get a few more things that I forgot from the last 12 times I went.

I got home and with some steaks and got Scott to BBQ them on our new grill (yummy but way too expensive. Beef just seems to be so high now). And the kids dyed Easter Eggs.

I had bought an egg dying kit at the dollar store but when the kids opened it up it only came with four colors. Now when we were kids four colors would have been fine but these days that's just not good enough.

A quick Google search  told us we could make our own with 10 drops of food coloring, a teaspoon of vinegar and 1/2 a cup of hot water. All things we actually had, AMAZING!

I was happy that the kids all wanted to do them. They are all getting older and sometimes it's like pulling teeth to get them to do the old traditions but they were all into it.

I posted this pic on Instagram  and Facebook and people were like OMG that's so many eggs! Usually we actually don't have any eggs left over after Easter. The kids make deviled eggs and everyone eats them up. We were missing a few people this year so we did actually have eggs left over but I'm sure they won't last long enough to have to throw them out.

Then I stayed up the rest of the night cleaning up the kitchen and making salads for Easter.
