Carved Easter Eggs, Easter Eggland, and Dying Eggs

Late last night Nathan called a friend and asked, "Hey, do you want to go do something stupid?" They then left for the dental school campus where they proceeded to carve hollow eggs with their dental tools--a drill fitted with a diamond bur, to be somewhat exact. Here are most of Nathan's results. We did have a casualty before we could get a picture of all of them.

Very good for his first time, I think.

Also this week in Easter News & Events we went to Eggshelland. Check it out.



The same family has been doing this for 54 years. They hollow out the eggs, color them with enamel paint, the grandma draws everything out, and then the grandkids place the eggs on their posts to keep them in place. Isn't that cool? And surprisingly she said it isn't a year round thing for them, but that they start doing everything in January.

Lots of the moms at Church decided to do an Easter Egg Hunt on Friday. So we all brought a bunch of eggs, hid them, and let the kids go at it.

And here are Megan and Jeremy dyeing Easter Eggs.



We also learned recently that Jeremy can curl his tongue.
Megan, sadly, cannot. But don't tell her that.

Easter Morning



Megan found her Easter basket hiding in the fireplace.


Jeremy found his hiding in the shoebox. (It was everything we could do just to get him to go get his shoes so he could find that dang thing.)

When he finally went to get his shoes, he actually got his shoes before bothering to pick up his Easter basket. Funny kid.

WOW!!! You tell Nathan that. I am so glad you guys had a good Easter. Those eggs are insane. I can't believe that doesn't take them a year to lay them all out. What a great family thing to do though. I just wanted to let you know on a side that I think we are going to buying a home soon. It's the house I grew up in. We are way excited.
