Egg Trouble

We had some set backs with our Easter weekend. The kids had a great time decorating the eggs. Daniel and I had some miscommunications, however, with the boiling process. I thought he was leaving them to boil waaaay too long. So I kept insisting that he turn the heat off. What he failed to mention was that he decided to boil them...on low. Really they just got warmish. Which meant that when we tried to peel them to make egg salad the next day, we found out that we had around 50 ruined eggs in our fridge. But they were very pretty.

Easter morning we woke up very early to have our Easter egg hunt. We had to because Miss Lady and Thumbelina were leaving with their parents to go to a Buddhist temple to celebrate Cambodian New Year. They spent all day Saturday and Sunday there.

Daniel and I attempted to make the egg hunt more exciting by hiding special eggs that had Chuck E. Cheese coins inside. Unlike the rest of the eggs which just had regular coins in them, these coins entitled the finder to exchange them for a dollar. We also had one egg that contained a plastic coin with John 3:16 written on it. Gloria found that one and won an extra special day with Daniel. They are planning to go to Fazoli's kids' night, just the two of them. The only problem we had was that each kid was supposed to find 10 eggs, but Snow White only found 9. All the other kids helped her search, but it was no use. And it was one of the eggs that had a special coin in it. Overall, it was a fun time. The kids are still working on devouring the giant chocolate bunnies we got them. We also attempted to watch "The Gospel of John" but never got around to finishing it.
