Easter Fun

I didn't get any pictures of the process only the finished product. This year instead of just doing the regular old egg dying we decided to blow out some eggs and paint them. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be, the kids had a blast though blowing the stuff out of their eggs. And They had even more fun painting them.
Now to dye eggs this year I mixed 1/2c. warm water with 1T. white vinegar and about 4 drops food coloring. They used white crayons to make markings on the eggs then put them back in the dye, it worked pretty well :)
We have a lot of people coming over for a BBQ. I hope to get some pictures but we'll see, I did want to post my menu. More to get it in my head, I had it all written down in a little notebook, with my grocery list, that I left at the grocery store, aren't I smart :)

Steak & Vegie Kabobs
BBq shredded Chicken on buns
Crab Salad
Green Salad
Scalloped potatoes
Challah Bread
Jello with bunny marshmallows :)
Deviled eggs
Veggie platter
Brownies with Strawberries and Vanilla Ice Cream

Now I know I am forgetting something, I just can't think of what right now, hopefully I will remember soon!
Happy Easter!!!
