As we aren't religious folks, Mr. H and I don't celebrate Easter traditionally (we both usually spend the day at work, tryin' to get that time and a half y'all!), but we (I) do like to dye eggs. We do it every year and this year was no exception!

I know there are all kinds of fancy egg dying kits out there, but we stick to the food coloring, vinegar, and hot water method. Mostly because usually we do this last minute, late at night.

We drew all kinds of things on them with white crayon, only to pull them out of the dye and find our drawings/messages had disappeared! So sad, that's never happened before. Damn you crayola! You let us down! Such a bummer, it's always so fun to find out what each other wrote/drew. Oh well, we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless!

I sported some bunny ears for the occasion.

 Lot's of giggling, of course.

Sophie got in on the bunny ear action. Doesn't she look pleased?

Message-less eggs. Sad, sad, sad. We summed up our messages and drawings and relayed them verbally, but it just wasn't the same. At least they're pretty colors! Except for that greyish one... not sure what's going on there (I tried, and failed, to make purple). 

And as tradition, after a few minutes of enjoying our master pieces we busted them open,

and made deviled eggs!

Someone (I'll give you a hint, it wasn't me) forgot the mayo at work, so I had to improvise with the filling. Turns out olive oil is a good (and probably healthier) substitute! They were yummy and we ate them quickly. Good food never lasts long around us.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter doing Eastery things. And I hope the Easter bunny was good to you! He visited us this weekend via Brendon's momma and we scored a giant basket of candy and goodies. Our teeth will most likely fall out by the end of the week, but it will be worth it.
