Around here even dying easter eggs is hard...

Yes, how complicated is it to dye eggs? In this house we seem to be challenged even in that department. A insisted we should dye just a few so she started preparing. First there was a mishap with the food coloring.

Then she kept insisting on trying to wrap those eggs with rubberbands and onion skin to make "cool patterns". We ended up with cool patterns alright. She kept dropping eggs on the kitchen counter and cracking them. I found some cool patterns later when I peeled them.
My egg was the coolest though. It's a self-portrait.
Another challenge around here is communication. A and I were making the ham and potatos and we were told dinner was a 3pm. At 2:30 I come out of my bathroom wearing only a towel to be met by my mom, her boyfriend and another friend bringing food into the house. While I scurryed back to the bathroom, mom informed A we were having dinner on our patio since the weather was so nice. WTF!! We weren't prepared for a house full of people! We had only just pulled the patio furniture out of winter storage yesterday. We hustled and made it work but we were searching for extra chairs and tables. I was complaining at the time but everything turned out okay. If I'm going to have people over I am glad it was nice enough to be outside since our house is just too small to accomodate everyone comfortably. A even pulled out our rainbow umbrella and proudly put it up. Mark this date down: Easter outside in MN is unheard of. It's usually still really cold and rainy or snowing.

We did have a fabulous time watching the dogs play and chase their cousin, Buddy the pug, around the yard. Poor fool didn't know what to think when he had 4-5 other dogs chasing him down.
Oh, and a puppy loves to roll in the dirt after their bath and make mud. Little bugger can't get adopted soon enough!

Where did you find that umbrella??

Jelly-the umbrella we bought at Sam's Club for only $22. It's actually a beach umbrella so it's really light. We bought that one after we had 2 expensive ones destroyed by the wind.
