We did two types of Easter egg dying this year. The first kind was "volcanic" eggs where you take crayon shavings and put them on hot eggs right out of the boiling pot. We discovered that for a truly "explosive" effect it was better to use a heat gun rather then rely on the egg being hot enough. A tip on these - don't buy the kit, just buy a box of crayons and a sharpener. Fun finished product though!

The other type of egg we did was 14 "carrot" gold eggs. The kit included gold paint that you mixed with colored dye and used Q-Tips to paint on. The gold didn't cover as evenly as we would have liked and was a little chunky but Chase is very into painting right now and loved the process.

Looking forward to tomorrow!

It's A Girl!

We had our 20 week ultrasound today and there wasn't anything alarming so that is great news. The tech was pretty sure it's a girl! So fun!

The Croods

We are suppose to take pictures of Chase with his drawing of his teacher "flat Ms. Lauer" during spring break - here is a picture of us at a 3D showing of the Croods this weekend. The movie was really cute and Chase loved it!

When She Woke

I hadn't ever heard of this book but a neighbor recommended it. It is about a time in the future when criminals have their skin turned different colors when convicted of crimes. Roe vs Wade is over turned and the main character is convicted of murder and turned red after having an abortion. The book tells the story of what her experience is as a red.

Very interesting read...

It's Never Too Late

I just finished reading Before I Fall. It's about a teenage girl who keeps living the last day before she dies over and over. Definitely an interesting read...

Fancy Day

It was fancy day at school today but we aren't really fancy people so all I could find was a 3T tie. It's a bit short but oh well he is still adorable.

Shopping Spree

So I have been doing some crazy baby shopping lately which is totally fun but my pregnacy is making me indecisive!

I bought a Skip Hop Grand Central diaper bag and then immediately cancelled the order to buy this Timi and Leslie Jessica bag (which was on sale so I can't return it - so hopefully I love it - lol).

Update: It came in the mail and is even better then the pictures!!! So excited!!!
