The Cousins Came!

This past weekend we had family visit. We only see them once or twice a year, so it was such a nice treat. Miah requested that we wait to have our Easter egg hunt until the cousins were here, so that's what we did. Before the big day, we were busy making gifts and dying eggs.

We tried some natural egg-dying with onion skins, cabbage, chili powder, and paprika. The cabbage turned out the best - a beautiful dark blue after sitting all night. And we did the regular tablets from a box too - some with rubber bands to make white stripes.

When the cousins arrived, the kids had so much fun playing, dressing up, hunting eggs, and playing with the chickens.
