Growing up in England…I have no recollection of dyeing Easter eggs. I remember eating chocolate. Giving my sister a Cadbury’s chocolate egg, but not dyeing Easter eggs. So perhaps it is an American tradition. We started dyeing Easter eggs when my daughter was 4 months old. She’s now 13 and we’re still doing it.
As I talked to my husband on the phone this morning, we both realized that we have eggs but not dyeing kit. A trip to CVS was all we needed. Now we have the kit, the eggs purchased on a previous grocery trip, and a couple of chocolate bunnies.
Which brings me to “what did you give up for Lent?” I gave up chocolate…it was supposed to be everything chocolate, but became just chocolate candy. So, my children had better hang on to their Easter bunnies because come Easter Sunday I will be devouring some kind of chocolate!
Isn’t dying Easter eggs the best! I have done it for as far back as I can remember. Took a short break from it before children, but started up again once my first son was born.
We love to do this. Unfortunately we could not afford it this year., (Hubby out of work 4 weeks now ands since he is self employed we do not qualify for unemployment) but the kids will have fun at the church Easter egg hunts tonight and tomorrow. 🙂 Great blog!!
hey, I have a contest going on in my cupcakesandarbonne blog. I am trying to promote my new business I am starting and It is a free giveaway to get me some exposure. Join if you like. 🙂
I picked up a dye kit a few days ago at CVS. Prices are up on the dye kits this year over last year but really it is one of the last holiday traditions that doesn’t cost a fortune. Happy Easter all…
