3 Easters: Metzger Style

Last we had a 3 Easter Holiday as well....with so many family so spread out we ended up having multiple Easters...this usually happens with all our holidays as well as many other families out there. The more the merrier..or Eastier. LOL (i'm a dork...this i know)

 1st Easter
At my Mom's house celebrated with my Mom, her boy friend Kenny, my sisters Anna and Sarah, my grandma and grandpa Holm and us! Funny to think....there were 11 people there...and our family alone made up 5 of those 11. Hahaha! Good thing we are DONE!
Brooklyn trying to devour her Easter Bunny, Easter Egg Hunting,Bradley showing off his muscles!, Dinner time and family....AND GRANDPA sitting at the KIDDY table! ;)

2nd Easter
Lets head to Moses Lake to visit Grandma Joyce. 
All worth the total almost 6 hour drive. The kids were great! 
Thanks Daddy for driving, thats an over 15 FEET tall wall of SNOW along the freeway, pit stop at Owen's Meats and The Cle Elem Bakery for snacks, Bradley taking a picture of me with his Leap Pad, SO AMAZED by the huge windmill farms over east.

Brooklyn's First experience with grass...she wasnt too sure about the stuff,Bubble blowing and egg hunting, relaxing after their hunt, egg inventory, Grandmas doggy "Nicholas" wanted Braedens toy chick SOOO bad...Braeden was NOT fond of that idea!

Happy Easter! Patton Style

This year was the first in four that my daughter, Evie, was able to hunt for eggs outside.  Between her age, snow, and rain, my poor kid has been left to hunt indoors.  I was worried when we first woke up because it was really windy but it calmed down a little before we headed outside.  Here's a recap of our Easter morning, Patton style!

E. Bunny was here
This picture was taken at night so it's a little dark.  There's an empty glass of milk with the chewed end of a carrot to show that the Easter Bunny had been by and enjoyed a snack.

Checking out the spread.
You have to be sure to empty out the entire contents of your basket to be sure you didn't miss anything!  Have some candy for breakfast with a side of cereal and then be sure to bug your parents until you all get dressed and ready to hunt for the eggs.

If only the wind would cooperate!
We tried to take a nice picture, her hair kept blowing in her face.  She is wearing two piece butterfly outfit. Halter -op with a handkerchief-style bottom and matching capris made by my mom. Evie is also wearing a long-sleeved shirt and thick tights for warmth.

Wet hair doesn't slow her down!
My husband, Dave, hid the eggs while Evie and I got dressed and ready.  Our pooches would eat them if we put them out too much before we are ready to be out there.  Eggs are good for their coats and makes them shiny.

Here's one on the climber!
Having a mix of easy to find eggs and some more challenging makes for a good time!

Where are they?
Most she found right away.  It was fun for me to find them just before her.

Oh! In the bird feeder, silly Bunny!
My brother and sis-in-law were able to stop by long enough to watch her too.

This year was my first to get most of the eggs to boil without cracking.  From a carton of eighteen, seventeen made it into the dye.  I read somewhere that if your eggs are room temperature, they are less likely to crack during cooking.  Ours weren't quite that warm but from the store to the stove was about 30 minutes.  We love dying eggs and could do it for hours if we could!

An egg in Evie's favorite color, rainbow!
We've had a beautiful Easter and hope that you are enjoying it too!

Easter Food Craft's

 We try to be creative in our household without having to spend any extra money! Love these easy ways to add alittle surprise to the table!

You can also use the bunny cookie cutter for this next food craft...we will Easter morning!
This is also our boy's favorite breakfast!

"Egg N' Hat" or "Egg N' Nest"
I love this simple breakfast as it was something my mom used to make...I'm pretty sure it's a traditional meal in everyone's household!

Make sure to add more butter between flipping...or you can pre butter the bread to make this easier.

Quick Craft: Our Easter Gifts

This year instead of spending a ton of money on a bundle of flowers for each mom and grandma in the family...we have many different mom's and grandma's. We decided to grow and make our own. A handcrafted gift made with love is the best type of gift.

Quick Easter Planter/Hostess Gift
10 Minute Craft
What you need:
Empty Baby Food Jar
Brown Twine
Seeds or Small Flower

1. Tie Ribbon and Twine around Empty Baby Food Jar.
 I tied them into one knot together than tied the ribbon into a knot over the original knot. Then made sure my twine was cut long enough that I could tie it into a bow over ribbon knot. Trim Ribbon if needed once tied an in place.

2.Add rocks to bottom of jar for soil drainage (just enough so soil is not resting on bottom of jar) and add soil & seeds or plant.
 I had already pre planted flowers in my Jiffy Green House Planter. I cut out the desired number of plants, then tore the side to make the flower start fit into the baby food jar. 

3. Add top soil, either over seeds of around edges of pre planted bio degradable pot, and water 
(I also fertilize)

Stay Crafty and Happy Easter~
