Yesterday we hosted my family for the easter egg hunt and dinner.
I think everyone had a good time, although it was very hot and
it turned out to be the longest egg hunt in history.
There were some lessons learned:
- Don't let little boys hide the eggs - they make them really hard to find.
- Don't fill eggs with chocolate candy if the temperature is going to hit 80+.
- 22 eggs per child is probably too many.
- The men prefer their ice tea to be regular ice tea flavor - no fancy tangerine zinger for them.

Eventually everyone had to join the search efforts.
The table isn't going down in history as one of my best, but possibly the brightest. I picked up the pink table cloth at HomeGoods on Saturday. As you can see I didn't get around to ironing it. The green chargers are from Target (Christmas decor). My family isn't fussy, so I just cut some greens and flowers from the garden and we used paper napkins.
This butter dish was a big discussion piece. I'm not sure why they thought it was so funny.
Did you know that you can use a Sharpie pen to write on porcelain and it will wash off?
That's a little trick I learned from LuLu Powers.
I also got some ribbing for using little salt cellars and tiny little salt spoons which I put on tiny little dishes. Cute, but not so manly I guess.
Thanks to Leslie and my mom who helped out with the prep and clean up.
I really appreciate all your help!
