We dyed our eggs last night. Well, not OUR eggs. Our chickens only lay shades of brown and I wanted some white eggs so that the dye would show up more so we bought some eggs. They had seriously wimpy shells, 4 cracked during the boiling process. I actually only got to dye a couple eggs since whenever I put an egg in a cup Xander would reach in and claim the egg for his own. Next year separate dye cups (I love dyeing eggs)!
No spoons for Xander! Even after a bath his hands are still dyed.
Xander loves dyeing eggs too!
This morning Xander woke to find that the Easter Bunny had been here and had hidden eggs and baskets. The Bunny had left some foam alphabet puzzles on the table and then the individual letters were hidden all over in plastic eggs. Xander was a little confused by the big letters and little letters (new concept– all his other letter toys are all capitals) but he had fun finding them and trying to put them in the puzzle.
Now where does this letter go?
We had a great morning and Xander had fun finding all the eggs and playing with his new toys and books (thank you to both sets of Grandparents!).
I made the Flourless Chocolate Cake today. It was an easy recipe to follow and came out great. Since we don’t eat much in the way of sweets anymore I found it a little too sweet and will probably try cutting back on the sugar next time (or use a darker chocolate). Xander inhaled his piece even though it was still pretty hot and he usually won’t eat anything until they’re lukewarm. After each bit he’d say “hot” and then “yummy”, it was really cute. While this recipe isn’t Primal it is grain/glutenÂ free and I’m sure I’ll be using it again.
Here’s a photo of the spaghetti I made last week, it had meatballs (not homemade but gluten free!) that were really good. This spaghetti was over spaghetti squash which I like okay but don’t love. One of the great things about going Primal was discovering zucchini noodles. I still miss pasta but I have to say that I LOVE zucchini noodles!
Xander is really in to painting right now, asks to do it every day. Unfortunately the finger paints have all been used up so we’ve been going through my stash of acrylics— acrylics stain clothing. Oops! But he’s having fun.
