    I stuck to my traditional Cadbury's chocolate Easter egg, though they are getting harder to find in my area ;-)

    Not only did we not color eggs but believe it or not NO CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!!!!
    I'm off sweets, my oldest son doesn't do sweets, I sent my middle son chocolate bunnies, and youngest son doesn't do chocolate. My DH is also watching his weight.
    I know, we're weird!! hahaha

    Nope Publix does a dozen for me! I hosted the dinner after church grandson got a basket with a little candy and swim shorts and t shirts. We live in Florida so that's his "Uniform" as soon as school's out.

    Nope. My grands are 16 and 18 and live out of town. I missed dying eggs though. It has been several years for me.

    I dyed about 2 1/2 dozen. 1 dz brown & the rest white. Had fun with the colors. Made the colors strong & left the eggs in a very long time. Got some really deep, earthy colors. I'll have to post a picture. I'm enjoying having them in my lunch every day this week. They look so pretty I'm saving the best colors for last! :D

    No, for the first time in 56 years! I did fill 4 dozen plastic eggs so the little ones could hunt, praying the rain held off. It did, older grands hid the eggs, little guys hunted. Most were filled with money and a few pieces of candy.I had a basket at my house with Easter candies, but since we went to middle son's house for dinner, none of the kids came here. So guess who gets to eat all the peeps and Cadbury eggs? Yep!!It seemed strange not to dye eggs, but my kitchen is torn up because of remodeling and most all utinsels are packed away.Going to hard boil some today, just have to have a cold one to eat and some for egg salad.

    No, it was the first time in 41 years, my youngest GD,age 14 decided she was too old to hunt. I did watch the kids at our church hunt eggs.
