Happy Birthday Ashlan!!!

Today my baby turns 7. How can she be 7 already? I'm not that old. She got a new outfit to wear to school today, along with a birthday badge. She is super excited that today was the 1st day back to school from their Easter break. (Last year her birthday landed during Easter break.) We took her out for her birthday dinner last night. She picked Papacitos and ordered the camerones (cheese filled, bacon wrapped shrimp)! Boy does she love those!!!! She is very excited to have gymnastics tonight, so they will sing happy birthday to her!!!

I really wanted to find some baby pics of her, but they are on the old computer, which is not set up yet. Sorry!

Silk Tie Easter Eggs

I saw on a blog how to dye Easter Eggs using Silk ties, so I decided to try it this year. The kids are getting older and get a little bored with the normal dying methods. Here are the results:

We started with old 100% silk ties from thrift stores.

Kayleigh with one of her eggs.

Cameron with one of his eggs.

Ashlan with one of her eggs.

Here are the finished eggs. Some didn't do so well, but most of them are beautiful!! We will be doing this next year!!!
