Sweet Daughter's interest in taking close ups isn't just limited to our faces. Here are some of her toys as seen through her camera.

A plastic cup and um... something red in the background.

Sweet Daughter Riding

While Sweet Son loves athletics, Sweet Daughter excels in every sport she tries. Here is a photo and short video of her riding on the second week back.

Why would you hold on while riding?

It's only a 9 second video, but I'm impressed. Balancing like that is difficult, but keeping your heels down while doing it is amazing to me.

Marbled Egg Decorating

Normally we decorate eggs 3-4 different ways each year. This year we were busy and ran out of time. We only decorated them one way, our favorite way. Marbled eggs using shaving cream. You need shaving cream, food coloring, a straw or stick, and eggs. We do this on aluminum foil so it is easier to clean up, but that is optional.

 Step one: Spray a lot of shaving cream on your work area.
Step two: Drop 8-10 drops each of two different colors around the surface.

Step 3: Use a straw or stick to swirl it all together.

Step 4: Place the egg on top.

Step 5: Roll the egg making sure it all gets covered.
Step 6: Let dry overnight - the longer the better.
Step 7: GENTLY pat off the excess.

You end up with beautiful marbled eggs and a nice fresh scent in the house.
