Aunt Jenny's Egg Drop

This year I decided to do something a little different.  The kids had Friday off of school and Sabra was coming up for Easter/Conference, so we needed a party.  Rather than doing an egg hunt, we did an egg drop.  The kids all got a raw egg and a bunch of odds and ends and wrapped up their eggs in order to protect them from a nasty fall.  The idea was to hang out outside and drop the eggs and see whose would survive.  Unfortunately, it rained.  So, we wrapped our eggs inside and set up the ladder under the eaves in the backyard.  The kids had a great time!  At first I thought we should all do one and then all go together in the backyard to watch them drop.  Then eggs started breaking.  So, as soon as you prepared your egg, you could go outside and drop it.

Here are the kids wrapping up their eggs. Empty plastic bottles were the hot item.

I believe that Ryan was the first one done. His egg broke before he got outside...

Everyone got a package of peeps from me for participating.  

Meanwhile, Aunt Shannon put Lily to sleep.  

After dropping eggs, the kids decorated Easter cookies.
Eliza put a ridiculous amount of sprinkles on her cookie.  Then she ate the ridiculous amount of sprinkles and left the cookie.  It was so gross and funny!!
I couldn't get Allison to smile at me, but she did let me take this picture.  She liked the cookies.  

Eliza was dyed pink.  Too cute!!
