Hi I’m Jen- I'm one lucky lady to be married to the most wonderful man, Jason. I am a mother to three beautiful children, Grant, Norah, who was born with hydrocephalus, and Mason. I love spending my time with my family. I also like to challenge myself with new things. I'm on a constant quest to become more organized, it may never happen but it's a dream. I currently work part-time as a RN in an emergency department. I love this journey of life that I am on with God by my side, knowing that all things are possible when you Believe.

Does it really matter when you do it?

Dying eggs is something that should be done before Easter celebrations so you can enjoy their fun colors and hide them for egg hunts. While this year we didn't get around to it before Easter. Norah had her first high temperature, was sick for a few days which led to this Mommy being very worried about her baby girl. Then lots of odd shifts were worked in order for us to go to my parents' house for Easter. When all was said in done, no eggs were dyed. This was the first Easter that Grant could dye eggs, Jason and I couldn't let this pass by. We walked to the clearance aisle and found our egg dying kit and Friday night we made eleven eggs beautiful pastel colors. Yes, eleven eggs, one didn't survive the boiling process. I let Grant help with putting the eggs in the boiling water and he became a little too excited and threw it in. At least he wasn't hurt in the process.

Lessons learned by this mom include:
-make sure you cover your table with plastic or paper, or you table will look like this.

-if we do this before Easter next year, make sure it's a week before Easter Sunday, because it may take that long for the dye be removed from this kids' hands.

Grant couldn't wait to peel the shell off the egg.
