As we were packing I was trying to think about special things that I wanted to do with Ella while we were here.... one was decorating eggs, since that is a family tradition we do each year the weekend of Easter (which by the way Snyder family - we really missed the fun and of course the snacks). Below are a few pictures from our decorating time at our apartment.

|Joel was testing out one of the soft boiled eggs.|
|Ella got a little bored with egg decorating, so she took Elliot the pug dog for a ride|
|Ella was making lots of swirls|

Here is my Romanian style egg that was done with an egg decorating crayon (basically just a wax crayon..... I must say I was pretty proud of myself.
|So excited with how it turned out... can't bear to think someone might eat it.|
This was definately a fun time and a tradition that is shared between our cultures... however I did learn from Alexia, the other missionary serving here from France, that they do not color eggs in France. And that concludes another egg decorating adventure.
