In just a few weeks, the three of us will be together for a week of spring break and Easter fun in Charlottesville, VA area with our parents. The three of us, our hubs, our kids and our parents. No easy feat. And I promise that we will take pictures of us to post on our dear ol' blog.

And we will most definitely be making our mom's Easter Eggs. 'Cause nothing says swim suit season is coming like sugar. Almost.
They are delish. Here's the recipe:
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
6 (yes, SIX) cups sifted confectioners sugar
8 squares semi-sweet chocolate
Cream butter, salt & vanilla. Blend in milk until smooth. Add sugar, blending after each addition until mixture becomes smooth, but not sticky. Mold into egg shapes. Place on wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill several hours. Dip in melted chocolate. Mom always used a fondue pot and large fork. Another way to do it is to melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over boiling water. And let harden in fridge.
