Personal Notes:
An Easter tradition in the Nowicki household. I've make this every year since marrying into this Polish family. It's fun, but it takes a full day. Watch the first and second rising. I've had some good clean ups to do over the years.

Shawna and Taylor.....you will take this over from me someday soon!!! And it's a must that you carry this on. Great Nana is watching you.
