Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to you and your family!  I hope you have a wonderful holiday. We had a wonderful night here in preparation for Easter.  Coloring Easter eggs is one of my favorite things to do.  I especially like it when the weather is good and we can do it outside.  Outside the kids do not have any restraints on their egg design, they can make as big of a mess as they want!!  BUT, the weather this year just did not allow for it.  I decided to just give in and let the girls decorate their hearts out again, and it was worth it.  They had a great time and the eggs turned out great!

My memory of the girls decorating eggs two years ago is imprinted in my mind forever, and I do not think any Easter will be quite like that one, but this year is a close second.  If you want to see the images of my little peanuts decorating a couple of years here.   This year, we started out with our flimsy metal egg holders... then we moved on to spoons...

and we finished by using fingers! Click on the photo if you want to see the spoon a little closer! (The idea for the reflection in the spoon  came from a photographer friend of mine... check out Connie's spoon image here!)

This photo really made me laugh because her egg has finger prints on it and there is dye dripping from her hands.  By this point, I had totally given up on being clean! I think Olivia felt each egg was destined to be decorated a certain way.  She took her time and was at the table long after the rest of us had finished.  

Finally we were done!  What a great time we had.... 48 eggs were colored and the house was a mess, but again... I have memories that will last a life time.

And, we were left with 48 masterpieces!

Have a wonderful holiday.  Enjoy your family, enjoy your friends, and remember the resurrection.... He is Risen!

Great shots Sara! Love the fingerprints too, that made me laugh. 48 eggs - wow! What are you going to do with all those eggs? How fun. I think this is the first year since my kids were born that I did not do eggs! We meant to, just never did it. Yikes! This post makes me look bad. Funny spoon reflection :). Happy Easter to your family. He has risen indeed!
