Easter is Almost Here

My nieces with their Easter Eggs
Easter has long been my favorite holiday of the year. Even as a kid I enjoyed it more than Christmas and Thanksgiving. I'm sure it had something to do with all the fantastic Easter candy, but I'm certain it was more than that. For some inexplicable reason, the whole process of coloring Easter Eggs was very special to me. That's why watching my two nieces color their own Easter Eggs was such a thrill for me.
As youngsters they are just now developing their own traditions and creating new memories. It was great to share that experience with them both. We colored about 30 eggs this year, which is a heck of a lot of eggs. Some were hard-boiled, and some were hollowed-out. Curious which method you used in your home--feel free to weigh in on that. So here are their two baskets, with decorated eggs:

 Have you colored your Easter Eggs yet?

Easter is a favorite for us. We colored eggs -- I used a mixture of crayons and dye, and the candy is the best! And the egg hunts with my brother, A. (special smile)

With us now living on the west coast, we'll be missing Easter with hubby's girls and their mom's family (in TN). I'm kinda sad about that. We were always in charge of cooking the lamb. Grammie makes baskets and sends the kids on a treasure hunt, and we all just and hang together as a family.

i like to color eggs too but my kids are all grown and don't want to do it any more. it's not very fun to dye them all alone. i need some little kids. though i did find a sewing pattern and i have some nice fabrics. maybe i will sew some easter eggs.

This past Wednesday evening, with my daughter's ex-husband visiting here with the grandkids, she and he and the kids dyed Easter eggs -3 dozen of 'em to be exact! And yes, you're so right to say that's a whole lot of eggs! She and I are going to be eating eggs till the cows come home because the kids won't touch 'em when it comes time to dig in and eat! Strange taste buds is all I can say there, ya know! Happy Easter, Rick!
