Easter prep

I don't know why I love painting Easter eggs so much.  

I mean, they are a lot of work, and we make a big mess.  But there's something about it I just love.  

Maybe it's just the creative juices that get me going.   Love Lucy's concentration on her "creativity."

Maybe it's because it's a time to "stop time" and be all together.
...even with my busy, never-around-these-days teenagers.

 (like that orange hair streak?)


I don't know but I just love it.

Scouring Pinterest for ideas...


We did our "Easter Story Cookies" again this year.

Here's Claire beating the pecans...And Lu reading about the first Easter:

For some reason these puppies didn't work out so hot this year.  We never got the stiff peaks with those egg whites.
...And they were flat as pancakes in the morning, but it was fun to go through all the scriptural references together anyway and seal them in our "tomb" overnight.


The Easter Bunny found us and did his traditional string-leading-from-the-beds-to-the-Easter-baskets dealio.
...not 'til 1:30 am, but he did come :)

  9. New kitchen is beautiful. We also just moved, and have a baby, and I decided to let some traditions pass this year. The kids asked about them and in the end I just feel regret. Wish I had put forth the effort. Memories are soooo worth the pain!
