Easter 2016

Sooo excited to dye Easter eggs she can hardly contain herself!


Last year we celebrated a simplified Easter on vacation in Northern France.  That was fantastic. But this year we returned to a few traditions we ignored last year and the kiddos were happy.

We did this egg dying kit where you put a few drops of dye on the egg and then rub it around and let them air dry.  That's why the kids have baggies on their hands.  The eggs turned out looking sort of marbled and it was fun for a change from our usual egg dipping mess.

The boys tired of it fairly quickly, but Charlotte stayed until every last egg met her standards.

Then it was off to bed so the Easter Bunny could come.

Easter Sunday was a serious sugar fest!  We sure do like chocolate around here.

After sugar rush number one, we went to church and enjoyed hearing the children sing When He Comes Again (here is a HOOT of a version performed by little Jimmy Osmond for your enjoyment) and focused on the Savior's atoning sacrifice for us. After church I made a traditional Easter dinner and we had some company over to feast and play a board game with us.  Then it was finally time for sugar rush number two, as we decorated the carrot cake/ bunny cake.  Why is the bunny in a box?  Because I didn't have a tray large enough, and it was the simplest solution.

They do seem to be getting better at this cake decorating thing!

All in all, it was a simple Easter at home, with a little something for everyone in our family to enjoy, and we had a lovely day together.
