Easter Eggs

A fun moment on Easter today as the girls colored a couple dozen of our eggs.  We don't have any white egg layers, they're all brown and green eggs, and when they're colored, they turn out the most beautiful deep shades. 

Our naturally colorful eggs
Today was a gorgeous sunny day, and I made a full on Easter meal, it was a kitchen day, full of cooking and baking.  I'm always happy to have a reason to celebrate, and the reason to celebrate today was His (Jesus) resurrection and Life, and the glory of His triumph!  We all had discussions about this as we colored eggs and cooked.  For our meal I made ham, scalloped potatoes, vegetables and homemade dinner rolls.  For dessert I made a pear and apple pie/crisp, and of course we had some ice cream to go with it.  

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

I always had the same problem with our eggs. They were all brown, and kids would be a tad bit frustrated. So we would use a wax crayon and draw every where, and than dip them in the colouring. Made for some cool designs.

Sounds like a wonderful day. The dinner and dessert sound heavenly.
