Resurrection Sunday

Happy Easter!!!


Last night we dyed eggs. I thought we had a box of Easter egg dyes from the States stashed away somewhere, but it was nowhere to be found when I went to get it. So we had to improvise. We googled..."How to dye eggs with food coloring". Found some instructions and gave it a go. They turned out really well...especially considering we started with brown eggs. We also made a batch of sugar cookies in the the cross shape or as Seth thought...an airplane shape.

Paul tried the colored water when it was his turn giving him some bright red lips...

The finished products...


We had a little egg hunt for the boys this morning before church...much fun for everyone. It is kind of cool that Seth and Jason are old enough so we don't have to hide the eggs in plain sight anymore. Makes the hiding of the eggs a bit more interesting for mom and dad. They also finally got the gifts sent by my mom, which they have been begging me for since they arrived.

Here is Morgan checking out his new toys...


And a hyper-active, Easter candy buzzed Jason showing off some sugar-induced moves...

I love those gorgeous jewel-toned eggs! Much better than a packet.

Glad you had a great day!

Those eggs are beautiful. So are those boys! It sounds like you had a very nice Easter. Poor Seth, I can totally relate to the hearing loss thing. My hearing is really compromised by my allergies every year and mine is indeed from fluid behind my eardrum. It really stinks to not hear well.
