Before I get to our low-key Easter celebration (in a separate post), I wanted to quickly share the dumplings egg dyeing fun. Havi was a hoot. She really wanted in like Caleb and Madeline, as you can see by her facial expressions.
I forgot to take close ups of the finished eggs. Yep, a little mental mess up. Anyway, they had a lot of fun, though not always a lot of patience. lol
Well, as this Easter season approached, I started thinking about our family traditions for this holiday: we go to church on Good Friday, dye eggs, church on Easter Sunday, and egg hunt. But to me, it still seemed like something was missing. Well, I read on a family blog I follow about their new tradition that involves giving each child an egg with a bible verse in it that the parents will pray over the child for the coming year. I loved that idea. And so, we picked verses for the dumplings and placed them in an egg in their baskets. There is still more I want to do together as a family to make our Easter celebration more Christ-filled and meaningful, like making resurrection rolls, for starters. Anyway, I can't wait to see what we end up incorporating into our celebration next year. I thought the bible verses this year was a good start in the right direction though.
Next up...church, the egg hunt and a little non-traditional Easter fun!
