The eggs

4.22.2014

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!

Too bad Havi wasn't able to join in the dyeing but her pouty face is too cute :). Great idea to incorporate more religious aspects of the holiday into the basket/egg traditions. I feel like we all are losing more and more the real meanings of Christian holidays. Maybe that's why I don't make a big deal about them, in the material sense. We just spend time together as a family.

Oh I've missed your pics, so I stopped by to see how the kiddos are doing! :)

We still haven't attempted the Easter Egg dye thing.. We had a rough week leading up to Easter, so I'm playing catch up later today.

You have great light in your house!! I'm gonna have to take ours to the patio I think! LOL

Such cute pictures. I didn't dye any eggs this year because of Isaiah but I know the kids won't let me get away with it net year. I like bible verse in an egg idea.
