Easter 2013

 Here is a look at our Easter weekend.


We started off with egg dyeing.  This year Daniel was more interested in helping out.



Many people dye hard boiled eggs, but we dye eggs that have an empty shell then fill them up with confetti. 


Why you ask? You'll see.



We also made our resurrection rolls again this year. 



I really enjoy making these with the kids because it helps refocus on what the true meaning of Easter actually is. We read the story and talk about Jesus while we make them. 




We started this tradition a few years ago and I believe every year they turn out better and better. 





They are not perfect but they tasted very good!



After church we headed to my parent's house to celebrate with them. we had lots of yummy food and visited with cousins.  
Then it was time for the egg hunt to begin! 
Daniel was really interested in the Easter egg hunt as long as Dad was helping him. 


The older kids were off looking for the eggs. 







See, here is what happens after the egg hunt is over with the confetti filled eggs. They are used to be cracked on each other's heads. Why? You ask. Well I'm not sure, it is just something we've always done since I was a child. I know my husband had never heard of this. His family only hunts for plastic eggs filled with candy. We do both! It took sometime for my hubby to get used to it.


The kids really enjoy chasing each other around and cracking them on each others heads. 


I hope you had a wonderful Easter!
