Easter Weekend

A great weekend with lots of Easter activities .... {Pictured above the kids outside of our club}
{This year we tried a new way of decorating eggs ... we took the eggs out of the boiling water as soon as they were done cooking and immediately used crayons to decorate them.}

{We also made Resurrection Rolls Saturday Night}

{The kids were amazed when they found the inside of the rolls empty.}

{On Sunday we enjoyed a beautiful church service and then brunch at our club. The kids also enjoyed an Easter Egg hunt after brunch.}

{Another tradition for our family is our Resurrection Eggs. We have used them for several years now so this year I changed things up a bit and let the kids each pick a few eggs from the carton and explain to us what the item they were holding represented in the Easter story.}

WOW, I love the idea of using crayons to decorate the Easter eggs. i will have to try that next year. this year we just used plain old food coloring and think they came out better than using a kit.

I'm going to have to try that egg-coloring method next year. We also do Resurrection Eggs - and this year I did what you did by having my girls tell me the story. :^)
