Easter Eggs

Happy Holy Week!

This time of the week is a little somber; remembering the journey Jesus took to get to the cross. But there is joy and celebration remembering His path doesn't end there. If you don't have a church service to attend this weekend I'd love to have you come with me to Hillside in Rancho. Let me know if you're interested and I will share more information!

Holiday's are a fun and chaotic time in my family. Trying to fit all the gatherings in one day takes some serious coordination and communication. Food, sweet treats, decorations, games, family, friends, stories about Jesus - there are so many wonderful things I love about Easter! The tradition of hunting Easter eggs has long since passed {the not-so-subtle hints from the matriarch's indicating they'd appreciate grandkids to hide eggs for have become much more frequent} but we still make sure to dye a special batch.

Pinterest is a wonderful place! {Needless to say} Every once in a while I come across something I think I can actually pull off. After seeing Sandeea Cocina's blog post here, I sent a link to my grandma and we just had to try it! I've got a pretty solid 50/50 average between Pinterest wins and Pinstrocities. 

This seemed relatively easy - plus it was a good excuse to spend time with grammy. :) 

So cute and so easy!

…hard boil eggs...

… egg whites and paint brushes...

…wrap in festive napkins and brush with egg whites...

…ta da!...

…these were still wet and delicate - but they dry firm...

Happy Easter. He has risen!
