Easter Recap


I hope your week is off to a great start. Before we get too far into the week, I wanted to recap our Easter weekend.

On Saturday morning, I hardboiled the eggs, and then the kids decorated them later in the afternoon. This is the second or third year that I was pretty “hands off” with this activity.

I bought the regular egg dyeing kit, but I also picked up a “marbled” one that was easy (you just add vegetable oil to the cup with the water and vinegar), and the kids had fun decorating.

I always tell them if I wasn’t the only one who eats hardboiled eggs, I’d boil more for them to decorate! haha

(And things like egg salad, etc. that I could make with a bunch are a “hard no” for me!)

This is one of those traditions that I never know how many years it will last, but I’m pretty sure my brother and I decorated eggs even in high school. It’s just something fun to do.

I think they turned out great:

Easter morning, I was the first one up, so I got out the goodies. I think the Easter Bunny hit a homerun this year πŸ˜‰

The kids did seem to like what they received.

This meme made me laugh…

The kids did find the eggs in about three minutes! There’s only so many places you can hide them in the kitchen / living room area.

Saturday night, I prepped Andrea’s Sausage Square Breakfast Casserole, so all I had to do was bake it Sunday morning.

This was a hit! I will definitely make it again soon…maybe even for dinner one night.

We just kept it simple and had fruit as a side.

Then, it was time to go to church. The weather was absolutely beautiful on Sunday.

The kids obliged for a photo…

…and thanks to our friends, we got a family photo which I always appreciate.

After church, we quickly went home, changed clothes and headed to Elizabethtown to see Trav’s family. His aunt usually hosts Thanksgiving and Easter, and Travis has a huge family. There were 61 family members at Easter, and we were missing a few who are usually there. There’d be over 100 people if everyone showed up!

I had a bit of a headache most of the day, so I appreciated that Travis did the driving. Once we got home, it was time to get organized for back to school.

What are your favorite Easter traditions?

  1. I agree about the eggs. I didn’t do them this year. I think we did them last year, though. I’m the only one who eats them unless I made deviled eggs. Most of us like those.
    Hadley’s green dress is so pretty!
    It was gorgeous weather!

    1. Deviled eggs is another β€œno” for me πŸ˜† her dress is from target! I did a last minute curbside pick up of a couple, and I’m glad she found one she loved. (& will wear again)


  2. Sorry you had a headache; but it looks like you had a really wonderful Easter. I miss dying eggs– each year I say I’m going to dye them myself but I never do. Somehow without the boys it’s just not as much fun.

  3. So funny about the eggs because I typically am the only one who ends up eating them after- my hubby might have 1/2 and the girls may have one but that is it. We love egg coloring and I agree- the kids will definitely still be doing this in high school and hopefully college. Heck my mom still comes over and we all color them together and make bunny breads and Easter cookies too- that is our big tradition on Holy Saturday every year πŸ™‚

  4. I like that idea with the oil in the dye, we will try that next year! I’ve been eating a lot of egg salad sandwiches over here. I also blew out the inside of three eggs to use in a cake, it was a lot harder than I remember it being when I was little, but at least it meant fewer hard boiled ones.
