Easter-time Again.

Easter is just around the corner.  I hope we're enjoying time with our family preparing for another holiday.  Just a reminder of the purpose of Easter.  My daughter asked last week, What is Easter about anyway?  I asked her what she guessed... springtime, new baby animals, and eggs (although she wasn't sure why).  I told her that we celebrate Christ's resurrection and how he rose again.  He was dead like everything seems to die in winter and just like springtime brings new life, He lives again.  It is beautiful and wonderful.

There is a new video on with an inspiring message:

Because He Lives

In previous years I've shared some great posts.

  For more spiritual focus:  

and for some festive fun:

As far as egg decorating this year, I just did some dying from a simple kit. I had fun dipping while layering different colors in stripes (best to start with primary colors and layer on analogous colors). I found that rubber bands are a fun way to make stripes (especially the thick broccoli rubber bands).  And we had a kit that came with tattoos which are really cool and look much better than the stickers you find in most kits.

Here are a few of my beauties:

Some of them I just left in the dye cup after all the kids were done while I cleaned up.  They came out really bold with spots where the egg floated above the surface of the dye.
