Happy Easter

Happy Easter! Dying eggs has been a big tradition for my family. Usually we each dye 1 dozen. That means 7 dozen to hide and eat. Funny, my first year in Iowa I bought eggs to dye with Abe. We didn't get to it and his sisters beat me to it. I felt bad that I didn't get to dye them slightly but they blew out the eggs and decorated only the shells. I was mortified. This is not how we celebrate Easter! That meant no hardboiled eggs with season salt, no deviled eggs, no egg salad sandwiches. I cried. Easter was ruined. My poor roommate offered here 3 eggs in the fridge to me. Makes me laugh now. This year it didn't seem like such a big deal. I must have been pretty homesick. I never knew eggs = Easter to me before that.

I posted these pictures to remind myself that even though we had a light layer of snow this morning (Happy Easter and Spring!) it isn't nearly as bad as it was. Maybe spring is coming, after all. I sure hope so!

Easter = eggs for me too. :) I remember dying eggs together with Mark our first Easter. It turned into a BYU-Utah war on the eggs, but it was fun. I took pictures of each egg because they were so creative. What good memories!

With the new baby and with Mark's work schedule, this year we only really had time to dip the eggs in the dye, but at least we have Easter eggs!
