One of my favorite parts of cooking and dyeing eggs for Easter is getting to eat them afterwards. I love hard-boiled eggs with salt and pepper, and I especially love egg salad sandwiches.
This year, though, for some reason, I am having the hardest time cracking and chopping the little guys up.
It’s like they are our little friends. Friends don’t turn friends into lunch…
We had such a good time making these eggs and painting crosses with our special guest artist, DeeDee (my mom).
We love the fun traditions that we share as a family at the holidays, but the best part of Easter, by far, is celebrating the resurrection. It was a morning full of praise, the picture of new life represented in baptism, and serious reflection on the loving sacrifice our Savior made for us. It was wonderful to get to share that with my mom this year.
Don’t you love seeing all the bright, pretty colors that come out for this springtime celebration? Mom stayed with us for a week, and she had to deal with the occasional sassiness from me during that time. I can be such an egghead. (perhaps this is why I struggle with turning my new-found friends into sandwiches…) Thanks for your patience with me, Mom. We had a wonderful time, and we miss you already!
