My Easter Tradition

For 38 years I've been coloring Easter eggs the old fashioned way, with vinegar and tablets. My papa loves to color Easter eggs and since I was a wee-one he's made it a point to make this a family tradition that we have always shared with my girls.

 Our Easter eggs aren't something you'd see on the front cover of Martha Stewart, but to me they're special because they're made with love by my family in a very traditional way.  We typically get together on Good Friday to decorate. The girls even made one last year for their favorite boy....
Justin Beiber (lol).

So, what do we do with our beautiful eggs after we dye them?... We leave them for the Easter Bunny to hide for the annual Egg Hunt Extravaganza!  Brielle, my oldest, has learned the hard way to steer clear  of her little sisters during the hunt, because it's a winner takes all filled with laughter and giggles.

Around Easter Time, we have an annual visitor.  This Mother Goose has nested on my parents boat, and this time she has twins.  One of her unborn babies is warm and cozy under a feathery blanket and the other is kept warm in the crook of her mother's neck. The Father forages for her daily and makes sure his three loves are safe and sound. It's so sweet to watch... especially for my girls.

I'm so looking forward to spending the next 3 days enjoying my family.  I wish you all a very Happy Easter.  May it be filled with love, family and life long traditions.  Blessings!!
