Easter Celebration



We had another wonderful Easter celebration this year!


While Scott was working his magic in the kitchen, I was in charge of setting the table...




Some of the daffodils from the front yard made a lovely bouquet for the table.


Dan and Melinda came over and shared in our feast. It was absolutely delicious, as always! And the best part was spending time together and all the fun conversation we always have. We love them so much and are grateful to have them as our "extended family."


Scott and I had a lot of fun being creative together this year - with decorating our springtime flower cupcakes for dessert...




...and dying eggs - one of my favorite traditions from my childhood.

My family had a little custom where each of us would decorate an egg for each member of the family. We would write the person's name on it with the wax crayon and decorate it in a way we thought they would like. I made one for Scott (can you tell which one?) but I forgot to tell him about the tradition, so he didn't do one with my name on it. :(


But I picked out my favorite egg that he decorated and we decided that one could be "mine." :)


Isn't it gorgeous? My cute husband is so talented!

I think it's so perfect that Easter is in the springtime. What better time of year to remember the gift of the resurrection and the atonement, when we are surrounded by the beauty of spring flowers, newborn animals and budding leaves. Everything feels fresh and new. What beautiful blessings the Savior gives us.

Hope you had a beautiful, colorful Easter!

Angela - We had a sponging kit. You apply the dye with little sponges using a stippling technique. Fun, huh?

Wow your eggs look pretty awsome. We should get together again here soon. We've just been super busy with Payton, but we need some adult time!
