while we try to do a good job teaching the boys the true meaning of easter and to reflect on the enormity of Christ's death on the cross, we do also do some of the traditional easter things too, like dye and hunt easter eggs. i always have these great expectations of the boys really enjoying and expressing their artistic abilities when decorating the eggs...and then am quickly disappointed when they lose interest five minutes into the affair. our eggs are pretty plain and basic but we still had fun doing this together.
tomorrow is the big easter egg hunt at my parents' house, which was once my grandparents' house. the boys will be hunting and finding easter eggs in all the same places i did as a child. it just makes my heart swell. i love being a mom!
