easter prep


The girls are all about holidays
christmas, valentine's day, st. patrick's day... you name it!
the moment the retail stores brought out their easter goodies
(which was in february--no joke)
the girls would bug me "when are we decorating our eggs mama? when?!"

i almost broke down in march and had them do it then
( i can only take so much "when mama?! when?!)
but we were all able to wait until good friday to decorate our eggs
last year, we decorated our eggs with washi tape
the girls wanted to do the same thing this year too
but i also thought it would be fun to break out our paints and brushes too





i bought some wooden beads to make some necklaces 
as a part of their easter basket
they painted those too





tada!
pretty easter eggs and easter necklaces



as much fun it is to decorate easter eggs and eat chocolate until our tummies burst
it's important to remember why we are celebrating easter in the first place

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead ... 1 Peter 1:3

Have a Blessed Easter Friends!
