One of the things we did was to color Easter eggs. I bought a dye kit for the kids to use and I made a handful of natural dyes for myself. First of all, the kids love coloring eggs. They could color them everyday and not tire of the process. Jax colors one right after the other, Zander waits until they reach a lovely shade, and Adisson takes a looooong time to get his just right. Adam and I colored a few as well (all the cracked ones!) and had a great time with the kids.

So, all in all, our Easter was like most every other holiday---just the five of us. It makes me sad that we don't have the chance to spend holidays with family, but I'm always grateful for every holiday that we get to spend together---just the five of us. :)
