Easter!

I ending up taking a lot of pictures at Easter and thought I'd subject you guys to some of 'em :) Hope you enjoy!

Everyone gathers in the kitchen to dye eggs...


...including the menfolk. :)

My mom hard at work on her Easter egg


The two of us posing with a rainbow egg that I made!


My cousin Tom is not so sure of what color his egg is going to turn out...



...but his girlfriend Valerie ends up with a purple middle finger, which she lovingly shares with all of us ;)

Some of the eggs we made!


Me posing proudly with my two eggs...a rainbow egg and my Scottish Flag egg, which I used rubber-bands to make.

Three of my favorite boys waiting for their eggs to dry...from left to right, my oldest brother Scott, my cousin Tom, and my middle older brother Jeff.


Love 'em or hate 'em, you gotta have Peeps in your Easter baskets...


Benni thinks that if he gives me those puppy dog eyes I'm gonna give him more of the eggs I found during our Egg Hunt. He's dead wrong.


Everyone shows off how many eggs they all found... my brother Scott was the official egg-hider this year, and he hid some of the eggs in the cat-boxes. EWW. From left to right: my mom, my cousin Tom, my aunt Darlyne (yes, she and my mom are identical twins), my brother Scott gloating in the background, my brother Jeff, and Tom's awesome girlfriend Valerie.

Valerie attempts to show Tom how to juggle as we wait for dessert to be served.


Benni shows off that he knows how to juggle too.


Tom and Jeff are skeptical of Benni's mad juggling skillz.


But Benni proves that he is a fantastic juggler.


Er....sorta.


Maybe we should leave the juggling to Valerie, guys?


Oooh, look, dessert! Three kinds of dessert!!

And that's an Easter wrap!

I hope you enjoyed the pictures...I'm going to be trying out something different this month so look for a post each Friday celebrating the fact that April is National Poetry Month! Since you guys seemed to like my taste in poetry I'll be sharing a few of my favorite poems with you every Friday AND plugging a few of my many favorite poet bloggers too :)


See you tomorrow, poetry and all!

Thank you for sharing the photos with us. I love your eggs and the dyed middle finger is the best!!! What a fun family Easter and Peeps are a must!!! XOXO

Juliana said...

I really wish that eggs were decorated all year round. I told John this and he thinks I just have issues, but I just love them. Why not have them any other time of year?

Great pictures!

jenn said...

Courtney said...

Robin said...

Great pictures and I loved the commentary.

What fun! I love Valerie being there... like she's a part of the family. I'd love it if I was so close to my bf's family.

Marion said...

You have such a beautiful family, Phoenix! Thanks for sharing them with us. We do egg knocking here in Louisiana. Two people get their dyed eggs and knock them together. The first one to crack loses. It's more fun than it sounds. LOL! Both of my daughters LOVE those Peeps, but I never liked marshmallows. Blessings!

I totally bailed on Easter this year, no coloring eggs no making baskets-- time to pull the plug no one seemed to mind.

Now that could not happen with Halloween!

drollgirl said...

EGGS IN THE CAT BOX?!?!? GUFFAW! that is horrendous!

OTHER THAN THAT, it looks like you had a fab easter! i think you get the most out of life, so kudos to you on that! :)

Gwen said...

Did someone find out that there were eggs in the litter box the hard way?

Irenicineri said...

What great pictures! We dyed eggs too. Takes you right back to being a kid. :)

Wine and Words said...

This was great, as our Easter was completly egg-less. Something wrong with that picture.

Lori ann said...

thank you for sharing your easter with us! we skipped it entirely this year and your photos made me realize i don't want to do that again!
i like your rainbow egg, very nice dipping there!

Purple Cow said...

What fun! We did something like this too only with a bunch of 10-year-olds and I'm still getting the paint off the walls!

Lots of fun though!

SabinePsynopsis said...

You did it all! So much fun!

Dionne said...

To this day, I still have never dyed/painted eggs. I really want to though!

Those desserts look sooo good. You know how I feel about the Sweets World. Yummmmm!

Indigo said...

It's official, I'm putting in a formal plea for your family to adopt me! Loved this! (Hugs)Indigo

Clarity said...

How lovely that you had that special time with your family, hope they're near.

Your mom and you look precious, your brother Jeff could be your twin? Except he's not. I also want to know what that lovely dessert is and those pink things you put in the baskets?

Angie Muresan said...

That looks like so much fun! We dye eggs every year as a family too, and afterwards play all sorts of games with them.
