Typically I like color for Easter but this year with black and white being all the rage on the runway, I thought it would be fun to shake things up a little and think of Easter in a different way...

Think I might have to go buy a sharpie and write my favorite scriptures on some eggs! Of course while I am out, l'll also buy color kits too...we love to color eggs! I get as much enjoyment out of decorating eggs as my kids do. At 12,15 & 22, my kids are really past the "Easter basket" stage, but of course the Easter Bunny still comes on que. Instead of candy and trinkets, the basket now consists of a new swimsuit or shades. There is typically one wind up hopping bunny or something silly.
One of my boys' favorite Easter traditions is the "Flashlight Egg Hunt" my sister in law and brother have for my boys and my two nephews. They hide one money filled egg per boy, arm the boys with flashlights and a clue to help them find their eggs. The object of the hunt is to make it really hard for the boys to find the eggs, so they have to really hunt. Last year the hunt went on for hours! Typically there is one boy's egg that is harder to find than the others, so once the three have found their egg, they join forces to find the elusive egg. It is always fun to see where the eggs are hidden.
