 can't believe that it is Easter already; it seems that I was packing Christmas away just the other day. Guess not. Easter is a beautiful time of the year; my tulips should be in full bloom and iris too.


We remember countless Easter eggs hunts throughout our house with our daughter. She absolutely loved searching for those plastic eggs and she always wanted a chance to hide them from me. Hiding the eggs are wonderful memories of her childhood that still warm my heart today.


Anyway, you too can make these simple eggs to share with your family and create lasting memories.
