One of the big events is coloring Easter eggs in many ways, shapes and forms. Years ago my mother-in-law had me boil the eggs with the skins from yellow onions. The eggs turned the most gorgeous shade of bronze. What an ingenious way to color some eggs without spending tons of money.
I remember my brother and I would color our eggs with the little package of colors from the store. We would write on them with the wax crayon and dip. Then when they were dry we used the little transfers that came with the package. Totally not a Martha Stewart display, but we were very proud of our eggs.
Of course, we all would receive new outfits for Easter Sunday with little hats and gloves! Does everyone still do this? I know when my girls were home we did.
Then after church we had a great lunch and the ever popular Easter Egg Hunt!! We live in Colorado so it never failed that the weather was cold for the hunt. All the old pictures have cute little dresses hanging out of the winter coats! Dang! Well, it is still a memory.
If you didn't pick up your lily for the big day, here's one for you painted by Maria Soto Robbins:
