E is for...

Easter Egg!
I have fond memories of Easter eggs at my gramma Charlotte's house when I was young. My brother, sister, mom, and I would go over a few days before and my gramma would have the egss boiled and ready. We would poke small holes in them and blow out the white and the yolk. We didn't dye them though, we drew on them. It was so interesting to see what everyone would come up with. She had markers in all sorts of colors and sizes and when we were done we had a bowel full of unique, personal, and colorful eggs! She kept many of them over the years with dates on them. I loved going over on Easter and looking back at all the drawings. These memories and egg drawings are precious to me now because Charlotte is gone and I miss her everyday! I am thankful for the memories that simple markers, eggs, and family can make!

I hope your weekend is full mamory making moments! Emma

in my place we only paint the easter eggs in red. It's some sort of tradition as jesus' blood was red... But certainly prefer the eggs you posted here!
