Only a Week Behind . . .

This afternoon, the boys colored Easter eggs. What's that you say? Easter was last week? I'll have you know that hard-boiled eggs are an excellent source of protein year-around, and colored eggs add a lovely touch of whimsy to the inside of the fridge, no matter what week it is! Besides, as of just a few weeks ago, we were listening to Veggie Tales' Incredible Singing Christmas Tree CD in the car (Caleb and Jonathan's choice, NOT mine, LOL), so obviously we aren't the best at celebrating holidays right where they fall on the calendar!

Now we have 18 beuatifully decorated eggs awaiting us for breakfast for the next few days. You can eat colored eggs, as long as they have been in the fridge, right? I must confess that coloring eggs was not a meaningful part of my childhood hood memories--do you remember ever doing it, Dan? So I am not up on all the ins and outs of it. Fortunately Bob's family did color eggs each year, so obviously we were meant to be together, so that our kids can have this experience, and I don't have to get messy! LOL!

If you celebrate holidays later that will save you lots of money. You can get all the decorations half the price. I already bought Easter stuff for Emily for next year. Melinda
