The goal of this post is to capture a memory from the past week, either with a camera, words, or both.  Time passes in the blink of an eye and this will create a collection of treasured memories from throughout the year.

My Snapshot(s)

This weekend was all about Easter, and besides celebrating the empty tomb and enjoying the adorable artwork adorning our walls, it was an occasion to really see what a difference a year makes in the life of our little one.

We knew we wanted to keep Gv's few Easter basket treats under $5, especially when we discovered that Grammy and Grandpa Bunny had left behind a small surprise for our little chick after their last visit.  I dyed half a dozen eggs with onion skins to turn them a brilliant rusty red color and then we hid those along with a few plastic eggs we'd gotten from our co‐op's hunt earlier that week.  Gv is really into puzzles at the moment, so we picked up these foam letters and numbers for a small gift.

So we tell Gv that we're heading outside to hunt for eggs and what's the first thing she does?  Race over to our citrus trees and start collecting all the "eggs" that had fallen off!

She was quite proud of all her "finds," but we couldn't stop laughing at how she stumbled about under the weight of all those oranges and grapefruit!

She finally  moved on to discovering the actual eggs we'd hidden around the yard didn't I tell you the rusty red eggs I dyed were gorgeous?  All I did was boil the papery onion skins (Gv peeled them) for about 15 minutes, then I added 3 Tablespoons of plain old vinegar and let the eggs sit in the pot in the fridge overnight.  So easy!

I hope you all enjoyed a blessed day and beautiful weather like we did.  Happy Easter!
