Who cares that it is pouring down rain? Who cares that its not even 50 degrees out (and my phone tells me it’s 73 and sunny in Houston, TX)? Who cares that we are trying to warm our house with a blazing fire in the woodstove? My calendar tells me it’s spring!

I have survived another winter.

egg hunt, large familyIn keeping with  tradition, we planned a little surprise for the children.

Tilly supplied us with Kool-Aid dyed eggs and Chuck provided us with Cadbury Chocolate Eggs.

Enoch braved the rain to hide the eggs. Tilly helped Apollo hunt.large family blog,  tubie blog, tube fed blog, heart defect blog

Apollo immediately ripped the wrapper off of his Cadbury Egg and started eating it!

  1. My wife typically leads our “welcome spring” holiday (Ostara in her tradition) with egg dying, a special meal, and prayers to her gods.

    Given that its 32 degrees here and snowing (which is normal. We’ll have snow through April) its hard to get excited about Spring. But I have ordered seeds from Cooks Garden to plant with my daughter. As soon as they arrive we’ll have our own little garden of seedlings until the ground thaws to welcome them.

  2. We’re celebrating the start of autumn with a cake. It’s cool here too, so we’re having an indoor day đŸ™‚

  3. How fun! We will be celebrating tomorrow. We make bird’s nests (chow mein noodles stirred into melted butterscotch chips, formed into nest shapes and filled with jelly beans) and read scriptures of new things from God’s hands. I am so very thankful our Creator has made such wonders for His creation!

  4. I always think I will do something……. I do eat a lot of those yummy Cadbury eggs though!

      We that *has* to count for something, right?

      • Yep, It counts for the extra miles I put in on the treadmill this time of year. DARN YOU CHOCOLATE EGGS!
