Spring time brings renewal and rebirth – which makes it a perfect time to celebrate The Gift of Eternal Life through Jesus Christ. He has risen and beaten death for us, even though we don’t deserve the gift is ours.
One of my favorite tradition for Easter is the Easter Egg Hunt.
Every year we decorate and stuff eggs. Some years it seems we run out of time and it is easier to stuff the plastics ones – or if your really uhm out of time – you can buy the already stuffed one.
Other years we dye more eggs than we know what to do with.
So which do you prefer… Plastic or Real?
The real ones are so personal and fun to decorate. You can actually eat them if you don’t leave them out too long or lose the in the yard. You find them as you mow…eek!
The plastic ones are practical and if you lose it …well it’s plastic. And now they come in funky shapes – I’m not sure if I like these. Kids love them…but I shy away from mass market products. I love the creative side of decorating your own egg. I do tend to be more on the artisan side even thought we don’t always have the time for it..
There one other type of egg we have here in South Texas – Cascarones! These are fun and messy!
To learn how to make you own Cascarones – read this blog…make your own cascarons
So which do you use – are do yo not even mess with eggs?

I saw my first Cascarones this Easter and thought they were wonderful!
Sally, aren’t they fun! We didn’t grow up with them but now it’s not Easter without them.
Neither. We prefer chocolate Easter eggs with marsh mellows or snickers or something on the inside.
Yes – I approve of the chocolate eggs…Should have added those and Sugar eggs – My mother use to decorated those too.
Foil-wrapped chocolate eggs all the way! But decorating the real ones is lots of fun, so they come in a close second.
LOL Yes! I have seen the error of my ways and chocolate eggs should have been on the list. 😀
