Easter egg-stravaganza 2011

In Chinese we say, Fu huo jie, Kuai le!!
FU - 复 - recover, restore
HUO - 活 - life, save
JIE - 节 - holiday, festival
KUAI LE - 快乐- happy

I love the Chinese for this - it is so packed with meaning!

Not many people understand this holiday, so its fun to share the true meaning with our friends. We also enjoy some family traditions of dying eggs, egg hunts, baskets of goodies, and also an Easter Tree (I will share more later). I had done this before as a child...so it was fun to bring new meaning to this amazing holiday together.

All dressed up for an Easter brunch and Egg-hunt in the park!

The cherry-blossoms are in full bloom!!

The girls with all their loot!

This year, we celebrated with a friend who has Mexican roots - she introduced us to Confetti Eggs!! You crack a confetti-filled egg over your loved-ones head!! This was definitely a highlight.

We ended off our day with another egg-hunt @ home and yellow peeps.
What more could you ask for?

thanks again, Nana for the yummy package!!
He is risen indeed!!
