Baking with Eadie

Eadie loves to bake and help in the kitchen.  She is a little more confident than her ability, but I don't mind a helper every now and then.  She is good at measuring out the flour and mixing things together. I usually draw the line at eggs.  I will always do the eggs.

In this instance however, she assured me she had it.  She knew exactly how to crack the eggs and she wanted to give it a go.  I gave in and let her.

She was right, she knew exactly how to do it - she'd watched me many times.  She grabbed that egg, tapped it firmly on the bench and then stuck her fingers inside the shell to open it up.  PERFECT! I guess I had forgotten to explain what to do next though, because she opened it up onto the bench, and put the egg shell into our brownie mix! Too funny! We had a good laugh about it for days.

An Easter Tree

When we were in Prague we found some beautiful painted Easter eggs.  They look perfect on our Easter tree!

For our family home evening lesson last week, we cut pictures of the Saviour to hang on the tree also. It feels so lovely to be able to teach the girls the true meaning of Easter. The atonement, crucifixion and resurrection of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, make it possible for us to return to live in the presence of our Heavenly Father. Such a wonderful time of year to remember such great blessings.
