So, we want to hear from you. What are your family traditions for the holidays? How will you be spending Easter this year? Or even tell us about other holiday's traditions. Do you think you'll keep these traditions as time goes on? How have your traditions changed over time? Oh - and if you have a cute scrapbook layout documenting a tradition - we'd love to see it!

I love holidays! I love the special things we do to celebrate that brings our families together, and help to build memories for our kids. Our family has a few traditions that we have incorporated over the years to make the holidays more special. Tonight we're doing our family tradition of dying Easter eggs. I think I love dying eggs as much as the kids do. I guess it's the creative side of me coming out to play. On Sunday many of those dyed eggs will be consumed and eaten at our annual family gathering at my husband's granmother's house. I'm in charge of the deviled eggs every year, and the family members are happy to eat the discolored eggs where the dye soaked through on a couple. This is also the annual grandkids egg hunt. As the grandkids are getting older, it ws discussed that this event might end this year, but we've decided to still keep it going strong - much to the delight of my almost twelve-year-old who insists she's not too old to hunt Easter Eggs, especially for the ones that have prizes inside!
