Our Family Motto

We, the Peterson Family:

Promise to be honest in all we do and say,

Stand tall and righteous throughout each day.

Serve around the world and in our home,

Give thanks for blessings we’ve been shown.

We’ll work as a team with joy and love,

And honor our Heavenly Father above.

Color Eggs

This Easter tradition dates back to ancient times, when Egyptians and Persians traded decorated eggs at the beginning of spring to celebrate fertility.


· Toothpicks

· Liquid Or Paste Food Coloring

· Metal Spoons

· White Vinegar

· Cups

· White Hard-boiled Eggs

· Kitchen Knives

· Water

· Metal Tongs

· Empty Paper Towel Rolls

1. Set out a cup or bowl for each color. They must be deep enough to accommodate eggs.

2. Cut an empty paper towel roll into sections; you'll set your finished eggs on them to dry.

3. Scoop a gob of paste-type food coloring (found in the cake decorating section of craft stores) out of the container with a toothpick.

4. Stir it into a cup or bowl with 1 c. very hot water until it's dissolved.

5. Add 1/4 c. white vinegar.

6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for the various colors.

7. Dip white hard-boiled eggs into the bowls using a metal spoon or tongs.

8. Place the dyed eggs on the egg holders to dry.
