"He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be risen again.' "
The kids before church
We enjoyed our Easter holiday beginning with the early rise of our excited children. Our Easter baskets were filled with several non-candy treats, so that the kids would not be hyped on sugar before church. Our Easter service at church was wonderful this year.
After church, we came home to make eggs and bacon. However, I had forgotten to take the bacon out of the freezer, so a quick trip to Wal-Mart was in store.
After lunch, we had our Easter egg hunt amid rain showers in the yard. Much to our children's dismay, I announced that they could each pick one piece of candy and then we were dumping all the others into a community bowl.
During the afternoon, we watched the Lorax for the 4th time this weekend, it has become Caroline's new favorite movie.
We ended the evening with a delicious dinner....spiral sliced ham, twice baked potato casserole, and green beans/with feta cheese.
It was a low key holiday enjoyed as a family. Now, we are looking forward to Spring Break this coming week!
For a Savior who paid for my sins
For the fun and excitement of a holiday through the eyes of your child
For another "first" holiday as the Mom of Luke
