I am a little out of order (on many levels) but definitely overdue for an update from Easter Sunday.
I cant take credit for the brilliance in the basket idea but this year we did something a little different. "The Bunny" had the Easter Baskets done the night before then before the first child arose, we noticed a trail was left from Eva's room to the baskets. I guess he thought she may not be able to find them. It was a hit when Eva's got to use the marshmellows to get to the goodies the Easter Bunny left for them.
Then we enjoyed a great service at Fellowship followed by lunch with our best friends, the Ellemans at Springdale Country Club. We've done this before and its a great tradition for both the parents and the kids. A tad windy so the egg hunt was a mess and being the competitive one, I was frustrated by the big kids being with the little ones. Talk about putting you in your place, my sweet Eva was just thrilled to run around the open field and you should have seen the smile on Eva's face when she found the one egg she added to her basket.
Naps, playtime and egg dying wrapped up what was a wonderful Easter Sunday! He is Risen indeed!
