Pictures of Our Easter

We love to celebrate in our home and, therefore, even the smallest of holidays gets a bit of fanfare - I want my kids to grow up with the habit of taking time to rejoice and be thankful.  Easter, however, is no small holiday for us, but rather a main one - the reason we can rejoice. 

 “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.  Romans 10: 8-10

We started the day by celebrating at our church and then headed to Maca and Papa's for a delicious meal, baskets full of goodies, and an egg hunt.

we assigned each of the kids a color  (big buddy: blue, mini man: green, little lady: pink/purple) and gave them
an empty egg carton to store their eggs in so they could easily tell when they had found all 12. 

some eggs required a bit of work to get to

but boys don't seem to mind 

because i'm weird & anal me, their baskets and egg colors matched
