Easter, Easter And More Easter

We started the Easter festivities on Friday. We had an Easter party at our house--we dyed eggs, had an egg hunt, made resurrection rolls and played until our hearts were content.
We ended the party with a silly string fight. The kids have really made some great little friends during our "pit-stop" in Cleveland and they will definitely be missed.
We woke up on Saturday and our house had been "EGGED". There were 12 hidden eggs in the yard and the kids thought it was the best thing.
We found all the eggs and discovered that most were filled with yummy candy, our very favorite kind of eggs!
Saturday evening we headed to our family's house to do a small get-together for Easter.
They had an Easter hunt for the kids, gave them yummy Easter treats and then the kids played and the adult socialized. I'm so glad that we are close to family during our year here...it's nice to celebrate with them during the holidays!
Easter morning was the icing on the cake. The kids woke up to baskets filled with goodies, eggs hidden in the front yard and a special sprinkled donut.
We went to church, grabbed a quick lunch and then headed to the Farm Park. The weather was beautiful and we knew we wanted to take full advantage.
We finished out the day with a nice meal, made on the grill, and our afternoon outside. Our Easter, this year, wasn't as traditional as years in the past but we definitely enjoyed our time together as a family. Thankful for a Savior that died and rose again so we will have life in HIM.
