Easter

Talk about great weather (for Utah) this weekend!! We had such a fun time coloring eggs, hunting for eggs, hiding eggs, eating eggs and waiting for the Easter Bunny to come. The boys really loved opening each egg to find fun surprises and treats. We had an a couple of egg hunts, one egg hunt was with our cousins and my Uncle Boyd filled some of the eggs with sand. Lukas said, "Hey, mine is filled with dirt!" He was a little disappointed about that. But he did get some money in one and he said he was going to save that for Disneyland. Max was so excited, he didn't know what to do. He'd collect a few eggs in his basket and then stop and take them out to hide them again. It was cute. One word he learned to say this weekend is "candy". Boy does he love that word! I'm sad we didn't get the best family shot on Sunday, but we didn't really have cute Easter outfits to show off. Easter came so early this year that I didn't even have time to find something for the boys. We were lucky the Easter Bunny even came. But sure enough he did and the boys were thrilled! Pat was too. He said the Easter Bunny never visited him when he was growing up. Sad!! We had a nice dinner with my family on Sunday. We are starting this tradition where we have the Easter Egg lesson (where you open up an egg and it has something in it that represents the Savior and his life and resurrection). It was nice to really focus on the whole reason we celebrate Easter. I am so thankful for this time of year and all that it represents.

That is is funny that your uncle fills some of the eggs with dirt. We didn't even get eggs decorated this year...it just came up too fast! I'm glad you had a nice holiday and were able to spend it with family!

I love the picture of Max holding out his Easter basket. He looks like he knows right were he's going to get his next egg. Too cute. All of the pictures are just great. It sounds like you have a wonder Easter.

I just love the Easter egg lesson idea where you put a different depiction of the Savior inside an egg. What a great idea! I'm glad your boys had fun. Max is TOO cute! I loved reading about how he would put the egg into his basket & then try to hide it again!

Fun Easter!! The pictures are great. My fav is the one of Lucas helping Max find an egg (maybe that's what they are doing!) And the dirt in the egg is too funny! I also like your Savior Eggs. We do something similar, but i think I like yours better!
