Saturday morning we headed to a local church's Easter egg hunt. I loved going to a church related one because they took the time to explain the story of Easter instead of just- here's a bunny and some eggs, go get candy. Of course Maddie was slightly more interested in the Lollipops, Skittles and Goldfish dispersed in the field (all of which top her Favorites chart...it's like they knew we were coming), but she will always be told about the TRUE meaning of Easter. We met up with some friends, but the two little ones were far too interested in the candy than each other.
Our second Easter egg hunt of the day was later that afternoon at the local park. This time Maddie got to practice with "real" Easter eggs instead of just picking candy up off the ground- which I'm not sure was very sanitary and we possibly should not have eaten it...oh well, let's not pretend, it didn't really bother us. I mean come on, it's candy we're talking about!!
The next day was EASTER! Maddie was so good in church, and of course looked absolutely adorable in her Easter dress!
Oh, and just to throw in a little yumminess- here is the food I brought to the family lunch! I'm not much for cooking, but I love the chance to bring crafts and food together!!
After lunch, we finally had the opportunity to give Maddie her Easter basket. In following tradition from my side of the family, I hid her basket and had her go find it. Smarty Pants found it pretty quick, and hearing her laughter at its discovery was simply adorable!
So that was our weekend. To say we are blessed would be the understatment of the year. God has given us so much, but most importantly He gave us His Son. I could never praise or thank Him enough for my beautiful family. He truly is an AWESOME God!
