I love Easter. I love blessing my children with small tokens of our love on Easter. They don't quite grasp the concept of why we celebrate Easter; therefore, we do the whole Easter Bunny thing. We do make a concious effort to explain to them in ways they can understand about the true meaning of Easter, but when you have a six year old that thinks death is a final thing and is scared of "ghosts", it's hard telling her about the resurrection without her telling me that I'm lying about ghosts (don't you just love that extremely long run-on sentence?). I tell her that Jesus isn't a ghost, that he really came back, but then she asks why she can't see him. It's a little frustrating for us both, but she'll come to the realization when she's ready.
Easter morning. Kinsley is posing while Katie is wiping the sleep from her eyes.
So sweet! She got Wreck It Ralph. So loves that movie. It was her first movie theatre experience. She has watched it a hundred times since we got it on DVD.
She has been asking for Lego Friends for some time now. She was thrilled to finally get some.
She got Annie from the big bunny. She looked at it and said, "What in the world is this?" Time to educate the youth of today about a "hard-knock life."
I had to break out my Lego building skills.
Never again will I pay $10 for a box of Legos. This is what you get with the Lego Friends.
That is not $10 worth of product. Wow!
They were ready to take off!
And they're off!
"Um, Momma. My feet are so dirty!"
This picture will not post correctly, but I wanted to share it anyway. We sat outside on the back steps and I read the story while the girls ate their eggs.
After all of our early morning Easter activities, we get dressed and head to church.
