Last weekend was beautiful. We planned to do lots and have lots of fun. But poor Sue’s belly had other plans for us. Late on Good Friday she got sick, very, very sick. The next three days were more of the same. My little 2 year old is full of energy most of the time, but last weekend she did not move more than 3 feet from her little nest on the living room floor. So all plans go delayed, including any thoughts for Easter. I am so glad that several family members had sent the girls fun Easter gifts the week before and we had the girls open them when they arrived, as there was not much fun to be had during the actual weekend.
So this weekend was Easter for us.
We have not been to church in about a month due to illness, and I did not make it today because of not feeling well, but the girls got all dolled up and headed out with daddy. I loved having Caitlyn tell me, when they got home, that her Sunday School picture was of Jesus going back to Heaven. It is wonderful to have them learning these Bible truths we hold so dear.
After calling granny and papa and grandma on skype, we headed out to do our Easter Egg hunt. We started with daddy doing a great job telling them about Easter being fun but also about Jesus coming to earth to teach us and then going back to heaven. Then we headed outside.
First, they found their baskets. Wow, where did those come from?
And then those fun eggs!
In addition to their eggs, they found a Veggie Tales video teaching about Easter and a special book. Sue’s is a collection of Bible stories and Caitlyn’s is a book explaining we do lots of fun things for Easter, but Jesus is the real reason we celebrate.
Then Sue again showed her belly is much better than it has been, as she dug into some of her candy.Survive til you Thrive!
