EASTER FUN

Easter has always been difficult at our home.

Keith leaves for church on Sunday mornings before the boys even wake up, which makes getting everyone ready for church very challenging.
And Easter Sunday is the worst.

I usually spend Easter Sunday morning looking through Easter baskets with the boys, hunting Easter eggs with them that the Easter bunny left around the house, then trying to get them focused, dressed, and to church. ON TIME.

So, the last couple of years, we have decided to reclaim our Easter Sunday morning. We do all of our Easter 'stuff' on the Saturday before Easter, which has worked out so much better for our family. The Easter bunny comes to our house on Saturday, which allows Keith to be part of the fun. The boys can take their time looking through their baskets, playing with their toys, eating their candy, and the added bonus is that we don't have to rush around to be some where.

Here are a few pictures of our Easter fun today...

We also made these adorable Easter favors today.
We made three different sizes of Bunny Tails and I love how they turned out.




With all the 'bunny stuff' out of the way, we can spend Saturday evening talking to them about the true meaning of Easter, about Jesus dying for us on the cross and about Him rising from the dead three days later. We can help them get excited about Sunday morning, and it's not because the bunny is coming, it's because we get to worship our risen Savior.

"He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen.
Come, see where his body was lying."
{Matthew 28:6}
