Easter 2021

Friday, April 16

This Easter was so special for many reasons!

First, because of what it means to me as a Christian...that Jesus conquered the grave and came to bring us LIFE! I love waking up in the morning and shouting "HE IS RISEN" and having someone else echo back "HE IS RISEN INDEED!". What a savior we have in Jesus.

Secondly, it was Avonlea's 4th birthday. While we threw her a birthday party the day before, we have a family tradition of doing breakfast in bed on her actual birthday. She requested Lucky Charms (which she has never had before, but she saw them at the grocery store one day and asked for them. That was 2 months ago and they've been sitting in our cupboard ever since haha!). She got SOOO excited when we waltzed into her room singing happy birthday, and squealed with delight opening all her presents! I grew up with this tradition, and love passing it on to my kiddos!

Thirdly, this Easter was special because it marked the first time in a year when our entire family has been together for a holiday. All my siblings and their spouses, my aunts and uncles and grandparents were able to all come. It was sunny and gorgeous outside, so we were able to celebrate amidst the gorgeous Dogwood blooms of my parents trees!

The egg hunt was a total delight for my kiddos, they got so so excited to hunt for eggs! Don't kids just add an extra sparkle to holidays? I love it!

I hope your day was lovely and beautiful and redemptive! xoxo 

{kids LOVED the egg hunt so much! We kept taking eggs out of their basket without them seeing and re-hiding them! So it went on and on! haha}
