Happy Easter!

Here is a catch up of our Easter activities...

Saturday, we went to a pancake breakfast and Easter egg hunt at Emma's bff's church. Before the hunt they had stations you could walk through to show the things that Jesus did before he died and was resurrected. Here, Ella and Emma are serving each other food. This was after they washed each others hands. It was really neat!

This was a station where they pinned their sins on the cross so Jesus can forgive us for them. Emma and Aiden both said their sin was hitting! Uhh, yeah. Thank you, God for forgiveness!

Aiden and Rylan, bff's too!

The hunt! Aiden got more than Emma because she and Ella had to move up to the big kid hunt this year. *sniff* Needless to say, they didn't get as many this year.

The group! 2010

After the hunt on Saturday, we went to see the Easter Bunny at the mall. Dear Mall People, I think that it is so tacky that you stopped letting people take pictures with their own cameras. I am not paying $48 for pictures with a fake looking bunny with a tacky outfit. I am not even going to pay $48 for pictures with Santa, even though he is an awesome Santa, but Easter Bunny, not so much! So I hope you go bankrupt on your Easter Bunny Photography business. That is all, thank you!

So we left our letters to the Easter Bunny on the hearth and that seemed to work just fine. Emma has her Daddy's competitive egg hunting abilities and Aiden seemed to get mine. However, I did this year for the first time in 17 egg hunting battles between Matt and I, beat him!! Woo Hoo! It was a BIG day for me! Thank you, Mom! That is one of our favorite Easter activities! Hopefully, with enough therapy, Emma will forgive me for not helping her during the hunt!

I thought Emma was really going to read this. She looked at it like this for a while, but then she said, "Momma, I can't read!"

Another egg hunt - at Nanny and Papa's church.

What else can we do with these baskets?

The last Easter egg hunt for the year! :)
We are so thankful for Jesus and the hope that he gave us by dying on the cross and being resurrected! Thank you!!
