Our Easter started off the weekend before, when we got the box of plastic eggs down from the attic. Immediately the kids were asking, "When will we have an Easter-egg hunt?" So, that Palm Sunday afternoon we had some practice hunts with empty eggs in the back yard.
Monday morning Carly was invited to her friends Will and Luke's house to hunt some eggs.
By the time Friday rolled around, Carly's hunting skills were sharpened, and Caleb was out of school so we went to our friends Hannah and Ava's house and had another hunt!
Saturday we drove to Aledo for a family get-together with my grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. There was food, music, and -- you guessed it -- an egg hunt!! The sweetest part of the day was the music. We sat around the piano and sang worship songs about our risen Savior! I loved it. We even had my cousin Stacey via Skype on the iPad "there" with us all the way from Chile.
Then Easter Sunday was church and afterwards we had lunch at our house with my dad and stepmom, and in-laws. Naturally, after lunch the kids hunted eggs.
Monday, Carly asked me when we would get to look for eggs again. Is 5 not enough!? Good grief. I'm egg-specially glad to put those away until next year! We had an egg-cellent time, but I was eggs-hausted after all the festiviteggs. (ok, that last one was a stretch.)
