I LOVE Easter! Not because of the candy or the bunny, but because of what the holiday celebrates, our risen Savior! I’m one of the worship leaders at our church, so we always have Jesus on our lips in this house! But especially at Easter. Turner is obsessed with talking about Jesus and “the cross where Jesus died” which is so cute and disturbing all at the same time. How does one talk to a four year old about God coming to earth as a man, being brutally beaten, and being hung on the cross to suffer an excruciating death, and then defeating death by rising from the grave?? The answer is I don’t know. But I talk to him as if he gets it. And maybe he does?
The weekend was spent celebrating Jesus, spending time together, and of course hunting for eggs! This is the first year Turner was psyched about hunting for Easter eggs. We had a neighborhood hunt on Saturday which was at the park across from our house. They let the little kids hunt first and then unleashed the bigger kids. I thought that was a great idea so the little guys at least had a chance!
While Turner hunted for every last egg, Gracie found a spot to sit and collect rocks in her super cool basket.
Sunday, after church, we headed to my mom’s for an amazing dinner with the family and yet another Easter egg hunt!
There’s nothing better than celebrating Jesus with our babies! They’re at an age where the holidays are so much more meaningful. I love every second of it! I am feeling beyond blessed! Happy Easter. He is risen!
