Happy Easter!

My kids are at their third Easter Egg hunt today, with one more tomorrow. Target tempted me with their great Easter section, so they also have an Easter basket this year full of goodies.

If this holds, they are going to love Easter almost as much as Christmas.

In all seriousness, Kayden made Resurrection Eggs in school, and it is one of my favorite preschool projects ever. Twelve plastic eggs are in an egg box, and each egg holds something that represents a part of the death and resurrection of Christ. For example, there is a flower for the Garden of Gethsemane (try saying that when you are five), a cross, a sponge representing the vinegar, a sword, etc.

We have hauled that box all over town showing grandparents and aunts. He is so proud of it. I love it when he gets to the last {empty} egg. He always gets a great big smile on his face and says "Ah-ha! He is not here!"

As you go to celebrate tomorrow, may you also feel blessed by the true meaning of Easter!

"He is not here, He has risen!" Mark 16:6
