Good morning friends! I hope you all had a blessed & wonderful Easter. Ours wasn't a quiet day, but one filled with constant noise sounding with joy and celebration. Most of it was due to the chocolates that filled the eggs left by the Easter Bunny.
We still have a few pieces left over if anyone is interested...
and even more colorful eggs to play with. What do you do with your empty eggs? We like to keep ours and use them for scavenger hunts. Somehow we'll misplace a few and others will break, but the children enjoy playing with them year round.
We have a deal with the Easter Bunny that he doesn't go overboard with the baskets of goodies. He does a good job of picking out some fun, but small outdoor toys so the children are encouraged to enjoy the gorgeous Spring days, and we keep the children mindful about the real reason we celebrate Easter. It's not always easy for them~toys versus celebrating Jesus' resurrection~but they understand and still rejoice in it with us and our community.
There isn't anyone else we'd rather celebrate it with!
It's a week filled with occasion to rejoice, friends, and Easter was just the beginning. Stay with me as we approach Eldest's golden birthday~it's this Thursday! There are a few more golden gifts I want to share, as well as her party plans. It's been a real collaboration this year, and one we've enjoyed.
A happy Monday to you all! I'll see you very soon.
