We did have a lovely Easter. The day was even more low key than I had first thought. As it turned out we didn't even make it to church on a account of David and Annabelle having come down with a rip-roaring cold and just not feeling up to going much of anywhere. So we cuddled most of the day, read the story of Jesus resurrection in all four gospels which was really nice, ate this really yummy carrot cake, and played lots of ring-around-the-rosy. It mostly poured all day long, so we ended up picnicking on our living room floor, which was super fun anyway. And in between the rain drops we did get a chance to fly the kite and run around the yard in our rain boots.
We did our little egg hunt the night before. It was so much fun to watch Annabelle tromp around the yard in a state of absolute glee. David would probably tell you it was a toss up on who was more excited...Annabelle, squealing every time she spotted the next one or me looking on happily as she hunted down those 5 eggs.
Once the sugar high had subsided, and after we had whisked her off to bed, I stayed up till midnight to play. Okay, so besides being fun, dyeing eggs is harder and messier than it looks.
It was just the perfect, cozy, together sort of day to remember the greatness of Jesus love for us.
Hope yours was equally wonderful.
