Our Easter Sunday seems like a whirlwind! Emma and I had to be at church at 9:00 to help watch children for the 9:00 service so our family left for church in two different shifts. Here is Emma seeing her Easter basket before church. She was SO tired! She got a pink soccer ball, socker socks, Peeps, and some Dora treats.
Foster and Emma’s Easter baskets. Foster got a stuffed monkey, some peeps, some soft balls, and some Teddy Grahams. His favorite treat was the Teddy Grahams- this boy loves to eat!
This was a very strange Easter Sunday- it rained the entire day which made for a bad hair day for both Mommy and Emma!
However, the message of the day rang true to me more than ever… JESUS LIVES. Our pastor’s sermon was excellent… “Do you love Jesus, or the idea of loving Jesus?” Easter is a fantastic time for Restoration with Jesus. A great time to renew your faith. I also find that teaching Emma the story of Easter has given me an even deeper appreciate for what Christ did for me. I’m so grateful for my Savior.
Foster, Nana, and Emma after church on Sunday. Nana bought Emma’s Easter dress and sweater for her- thank you so much Nana!
Foster got so many great treats for Nana, Aunt Judy, and Haley and Sara. Here is checking out his Bumble Bee puppet book from Judy- he squealed every time he read it!
Emma checking out Uncle Boom’s candy.

Uncle Ron and Foster- Foster was so tired- he did not have any sort of a nap on Easter!
Haley, Emma, and Judy- Emma just adores Haley and Judy!
Foster kept laying his head and Brandon to cuddle- he was so tired!
Easter eggs that Mommy and Jamey dyed on Saturday night. We intended for Aubrey and Emma to help us but we ended up dying 3 dozen eggs by ourselves!
Just had to include this picture… I had about 100 plastic eggs left over from a MOPS project that we did at church. Foster LOVED playing with the eggs. He loved taking them out of the red basket and putting them in the laundry basket. He played with them for hours! I would usually bring them out when I was trying to prepare dinner and the occupied him for a long time. I think I may leave these out until next Easter!
These are the Resurrection Eggs that we made at MOPS- this is a fun way to teach Preschoolers about the Easter Story. Each egg has a Bible verse and symbol to explain that verse. You open one egg per day for the 12 days leading up to Easter. Emma LOVED this!
