Easter 2014 fell in the midst of a busy season for both Alex and me (finals for Alex, final paper for me).
In the morning we attended church, and after naptime did Resurrection Eggs and an Easter egg hunt.
Audrey and I had been reading the Easter story in her “Big Picture Story Bible” leading up to Easter, so we opened the Resurrection Eggs and related the objects inside to the story. She was mesmerized.
She also discovered books in hear Easter basket from Mommy and Daddy and Nonna and Poppa!
Then, it was time to hunt for eggs!
Audrey wasn’t too interested in the cheddar bunnies I put inside her eggs, but she loved opening an empty one, running up to me and excitedly telling me “It’s empty because Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose again!” I know she doesn’t know the meaning of these truths yet, but we pray they sink into her little heart as she grows older.
