easter

We had a great holiday weekend with my family!  First, the girls went to a local church’s egg hunt on Saturday.

Next, their aunt Jessica let them do their own make-up (and hers!)

Then, the kids got to open their Christmas presents Easter baskets from Grandma.

Then we ate a pre-Easter dinner with my whole family.

Then Ella ate her hollow chocolate bunny like this.

We made Resurrection cookies next. (I really recommend this activity!)

The girls dyed eggs.  And Ella dyed her hand.

an easter story

Poor Asher.   Mommy is at it again.

Oh well, it could be worse.

I have been challenged this year to look for ways to make the true significance of Easter a reality to my children. *Believe it or not, bunnies can be used to bring a greater understanding of the message of Easter.
Use a stuffed bunny rabbit to teach some of the characteristics of Jesus that we should all try to have.
Real Easter bunnies:
are white as snow because Jesus takes all sin away (Isaiah 1:18b)
are gentle, kind-hearted and forgiving (Eph. 4:32)
have big ears that are quick to listen (James 1:19)
have big eyes to look carefully and choose what is good (1 Thes. 5:21)
have no voice for complaining or arguing (Phil. 2:13)
are quiet in prayer, but hop with thanksgiving and rejoicing (1 Thes. 5:21)
have big feet to go tell others about Jesus so they can be like Easter bunnies, too (Matthew 28:19-20)
eat what is healthy by filling up on God’s word every day (Psalm 119:11)
