Easter

 We had a wonderful Easter this year.  We watched the Prince of Peace video (You can watch it here) on lds.org and a few more that they had online.  I love all of the media that the church has. Anyway, so we watched all of those videos leading up to Easter and talked about them with the kids.  We reviewed the story of the Resurrection.   It's fun now that the kids are a little bit older and we can have more in depth discussions with them. 

Anyway, so Easter morning we woke up and the Easter bunny had come and hid eggs all over in the backyard.  We went out bright and early in the morning and the kids found all the eggs.  Then we went to church and in the evening we had our egg bash.  These pictures are all out of order, but I'm not about to go through and reverse them all.  SO just ignore the order.  :)

 Our egg bash was held in the basement.  I love this picture because Sadie is always sitting like that like it's no big deal.  She is so flexible.  

 Zac was definitely the most excited about the egg bash.

 Riley cried after her first match because she wanted her egg to crack and it didn't.  She doesn't understand the point is to have the uncracked egg.  ha ha.

 Sadie and Zac are getting good at rolling their eggs pretty straight.

 I love this picture even though it's blurry.  You can see how excited Zac is that his egg didn't crack.  and Riley is happy too!.

 This is the congratulatory hug to Riley the Champion!

 Here she is with her winning egg.  Although the whole time she just wanted her egg to crack.  ha ha.

 Emery had a great time too.  :)


 
 We held the kids off from going outside until about 7:30 I think.  ha ha.  Sorry neighbors if we woke you up! :)

 We were waiting for daddy very patiently.

I went outside to get a picture of the kids walking out onto the deck.  I waited (in the cold!!) for a long time and then peeked my head inside to see why they weren't coming.  They were waiting for me to come back in!  ha ha..

Let the egg hunt begin!

 They found them all really quickly!


Zac wasn't scared to climb up to get the hard ones!

Riley did great too!

Then we all went inside and ate tons of candy!  I told the kids that every time they empty one of their eggs to remember how the tomb of Christ was empty because he was resurrected.  It probably went over their heads, but hopefully it sunk in a little bit.  :)
