Happy Easter!!

I always think of Christmas as the big religious holiday, the main event if you will. But this Easter I've really been thinking about the true meaning of this holiday and I'm just in awe! What an amazing God!! Just imagining that day and how the people of Christ rejoiced when they learned of his resurrection! What a great day that must have been! =)

I'm very determined to teach my kids the true meaning of each religious holiday instead of just focusing on Santa or the Easter Bunny. Of course I love those parts too and they will be a huge part of our celebrations but I want to read my kids the stories from the Bible and really make sure they know why we have these special holidays. Keaton is of course a little young to understand and he just thinks it's cool that he gets to look for eggs and throw them in his basket! =) We did take him to church with us this morning and he did great! He even got some compliments from people around us about what a good boy he was.

Keaton had 3 egg hunts this year. One with a playgroup earlier in the week, one yesterday at my sisters house with his cousins, and then one today at Kyle's brothers house. He had a blast at all of them and got some yummy candy and snacks! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! God bless yall!!
