A Last Look At Easter Parties

With all the celebrations leading up to Easter - I haven't had time to post some of the fun things we got to do this past weekend. One of our activities included our neighborhood Easter egg hunt.

Megan wanted to be the big girl and ride her bike to it...

Once we got there, Megan was in hog heaven with a big craft table...

And both girls jumped at the chance to express themselves with the sidewalk chalk...

Megan drew the Easter Bunny

Then.... finally - the Easter Bunny arrived. Megan was the first to run over for a huge bear hug!Even Nicole had a wave of bravery and got "close" to the big bunny.

And finally... time for the egg hunt!

And, what is an Easter party without some chocolate? Let's just say, Nicole had her fill!

Before we left, both the girls made some new friends....

Then it was time for the trek home! Rejuvinated with some candy, art, egg hunting, and a hug from the Easter Bunny.... Megan was ready to hit the road!

Nicole- how much fun did you have?

And a kiss from little sister to big sister while we were trying to get a picture of the girls in front of the final blooms of our azeleas.

So - those are some of our fun Easter memories. BUT - the best memory is Megan running around the house saying, "He is risen!" and retelling the Easter story. Egg hunts and Easter Bunnies are fun, but our hearts desire is that Megan and Nicole will understand the reason we celebrate Easter. The night before Easter, Megan was going to bed and said - Jesus rose from the dead and went to heaven to prepare a castle for me. That's right Princess!
