The kids always look forward to the egg hunt at church every year.
They were very dedicated to finding every last bit of the eggs. Each child was allowed to find 48 eggs. Yikes!! Can you imagine how much candy we came home with? 48x3...that's enough candy to last us a life time.
My niece and nephew always join us so that makes it extra special.
Evangeline was very interested in the type of eggs she found, while the others were interested in what was inside.
I'm pretty sure we didn't even count how many eggs they ended up with. Either way, it was a ton of candy.
Ari had a speaking role for the program. He memorized a verse and another little part. Then the kids sang a song.
Evangeline loves to sing and do the motions. Ari not so much...but he does it anyway.
After all of their practicing, Selah had the song and motions down as well. I think she could have gotten up there with them.
Since the weather was nice (a bit chilly still), we had a project that needed to get done. So most of our weekend was spent grading our yard near the pond so it's not so steep.
The kids love to "help". Which consisted mostly of them digging up worms.
Lincoln and I came out to a few times to check in on the progress. He was excited, can you tell?
After church we had lunch with family, then the big kids stayed with nanny while we went home to finish up our project. I'm kind of sad it worked out that way because I missed the egg hunt and coloring. I intended on doing it still with the kids later in the week but it just never got done.
But the kids had fun at nanny's.
Here they were hunting for some eggs.
Then they colored some too.
And of course had to eat the goodies inside.
Later in the week we made Resurrection Rolls. I think this is the kids favorite thing to do for Easter and it's such a good reminder of what Jesus did on Resurrection Sunday.
