Here in Texas we have had a beautiful sunny Easter Sunday. A great day for family gatherings, egg hunts & too much food. For the kids, Easter is all about the Easter bunny and baskets of eggs filled with candy or sometimes even money. So I thought I would share a few pictures of our family Easter stories.
The two pictures on the left are my cousins children and the one on the right is one of their children with the Easter Bunny. The bottom picture is last Easter’s egg hunt. I love taking pictures and scrapbooking so I can look back and see generations of family getting together for holidays and enjoying time together.
I don’t have any Easter pictures of us when we were kids hunting eggs & I wish I did. We had so much fun! I am an only child, but grew up close to my cousins and we spent a lot of time together. The adults would hide the eggs & we would all do the first egg hunt, but then we would take turns hiding the eggs and finding them again and again. Now we just enjoy catching up since we don’t get together as often.
Last year we decided to let the dogs do an “egg hunt”. We have a lot of dog toys that you can stuff with treats, so my husband took the dogs outside while I scattered them around the living room and then we let the dogs find them. It was cute but took them a while to figure it out.
Of course what Easter is really about is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is a time to reflect on the great blessing of his sacrifice.
He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: “The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.”
Luke 24 : 6-7 (NIV)
I hope that you have had a day filled with faith, family & fun and don’t forget to tell your Easter stories, too!
