I love the reason we celebrate Easter.
Death could not keep it's prey, Jesus my Savior.
Although it's so easy to get carried away with the festivities and forget the real significance, I do think it's a time to dress up, make beautiful things, enjoy family, and share joy with each other. All the while keeping the important things important. I want my children to grow up looking forward to family traditions, and knowing exactly why they are there. Like the feasts in the bible.
Evin's favorite food at the moment is eggs, so you can imagine his delight when we told him to find pretty colorful eggs out in the yard. He thought it was just the greatest thing ever. We eat pretty healthy around here, so Evin hasn't ever had candy (to my knowledge), so he was pretty content with his raisins he got, but I'm not sure what we'll do next year. And ah! I just love dressing little boys up! Yes, I'm looking forward to little dresses at some point, but I'm enjoying what I have at the moment.
We had our traditional lamb dinner, but Tim grilled it this year, yummm! And I made my favorite lemonade bars, which I could eat pretty much every day if I let myself. I'm more of a tart and or creamy dessert type girl, vs. too sweet. And there's something about cooking in a little Anthropologie apron that makes everything taste better.
We were going to do our 'official' Spring family picture but my weather app says a typhoon is coming tonight so I guess we'll have to hold off for a few more days. Speaking of which, I'd better go check our basement and make sure everything is off the floor. Hope you enjoy our little family fun.
