This Easter was a little different than usual~ Since [for obvious reasons] runny-nosed children are frowned upon in the church nursery, we spent our Easter morning at home. While I was sad that Caleb didn't get to wear one of the fifteen Easter outfit options I had laid out for him; and while it was most definitely odd not gathering with our church family for worship, we had a really special morning together as a family.
We spent time in praise together and celebrated the day with Easter books, Easter baskets, a special Easter lunch, a 19-month old's version of an Easter egg hunt, and lots of outside bubbles and sidewalk chalk.
|As Easter approaches [or any holiday for that matter], I love reading both fun and serious books to celebrate the occasion. With teacher blood running through my veins, I just can't help but break out reading material for any and all celebrations.|
|Someway...Somehow, these glasses have become an annual part of our Easter celebration. Check out this next picture from Caleb's first Easter (2012):|
|Makes me smile every time I see it...|
|Caleb's favorite part of Easter - for the second year in a row - has been the Easter grass. Who needs candy?!|
It was nice being together over the long weekend, and we are glad to be kicking these two-week-long colds to the curb! Happy Spring, everyone!
