Our Easter weekend was busy and fun! Saturday morning we dyed eggs in our pj's since it was cold and rainy. Gav managed to dye both hands blue and the table/floor where he spilled one of the cups... He said,"its ok mom, accidents happen!" We were laughing and I was loving my blue-handed silly little boy, so happy to be home this year to do fun easter things!
That night we made resurrection cookies and I think it really helped Gav understand what Easter is all about. He loved helping and sealing our cookies in the 'tomb' (oven) overnight until easter morning. We're planning on making it a new tradition, only next year we might revamp our recipe...
The kids weren't too excited about Easter photos but I squeezed in a few after church in the front yard. We had yummy ham and potatoes for lunch and then an afternoon egg hunt!
I can't express how thankful I am to be home to enjoy spring and celebrate easter this year! Last spring is a blur and this year I'm trying to take it all in. Easter was in March last year, Teagan was 2 days old. She was born on good friday (and what a good friday it was!) We didn't learn about her special heart until saturday and she was airlifted that afternoon with daddy at her side. On Sunday (easter last year) I was released from the hospital and drove the 3 1/2 hours over to Seattle Children's where Teagan was. Six days after that she had her first surgery, and 1 month after that we came home. (sorry if that was confusing!) Here is a picture of my little bunny last year on April 14th!
Happy Easter! HE has risen indeed!
