Easter is my favorite holiday for a lot of reasons - some of them deep and meaningful and others more surface level. I have always loved Easter and held it as my favorite holiday. And Good Friday is Hands Down my favorite day of the year. The powerful significance of that day coupled with spring in the air and husband off work and farmers markets open - heady stuff!
We had a wonderful time celebrating this week with friends and family. The kids always get fun packages and gifts for Easter - it's a little like a toned down Christmas for them. And, of course, the Egg Hunts are such fun. Abby was VERY into hunting this year. Three is such a fun time for that sort of thing.
She loved this craft!
After craft they had an egg hunt outside. Each child brought 12 stuffed eggs and got to get exactly 12.
After that we dyed Eggs with Kool-Aide. Grandma Sheri posted this on Facebook and we tried it. It worked great and was super fun and easy. Each packet of Kool Aide was 20 cents! You mix a packet with 2/3 cup water and dye away. We made a rainbows worth. Aaron loved it. And they dyed really quickly which was good for the impatient.
