Easter 2008

Easter at our house this year was quite busy! We participated in three Easter egg hunts, not to mention the dozens of times we hid eggs at our house. Both of the girls had their own agendas in hunting the eggs. Molly is old enough that she was focused on the number of eggs she could collect and was competitive. Sadie, on the other hand, was more concerned about what was in the eggs--she would find an egg, pick it up and open it to check out its contents. If it wasn't chocolate (particularly reese cups or M&M's) she would throw it over her shoulder and keep looking!!!

Right before Easter, I finally got my hands on some Resurrection Eggs. These are plastic eggs that tell the story of Easter by their contents. It's a very neat concept and the girls really seemed to understand. We made foam coasters for everyone to use at our Easter dinner. We were writing names on the coasters and Molly said "Mommy, I think we should write "Jesus died on the cross for our sins" on them." I was suprised but thrilled that she understood enough to ask me to do that!

My Mom had her work cut out for her this year with Easter dresses for three little girls! She did a wonderful job and even completed them several days early! They all looked so sweet.

These are from school egg hunts:

Egg hunt and Easter Bunny at the Club:
Reagan is the only one who would sit with the Easter Bunny!

Molly decided it was okay to hold his hand.

Sadie preferred the safety of Daddy's lap!

How cute is this little bunny?

Easter Sunday:
Daddy and his girls

Granna and her girls--look at those dresses she made!!!

As you can see, we had a wonderful time. And now all my holidays are caught up on the blog!

I found my way to your blog from "Lots of Scotts", not sure how I found that one. But I had to leave you a comment. I have 2 girls also. The oldest, Gracie, was born Oct.1 of 2003 and then like you we were blessed with our second, Mollie, on February 26 of 2005. Reading parts of your blog was like reading my own!!!
