Easter season has begun

Like every holiday, Easter is starting to get a little out of control. I have honestly been thinking about getting rid of the Easter bunny to focus on the real aspect of the season, but I have a hard time not seeing my kids get so excited about it.

So Saturday we went to the second egg hunt the kids have been to this year put on by the city. They had a good time collecting eggs, visiting the petting zoo (except for Christian who stuck to me like glue and wouldn't even pet the bunny rabbits--that kid), and taking a ride on the hay wagon. It was fun watching Alivia figure out she was supposed to pick up the eggs and put them in her basket. Being a fourth child, she was trying to grab them all and hold them in her hands because you can't leave them unprotected. I finally convinced her to let me put them in her basket so she could get more.

Conference this weekend was awesome and seemed to come in the nick of time. Just when you need it. Next Sunday we are going to hold a devotional which should be good for focus, too. Happy Easter everyone!

Thats what I say every year but then I think I get more excited for the kids and we just have fun! Next year I'll probably make a quite bag for church and put it in their basket with a few goodies! we'll see ! :)

Looks like your kids had a bast though...the zoo looks like fun! How funny about Alivia!
