Yesterday we woke Stella with a rousing chorus of Halleluia! He is Risen! It’s Easter, Stella! Jesus died to save us all and then he rose to Heaven and lives with God (and Auntie Jaime!).
She was a little confused, but thought it was cool that Jesus and Auntie Jaime were roomies. 🙂
Then we headed downstairs to see what the Easter Bunny had brought (what a weird tradition, amiright?), and there were COLORING BOOKS and PRAYER BOOKS and HELIUM BALLOONS and COOL GLASSES WITH SQUIGGLY STRAWS. You know, all the cool stuff that excites little kids without sugar involved.
When we got to church a couple of hours later, they had an Easter Egg hunt set up for the kiddos, and my kids were basically IT. Ha. Eggs and eggs and more eggs. They were in Heaven…. sugar heaven.
You can’t say I didn’t try… 😉
