This year Easter was a lot of fun. However, if I'm being honest, I will say, it wasn't the most spiritual. And that made me really sad. I sure was missing the Easter Pageant this year. I didn't feel as fulfilled without it. Plus, when you have an 18 month old running around at church it's hard to feel completely uplifted. Luckily, on the 45 minute drive to and from Mandi's house we listend to the Lamb Of God by Rob Garnder, which was truly amazing and that made up for a lot.
So let's begin with the festivities that happened the day before Easter.
I made little bunny sacks on a whim with some materials I had on hand to deliver to Evie's friends here at the apartments.
And inside were these adorably delicious goodies.
And who else to deliver these Easter treats but the Easter Bunny herself.
I showed Evie what she looked like in the mirror and she loved it! She kept looking at herself and smiling and twirling. But even more than that, she loved carrying around her basket of goodies. She didn't so much love actually giving them away though;)
She was so adorable walking down the halls in her little get-up and knocking on the doors. It was hard not to eat her up.
Church came real early Sunday morning and we had to wake the princess up. She went straight to her little basket of eggs. Neve rmind the giant basket of toys.
I attempted to make bunny pancakes for breakfast and failed mostly. One out of about ten worked though and that's all we needed.
She loved it.
Next it was off to church and my girl looked so precious in her Easter outfit.
I made her headband and corsage and Grandma Judy and the Bead Diva made her bracelet.
After church we went out to Mandi's house and had a delectable Steak Brian dinner followed by an Easter egg hunt. Evie knew just what to do. She loved carrying her basket and putting the eggs in.
The kids had so much fun and we were so happy we got to spend Easter with the Collins crew.
