This year Easter was CRazY! We read lots of books about Easter and the bigger picture of why celebrate it, but the fact is she is 2 and fascinated with Easter Bunny. Almost to the point of obsession. I think we have found her favorite holiday now.
We started the madness out Thursday before Easter and visited the Easter Bunny at Walgreens and got a picture and a treat, and from there on out she was hooked :) We told the Bunny to stop by early on Saturday so we could keep things a little more quiet on Easter and try and keep the focus on the true meaning and impact in our lives.
The Bunny himself came and left a basket of goodies and a Buzz Lightyear fishing pole she has been eyeing for a while and a New Testament book. Although she was distracted by the Candy filled eggs that led the trail to her basket :) Then it was on to our first Egg hunt of the day at the Enoch City offices. Where we had another visit with a Easter Bunny and she loved grabbing eggs up. Then it was onto the next Egg Hunt, Jayme's Dads work was putting on. It was allot better hunt with tons of eggs and she was an expert at Egg grabbing. Then they served up breakfast and started the crafts. Leta got to decorate a foam Easter Egg and Egg shaped cookies, she loved it.
Sunday was church and dinner with family, the best part of any Holiday! And a small Egg hunt for the two little ones.
All in all a perfect Easter if I say so myself...Easter Bunny??

Scouting for Eggs
Jayme got her a fishing pole and despite my best efforts I couldn't find a kids book on Jesus being the fisher of men so I got the New Testament for kids and a card sized picture :)
