I look forward to Easter every year. I enjoy taking time during the busy weekend to reflect on why we celebrate Easter. I am thankful that God sent his Son to die for our sins and three days later the tomb was empty – Christ has Risen!
As a family we have several things that we do almost every year. We start the Easter weekend off with a Good Friday Service at our church.
Here are our Easter Family Traditions…
EASTER EGG HUNT
We host an Easter Egg Hunt for our church life group every year. This year will be our 5th annual Easter Egg Hunt.
Here is a look back at the past four years…
Our first hunt
Easter Egg Hunt 2014
Easter Egg Hunt 2015
Easter Egg Hunt 2016
After our class Easter Egg Hunt we head to our church for a HUGE community event
Loved these two pictures from several years ago…
Last year the girls loved the petting zoo…
Kate loved this little pig!
Abigail held every little chick they had.
She really wanted to held this bunny but it kept jumping out of her arms so they put it in her Easter basket – great idea
Then is was time for the Easter Egg Hunt – 20,000 EGGS!!!
Let the fun begin…
I love putting together cute Easter baskets every year.
We also try to incorporate some fun family activites. The girls love to dye eggs. We are planning to do this activity Saturday afternoon.
Several years ago we made Resurrection Rolls and I am going to try to do this again with the girls tomorrow.
The finished product. HE HAS RISEN!
Finally, every year we take a family picture. Some years this is hard to do but I love to capture the one time a year that we get all dressed up.
Our first Easter as a family of four – 2010
Those are just a few of our family traditions for Easter. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter Weekend.
