Easter 2017!

Due to some health issues, I was not able to participate in Easter last year.  Fortunately, I am better this year and was able to enjoy the big event (Resurrection not the Egg Hunt)!  I also participated in Lent this year giving up all sweets.  While it was just a little sacrifice, it brought my focus to the sacrifice Jesus paid.

We don't really play up the Easter Bunny - he comes a few days before Easter with three things (small) for each child.   We don't get new outfits either.  In fact, I really like the ministry called Forgo the Frock.  Their idea is to sell shirts with the logo and the money is used to help vulnerable children. Folks would wear the t-shirt to church instead of a church outfit:).  You could also use all of the savings on outfits to give to other ministries.

We had our annual Easter Egg hunt at the lake with the young cousins, Andy's parents, and his 94 year old grandmother.  We dye eggs and then the big hunt occurs.  It has its challenges but is an exciting event for the kids (and dogs).
