Happy Easter!
We've enjoyed the Easter season with egg decorating, egg hunting and planting our garden, and reading the Easter Story each night before putting Mya to bed. I've always loved holidays, but being able to enjoy it 2 year old is even more fun. Her favorite part of the story is when Jesus is riding into Bethlehem on his donkey. We sing, "Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna in the highest," each time, as the crowd welcomes him by waving palm branches and celebrating. She also knows why we have the first Easter. She comments each time on how the cross was really heavy for Jesus to carry, and how the angels were at the tomb to tell the women that he wasn't there. She gets really excited at that part. The Easter Bunny did come last night (and brought her a boat load of stuff I might add), but she wasn't nearly as excited for that as she was for going to church and singing "hosanna" today. Thank you Jesus for giving your life, so that we could have our amazing life. We are so blessed to be able to cherish these wonderful moments with our little one.
