The Big Egg Hunt

Since Anniston is almost two, Gabe and I decided to do a real Easter egg hunt for her on the Saturday before Easter! We invited her besty, Logan, his parentals, and my family, to join in. The kids had a great time and actually did pretty well finding the eggs on their own, only needing minimal help from us.  Anniston seemed to enjoy the actual hunt more than the rewards inside the eggs.  She kept asking us to hide the eggs so she could go find them again. The weather that day was absolutely perfect! We pretty much spent the entire day just hanging out in my parents front yard. Pretty successful to say the least. Something important to note is that Anniston likes to refer to the Easter bunny as the Santa bunny.  I mean, it kind of makes since I guess. Ha. She also likes to refer to the Monopoly guy as Santa. The only thing that could have made our little family Easter egg hunt better would have been more family! It would've been nice to have more of the extended family there, but for many of them, it's quite a drive. Living in different states is a real bummer, especially during holidays. I hope everyone who celebrates Easter enjoyed their Easter weekend and took time to remember Our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His atoning sacrifice and resurrection.

“So today we celebrate the gift of victory over every fall we have ever experienced, every sorrow we have ever known, every discouragement we have ever had, every fear we have ever faced..."
