Easter 2012

In preparation for Easter this year we had been doing a Resurrection Egg each evening.  This was perfect for Calvin; he loved it and can tell the entire story with the help of his eggs now.  It’s fun to see him learn the passages of scripture and watch his excitement and amazement grow with each story.

We had taken cookies to our neighbors the night before and right before we had a little egg hunt at our apartment, our neighbor came by with a little gift for the boys.  How sweet is that?  I just love our neighbors.

We’re very thankful for the ex pats community in our city.  For our tiny little town (about 300,000) there is a good group of ex pats.  It's special for our kids to get to have some American traditions with other kids growing up so far away from America. 

We had a sweet time together in worship.  Marvin did a great job leading our time.  In our group we had multiple countries represented, so it always makes worship more meaningful to get a little taste of what heaven will be like.  It’s a day I won’t forget for a long time.

Of course everyone brought yummy food.

We even had an egg hunt.  With prizes for all the kids.

Calvin carried his bucket around the entire day.  Munching on all the sweets he found.

Micah had fun taking his eggs in and out of his bucket. He stuck with it much longer than I thought.

We have so much to celebrate and I’m thankful for the sweet memories created this year.
