Easter 2016

Happy belated Easter, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and that you were able to focus on the sacrifice Jesus made for all of us.  It really gets me every year when you think of all the suffering he went through, just to save us...

We had a wonderful weekend!  Friday Brad and I both worked (he was coming home from a long week of travel) and just had a low key evening.  We played Carbels with the girls and I think we were all in bed by 9!

Saturday morning was so nice and relaxing, it was rainy and cool and we were completely lazy.  I got some laundry and cleaning done and Brad worked on the basement (we are in the process of finishing our lower levels).  We watched parts of the movie "Killing Jesus" that was on the History channel, it was a very good not-so-violent depiction of the Crucifixion. I liked that the girls got a better idea of why we celebrate Easter and especially why Jesus died on the cross.  

Around 2 we headed over to friends of ours to watch some St. Cloud State hockey and MN Wild hockey.  We ate lots of good food and enjoyed a few cocktails.

We got home around 6 and started coloring Easter eggs.

Typically we do an outside egg hunt in the dark.  I put battery operated tea lights in the eggs and they find them, it is so fun!  There have been a few Easters that I hide them in the snow, haha!  This year was rainy so we had to do an indoor one.

I fill the eggs with change and they make a haul!

Easter morning Brad woke up at 4 because he remembered that we forgot to make our jello dessert we make every year.  So, he and I were cooking in the kitchen at 4:15 am!  We went to church at 9:30 and the headed over to the farm for the day.

It was a very relaxing weekend filled with family, just the way we like it!

Linking up with Momfessionals for Friday Favorites!

Everyone looks nice in their Easter outfits. I like the idea of an egg hunt with tea lights. I've not heard of Killing Jesus. Will have to check it out.
