Family Easter Celebration

What a blessed weekend we spent as a family, celebrating the resurrection of our Savior.

The goal was to focus was on Christ and what he did, to remember the pain and suffering He bore, for us.

We borrowed the idea from Ann Voskamp using a grapevine wreath and toothpicks for each rebellious act that needed repentance. To our shame, the wreath filled more quickly than one would hope.

Saturday morning, was a time for just our family to celebrate and remember what this holiday means to us.

We started with the resurrection eggs to tell the incredible story of a grace that we cannot possibly understand, but that through faith we believe.

The kids were given baskets and a lego set to represent the greatest gift ever given.

We spent most of the morning assembling and creating together, it was a lot of fun, to just hang out and play with nothing else pulling at our attention.

Audrey received her first normal sized lego set of her own, Alexa added a convertible to her Friends ® collection, while Treyton got a gas truck (and tank) to add to his city ®.
