Getting Ready for Easter

Many years ago, a friend and I started having an Easter egg hunt for our, then, little between us.

As the years went by, the egg hunt got bigger and better, the climax to our celebration of Jesus' resurrection.

But my friend's family moved, and our kids grew up.

However! There is still an egg hunt happening at our house!

This morning, Claire found me having my latte on the living room floor, filling all these plastic eggs for the 13 kids who will be here tomorrow. Lily, our dog, couldn't resist hanging out with me, hoping for a little nibble (which she didn't get!).

The rest of the day was spent working in the yard, preparing it for the crowd who will join us in the afternoon tomorrow.

My dad is not only good at mowing lawns, but also ridding our lawn of hand! I don't know how many basketfuls he has collected in these past weeks, but I will say, our yard hasn't looked this good in a long time! 

Maybe there will be some Easter eggs hidden in my flower garden tomorrow!

After having had a beautiful sunny day today, I hear rain pattering on my window ledge outside my office tonight. I'm sure hoping for some sunshine tomorrow for my little Easter egg hunters!


  1. Hi Mrs Patty. This is Grace. At school my teacher, Miss Richardson, made her own Ressurection Eggs. It made me think of you and all the times we did those eggs with you. In her eggs, she had the verses and the object. We read the verses aloud - and then had to guess what object was in the egg. I had the egg with the cross.

    My Uncle Jason is visiting and we're having a BIG Easter egg hunt. It won't be the same without the Ressurection eggs and you guys!

    love, Grace
