This year Easter was very different. Having my own children really put a different spin on what exactly God did for us. Thinking of the love that God had for Christ and yet the sacrifice that was given made for a very intimate few days. Communion was taken with a bit more sincerity as I reflected on that night so many years ago! I really just can't imagine....
We spent Easter Sunday in Tremont to help as mom served lunch at church and enjoyed seeing old faces and catching up. I decided to get the girls Easter baskets. Reflecting on my youth... mom and dad always instilled in us the importance of Easter and what Jesus did for us but also gave us a few little goodies in an Easter basket. I didn't feel it overtook the importance of the day and so I hope to do the same for my girls.
Both girls really enjoyed finding out what was in their baskets. Just a wee bit more advanced than Christmas. However Montana didn't enjoy her goodies until she was inside and away from that ever so annoying itchy grass!
Set them down for pictures and this is how it goes...

So thankful to have this day with our family and to take time and remember the Sacrifice given for all of us if we accept it.
