Our Easter celebrations began on Good Friday, also known as the day Jesus was crucified. Kyler suggested we take the kids to the temple grounds that morning, and I was more than agreeable. When we got there, we went for a little stroll around the temple, talking with the children about Christ and the resurrection, and how the temple is the House of the Lord. We were all enjoying ourselves, when Craig decided to take a break, sitting down on a little wall outside the temple. I ask him what's up, and he says,
"Sometimes, you make me sad, Momma."
Oh? Kyler comes over.
"Sometimes, you make me sad, Daddy."
How do we make you sad, Craig?
"You make mistakes... you need to repent."
You're right, Craig.
I love being humbled and chastised by a 2.5 year old. :) But, he's right. I do make mistakes. And because of my Savior, I can repent.
We continued our Easter fun with egg dying on Saturday morning. When I told Kyler it was almost time, Craig ran to the fridge and pulled out two hard boiled eggs, and then enthusiastically "cracked" them together. Isn't he helpful?
Calista wanted her egg to be purple,
And of course, Easter celebrations continued on Easter Sunday.
After church, they got to see their Easter baskets.
And finally, the Easter egg hunt. It was warm enough that we actually did it outside!
