He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Matthew 28:6
Easter is just days away and we have been reading the easter story to Beckett multiple times a day. We honestly don't get through the whole book each time. We sit down because Beckett loves turning the pages picking the book up and then moving on to the next thing so really you will find me reading the short story as fast as possible to see how far we can get each time. :)
Last year I thought a lot about the Easter basket. Maybe a little to much since I wanted to make sure our hearts are focused on the kingdom rather than worldly things. However the traditions of the Easter bunny is something I grew up with so I am trying to mix both of these things to be a bit realistic and to enjoy the holiday and reason all in one. Who doesn't love to Celebrate!
My goals when it comes to Easter baskets is to minimize the crap while buying things at a good price point or atleast items that can be used again. This can be a very hard task but he's small now so I believe its easier. His basket includes something to wear to church Easter Sunday, a book, wooden toys and for now snacks instead of candy. (Troy is always sad about this part, but apparently he enjoyed bunny grahams before it was even Easter so today I ran back to the store to pick out some snacks that probably won't be stolen ;) )
