My favorite things about Easter!

As an adult the one thing I enjoy most about Easter is spending time with my family and friends.  I enjoy getting up on Sunday morning and going to church with my family and then coming home to enjoy a wonderful meal together.  I guess really as an Adult who doesn't enjoy good food?  Usually after we eat I take the eggs that we colored on Saturday and hide them for all the little ones to hunt and find.  I really enjoy seeing their little faces and all the excitement they express running around looking for eggs.

    Also a big part of Easter for us is going to church and hearing the story of how Jesus was crucified on the cross and rose again three days later.  It is always enjoyable to watch from the tiniest to the biggest re-enact the story in a play and then discuss with them on the way home what they learned by doing the program in church.  I still enjoy the candy in their Easter baskets and of course who doesn't enjoy the messy coloring of the eggs.
