Easter weekend started off with Lydia’s very own Easter basket hunt around our yard. We decided to do it on a Saturday this year to keep it more simple on Sunday’s and focused. Lydia didn’t seem to mind getting her Easter basket a day early. We have her follow a green string of yarn around the yard to find her basket.
I hid it next to the lovely and attractive green electrical box that divides our yard from our neighbors. I know it’s not very pretty in pictures. But you work with what you got people!

At the end of the basket hunt we had her find Easter eggs around the house. I filled all of them with different coins thinking she would love it. She did for the first four. Then when realizing they were all filled with money she shouted, “Where’s the candy?!” Lesson learned. Next year I will fill them with both candy and money. Silly me trying to save my child’s teeth and healthiness.
Easter morning breakfast was french toast, strawberries, and orange juice. Delish.

Grandma Miller had us over for dinner and an Easter egg hunt. Lydia was delighted that these eggs actually contained candy.

I am incredibly grateful for Easter. I love that it reminds everyone, including myself, the great sacrifice our Savior did for us by atoning for our sins and dying for us. Such incredible love that I cannot fathom. It is because of him I can live eternally with my family. I have a testimony that He lives! What a beautiful reminder this day was for me to know of our Savior’s love for us.
