This year,by far, was our best Easter ever.
Last year we made the decision not do “do”Easter anymore. Instead we arranged an egg hunt and baked cookies to decorate at the Ronald McDonald House in Pittsburgh.
This year, we did the same thing. Only with more eggs and lots more cookies!!
Yesterday, we got the kids up at 5:30 to get ready for the Sunrise service on the hill at church.
The service was awesome. We are so glad we went! After service, we all went back to the church and had a delicious eggs and sausage breakfast. Perfect.
With fully bellies, we headed to Pittsburgh to share Easter with children and their families that can’t be home.
The Ronald McDonald House.
Over the weekend we stuffed 150 plastic eggs to hide in the common room at RMH. After the egg hunt, we head to the family dining area and decorate the cookies we baked the day before.
We got to meet an amazing family-exchanged information-and hope to stay in contact with them.
We helped them find a fun activity to do yesterday and even showed some pics of the fun we had at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh as we went a few months ago. We hope they had a great day there.
After the activities settled down and the children went back to their rooms, or on to visit siblings in the hospital, we headed out ourselves.
We went to Dan’s parents house and the kids had their own egg hunt when they arrived.
After the egg hunt we ate lunch and Nana made a sundae bar for dessert. Delicious!!
My girl is getting the hang of this picture posing business
She is so beautiful. She has blossomed so much since she came home in December 2010. We still have so much learning to do ourselves to continue helping her-she’s as challenging as she is pretty.
But more on that later.
We pray you all had a blessed Easter and remember to celebrate His resurrection daily and not just one day a year.
HE IS RISEN!
