This Easter With My Kids

The season of Lent is over. I must say, it was difficult for me to uphold my commitment for Lent, but I did it and I am happy that I did. I enjoyed Easter with my kids this year. We did not have Easter 2008Easter Egg Hunts at the church or extravagant Easter parties this year, so it was very easily managed. I had a lot of fun putting together their Easter baskets. Aidan is so young, it was difficult to make him a basket of equal size to his sister’s. I made it work. My beautiful kids seemed to really enjoy Easter, especially Imogene. We spent Holy Week with family and friends. I enjoyed the company of both, but had a rough week. Sorry guys. We did start a new tradition in our family this Easter. We decided to not worry with Easter baskets until after the morning festivities had ended. We waited until after the morning church services to give one another Easter goodies. I think this is a good and helpful tradition for us. Sunday mornings can be hectic enough around the parsonage. It really helped us (parents) enjoy the day a little more. I really liked Aidan in his little hat. Chubby boys look cute in hats! Imogene opted for a white headband. She actually insisted on wearing it. I enjoy spending holidays with my beautiful children. It is really neat to make the holy days special for them and see them enjoy it. Imogene was especially fond of her chocolate bunny! Even though she was a maniac after eating it, I am glad she enjoyed it and the day. It makes me feel like I’ve done my job well.
