|Love her open mouth!|
But she soon woke up to enjoy time with Aunt Jackie for a few minutes before all the big children went out for my dad's challenging egg hunt!
My dad always hides the eggs in such tricky spots, so this year Scott hid some camouflage eggs I found at the Dollar Store for "Grandpa Boo-Boo" to find! He actually found several of them!
The kids enjoyed the challenging hunt -- finding eggs up in the trees, wedged in the woodpile, and one even hidden high in the basketball hoop!
We even got to spend some special time with Aunt Dorothy home from college for the weekend!

We ended this full day by having an Easter dinner with some friends from church. Heather and Josh are great hosts and made a delicious meal! The evening included yet another egg hunt, and the kids had a blast finding eggs with their friends. This egg hunt was a little different -- each kid was assigned a color they had to find. This way the eggs could be hidden according to the difficulty required for each kid's age! That was Sarah's brilliant idea! The kids did really well with this approach, though they often pointed out their friends' eggs once they spotted them.
Sarah also had the great idea of filling the toddler/baby kids eggs with goldfish crackers. Selah loved that!
And our friend Josh took some great pictures of Selah during the egg hunt. I have to share two of them with you. Isn't he talented?!!
Even though Easter is over, I just want to encourage you to read this article by Beth Moore called, Glorious Resurrection Day: He's Already Up! I love how Beth ties creation in with the resurrection -- just as God called "Let there be Light," in the beginning of time, and there was light, on Easter morning He called Christ from the grave saying, "Let there be Light," AND THERE WAS LIGHT! 2 Corinthians 4:6 says, "…for God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
