I was so happy that when I asked Annabelle why we celebrate Easter she would answer with "Jesus!". While He truly is the reason we celebrate, we also enjoy the traditional Easter Bunny and eggs fun.

Annabelle loved dying eggs.

She even dropped one from about 2 feet up and it landed in the green dye. My hand was spotted from the splash, along with Annabelle face and hair!

The community egg hunt was fun. Ok, actually it really wasn't anything spectacular this year. I saw more parents screaming at their kids to hurry and get the eggs than people enjoying it. We just let Annabelle go and she only got 3 eggs but she was happy!

Annabelle and Javi (my cousin's son). We watch him a couple days a week and both girls love playing with him.

Saturday night the girls put the eggs out with a note for the Easter Bunny.

He must have found it because the next morning they were hidden all over.

Layla preferred to go for this Cadbury egg!

And the girls also found their baskets full of goodies.

We also went over to Grandma and Grandpa Kroll's where the Easter Bunny left some other items for the girls. Then up to Great Grandma and Great Grandpa Ostler's for Easter dinner.
Holiday traditions really are so much fun with kids. We had a great weekend celebrating the life and mission of our Savior.
