Although we had a newborn arrive in the middle of our Easter week and things were a little crazy, Felicity just added an additional reason to be joyful.

Here are some of the things we did:
- each day for 12 days we hid the resurrection eggs. by the end of the time Henry was quite good at finding them. The highlight was eating the bread each day hidden in the first one
- each day for 7 days we lit candles and read bible stories about Easter
- Andrew made a cross for the front yard which we put up on Good Friday
- Lucy made a 'He is Risen!' sign and we put it on the cross on Easter Sunday
- Lucy decorated a box for our Easter books
- We learned a bible verse by heart (John 11:25-26)
- We ate strawberry hot cross buns from Panera
- We went to church on Easter Sunday (Felicity's first Sunday, first church service and first Easter Sunday all rolled into one)
- On Easter Sunday the kids got Easter baskets
