Easter 2014


They came on Sunday to celebrate Easter. 

After filling up on Turkey dinner...
they were ready to wear off some of their daily quota of unused energy....
before diving into the last batch of Paska!


While they waited patiently inside...
the eggs were tucked here and there ...
high...
and low.


They don't care if they find plastic empty eggs or shiny foil covered chocolate ones.

They hardly notice that the eggs they find and tuck into their basket...
are then picked out of their basket while they are not looking..
and re-hidden to keep the hunt last as long as possible.


I was thankful for so many things.
The weather cooperated which was like icing on the cake  Paska!


We were able to find a day that suited everyone!
We had more than enough for one family to eat!
Everyone had a good appetite!


Incredible blessings!

We celebrate a risen Saviour.

Our lives are not without challenges but those things we face we face together as a family who believes God is able to give strength for each day...
and joy and peace in the midst of it all.

all for now...

  4. My goodness but those children are growing! We had an Easter egg hunt in Edmonton too, but it was indoors. Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend!

  7. That was so well said. It appears that it was a beautiful day all the way around. I enjoyed seeing the sweet Easter outfits and hearing about your delicious Paska. (Alas, mine was a serious disappointment this year. Oh well. The cook was thinking other thoughts apparently.)

  10. The hunt is never long enough...and most of the fun is for the person hiding it...as the years go on, the challenge of hiding them becomes more adventuresome. Some beautiful photos.
