We had an easter egg dying par-tay at Jason’s parents house this week. All the cousins came and everyone decorated eggs, listened to why we celebrate new life in Jesus at Easter, and mostly giggled and made messes. I think we actually broke more eggs than we ended up with but the process was awesome. Gathering around the table, telling stories, praying, laughing, and getting our creative on. Good stuff.

Annikah and I were up early this morning and decided to make a banner for Easter out of those paint sample papers I got nabbed from Walmart, some yarn Bibi had in house, crayons, a hole punch we swiped from Babu’s desk. She decided to drape it around her neck and dance around saying “He’s alive! He’s alive!” And that is how it should be. Celebration. Dancing. Joy.

We celebrate Easter today with everyone in Iowa so more pictures to come of the festivities which I can guarantee include cute cousin pictures, hunting eggs, reading His Word, making special rolls, eating too much, and being together. Happy Easter...Pasaka Njema.
