My Easter morning started bright and early with church at 6:30 AM…handbell choir, brass choir played, choir sang…it was a great service.
I made it home at 8 and, although Andrew had been awake since 7, he hadn’t started looking for his Easter basket yet (although he did find one of the eggs already). We ate breakfast and then started on the hunt. Andrew did manage to find all his eggs with some helpful hints from Mom and Dad (surprisingly, looking up at the ceiling saying “I just don’t know where they could be” didn’t work in finding anything!!).
All of his eggs had money in it…there was a dollar bill, 50 cents in nickles, a dollar in dimes, and a dollar in quarters. Andrew loves to count his money!!
With all of his eggs found, the search for his basket proved tricky as well. After deciding it must be in the kitchen he headed in there. At first, Andrew skipped right over the cabinet with the pot and pans saying “it can’t fit in there”, but (while looking at me and explaining why it couldn’t fit in there and almost missing it) he did decide to look inside and there it was!
With all the excitement from looking for the eggs and basket, this is how I found Andrew right before our lunch was ready:
