On Easter Sunday we got all dressed up in our matching outfits (I can't help it - I love this part!) and headed to church to celebrate Resurrection Sunday! Eben even got to have another Easter egg hunt and the other kids all received little stuffed Easter bears from their teachers.
After church we came home and I whipped up some Easter baskets and Dada hid them while the kids watched an Easter movie. When Dada was ready we all found our baskets.
We decided that the big gift for the kids this year would be chickens! I've always wanted chickens - I even tried about 5 Easters ago and bought chicks without Peter's permission. I had to give them away. But this time everyone was on board! So the kids got pictures of chicks in their baskets and were told they would get to pick out their own live version the next day. Thus, the birds.
And the bees!
I have also talked about wanting bees forever. And for some reason, Peter completely surprised me with a bee hive he had been building in secret and an Easter basket full of bee supplies! I was so extremely shocked and excited and happy! He is the greatest, greatest, greatest!
Birds and Bees! So much fun!! And soon there will be a baby too! Ha!
All the Johnsons came over for a turkey Easter lunch which Peter made. It was delicious!

For dinner we went over to the Schocks with our Bible study friends and hung out, played games and let the children have some fun too. It was a great Easter day and a fun way to remember Christ and His love for us!
