egg hunts and easter morning

Happy Easter from the Neckers family!

We continued our Easter celebrations yesterday by attending a community Easter egg hunt with friends.

Elia had a great time and was a surprisingly good egg hunter.

She even got to explore a fire truck while she was there.

Her enthusiasm for Easter activities and eggs reassured me that a full Easter morning would be worth investing in. Since our church offers two services on Easter Sunday so we were able to pack in lots of Easter fun before the main event began.

Elia woke up to bunny prints outside of her bedroom.

She followed the trail and found that the Easter bunny had filled her Easter basket with some goodies, which she opened while I made a special Easter breakfast.

 I have to admit, I was pretty proud of my first attempt at a bunny pancake.

 After breakfast we stayed in our jammies and reprised the Easter egg hunt.

Elia found all of the eggs and made sure to eat the bunny graham found in each before depositing the eggs into her basket.

We got ready for church after that and Elia proudly sported her new shoes from "Hop Hop" aka the Easter Bunny. He did a really nice job of picking something to complement her new dress.

Our church service was really lovely and we headed over to Todd's parents for a wonderful brunch with both sets of grandparents. Elia was spoiled by an Easter basket from each set of grandparents as well as an early birthday gift from Todd's parents who will be out of town on her big day. This little girl is beyond blessed and we are so thankful that she has such loving grandparents on both sides.

I hope you all are enjoying a wonderful Easter. He is risen, indeed!
