This year, it was Levi's turn to be sick on Easter. Poor guy had a cold virus, complete with 4 days of fever and lots of snot. But we had plenty of Easter fun anyway!
Bird enjoyed dying eggs and playing with the Burns cousins on Good Friday evening. Once the eggs were dyed and hot dogs were eaten for dinner, the boys had to go out and do an egg hunt trial run to practice for Sunday's big hunt!
Saturday we had an Easter Egg hunt at our church, Riverview Baptist. Bird thought he was big stuff getting to hunt by himself while Daddy watched from a distance. And he was thrilled to bring home a basket full of candy from all the eggs he found!
Sunday, Jacin and Jackson went to Sunday School, and Levi and I joined them for the church service. I sat in the cry room with Levi during the service, though, because he was still running a fever. Despite the rain and the sickness and a major temper tantrum, we managed to all get dressed up in our new Easter outfits. I thought the boys looked extra cute, but Bird couldn't wait to change from his shorts and loafers into jeans and boots.
And after Easter lunch at the Granny & Pawpaw's house, the annual Burns Cousins Easter Egg Hunt commenced. The rain tapered off just in time.
A good time (followed by a nice long nap) was had by all.
He is risen! He is risen, indeed!!!
