The festivities began the day before with dying eggs.

They each found about thirty-something eggs.

Bella found the golden egg and was the winner of the golden bunny and $5!

Inside each egg was a piece of candy and slips of paper for either a prize or a cent/dollar amount. Each of the kids did pretty well on that egg hunt!

The next morning was Easter morning! It was an early rise for all of us since we attended the sunrise service at church.

Every year the church is decorated a little differently and it always looks beautiful.

After church, we came home, changed, and then hunted for Easter baskets. Graydon found his first! It was hiding under his bean bag chair.

Curtis was next. His was hiding behind some pillows in the living room.

Bella was way last! She wanted a challenge this year and we gave it to her. Her basket was hiding beneath her dirty clothes in her clothes hamper in the laundry room.
