Huntin' for eggs :)

Who doesn't love an old fashioned Easter Egg Hunt?  I think we all do... 

This morning we had the Rock-N-Roll Easter Egg Event at our church.  The kids were super excited to hunt for eggs, make crafts, and eat treats.

The countdown began ... Levi had some practice earlier in the week with Abby's class, so he was a pro!  Instead of a mad rush to collect as many eggs as one could ... you needed to find 10 specific eggs.  10 specific letters.  10 eggs to spell out the real meaning of Easter.  Abby took her time hunting for the letters and was happy to spell out ...

"Jesus Lives" ... the real meaning of Easter.

The kids made guitars, rocked out to karaoke, had their faces painted, and played several games to learn the story of Easter.  

It was such a fun morning ... lots to do, with lots of friends.  Of course it's always fun collecting eggs, playing with the Easter Bunny, and eating candy - but it's even more special to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ for "He is RISEN!"
