HAPPY EASTER, Y'ALL!!! I've always loved Easter, but especially since Eric and I have grown in our Faith these last few years, I love Easter even more. I love the spring weather, and that summer break is just around the corner! Don't you?
Isabelle is getting a little too old for some of the kiddie Easter festivities so we didn't dye any eggs this year, but she still gets an Easter basket, and I don't think that's something I'll ever stop doing for her.
She did participate in an Easter egg hunt with her friends here on-post where we live. The kids were separated into age groups to make the hunting more fair. There were kids and parents everywhere, so Eric and I sat on a hill and I took pictures. I sensed that the dynamics for hunting eggs for the 11-12 year old age group was bordering on Hunger Games, so Eric and I felt that getting out of the way was best for our survival.
The state that we live in, Rheinland-Pfalz, is a forest which makes the perfect terrain for an Easter egg hunt! The trees and small hills are different from what we're used to in South Dakota! Isabelle loved it!
Since none of our holiday decorations made it to Germany I had to do the best I could with decorations and basket goodies... pickins' were slim at the BX.
We're almost done with all of first holiday's here in Germany. Mother's Day will be the last and then we'll have been here for a year already! Holiday's here are just as special as they are at home and not that much different, well actually, Germans celebrate Easter with a 4-day weekend....those lucky ducks.
Eric and I are thankful to be together, for our Faith in Christ Jesus, and for His love for us. Wishing y'all a blessed day!
1 Peter 1:3 "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead."
