Children's children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children. ~Proverbs 17:6
Oh, what an amazing visit we enjoy last week with daughter, Sarah, son-in-love, John, and the three grands - Virginia, Savannah and Alexandra! As there isn't room to allow all of them to stay at our house, we secure a beautiful hotel room nearby; Virginia, however, spends every night with us, just like in the "old" days. Parents and sisters come by each day to hang out together.
There are so many fun things we do during this time, but Easter is one of the highlights. See the photo above? That's Virginia getting ready to help the Easter bunny hide eggs for her siblings. She informs us on no uncertain terms, that she is too old to go on egg hunts anymore. Such a bittersweet statement to hear!
When the rest of the family arrives, it's time for the egg hunt to begin!
Both Savannah and Alexandra relish the big hauls in their baskets. How surprised they are to open the plastic eggs and find coins instead of candy.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg for our Easter festivities. The girls open gifts from their mom and dad. What treasures!
Last, but not least, they open the gifts from Gammie and Papa.
Did any of you guess as to which T-shirt would go to each girl?
That's right! Virginia loves anything space and everything cats, Savannah is enamored by unicorns and little Alexandra envisions herself as a super hero, so she got the Captain Marvel tee.
I'd venture to say that the adults bring as much joy to them at Eastertide as they bring to us!
May we all continue to celebrate our risen Lord!
