It started off with an Easter egg hunt at the church for play group. Macy was very, very excited about this. I couldn't get a picture of her face because she was too excited to stop and look. She followed her friend Oliver around but was very selective in her egg pickings. We was supposed to pick 10 but ended up with only 7 and I think I put 3 in there. After counting the eggs we went back inside and she proceeded to eat all the candy. Luckily one egg had stickers instead.

Easter Sunday was a nice day. Macy woke up and wanted to find her basket that the tricky bunny Easter hid. She walked out her door to find little bunny footprints going around the house. She found Anna's basket first then found "clues" that helped her find her basket. We didn't put any clues out. She found things that were on the floor and thought they were clues. She's so funny.
|So excited about her basket!|
On the way home from church Macy told us what she learned in primary. She said Jesus died so we can live again. He was wrapped in cloth and an angel came. And Mary was there. I was quite impressed with her memory! So cute. She also sang I Am a Child of God.
After church Macy wanted to watch a movie so I said we could watch an Easter movie. I was thinking about The Lamb of God since that's about Christ's death and resurrection. I pull it out and Macy said, "Where's the bunny Easter?" Sadly I realized we hadn't taught her the most important part of Easter. We had a little Easter lesson followed by the movie. We watched The Lamb of God and Macy loved it. We watched a few times. At the right parts Macy would say, "Jesus died." I would ask her why and she would reply, "So we can live again." She was concerned the angel didn't appear in the movie and she didn't like it when Christ was getting whipped. I found Finding Faith in Christ so we watched that one a few times also. Since it's also about Christ's death and resurrection she would say, "This is like the other movie!" when scenes were similar. We'll have to pull those movies out more often. She really liked watching them.
For dinner we went to Cassidy's house and enjoyed a very delicious dinner. Trevor's rolls were definitely the winning food on the table. Everything was delicious and the evening was very enjoyable. The night ended with Macy dressed as Snow White reading with Luc. She did not want to go home and kept saying, "No mom! Five more minutes!"
