Preparing for Easter

Not too long ago, I purchased The Beginner's Bible for my girls. They're very interested with the stories and graphics and it has been a great introduction into teaching them about Christ.

This Easter I plan on pulling stories from the bible to help explain the meaning of Easter and why we celebrate. Easter has always been Bella's favorite holiday! Perhaps it's the fun pastel colors, pretty dress up, or the fuzzy little bunny.

We are very excited to coloring eggs this year and I'm trying a more natural method that you will have to check back and see!
