Spring has finally sprung around these parts and I AM EXCITED! Without a doubt Spring (followed by Fall) is my favourite season. I love the longer days, the sunshine, the warmth without heat, the new growth, the return of the birds and Easter.
Of all the holidays we celebrate Easter is the one I enjoy and anticipate the most – it trumps Christmas. There is something so special, powerful for me in the ritual of Easter Sunday – getting up early with the girls to go on an Egg hunt, followed by a special waffle breakfast (everything, and I do mean everything is better with waffles). Then it’s on with new(!) Easter dresses and out the door to my very most favourite church service of the year – the one day where we really, REALLY get to celebrate the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus. I mean, seriously who doesn’t love being able to say “He is Risen” and know that means we have been given salvation?!!
This Easter is no different, I’ve been gearing up for all the fun and festivities for a few weeks now. The dresses are bought, the Kinder has arrived and I’m just getting ready to start the hunting cards for our Easter Egg Scavenger hunt.
Kinder has big plans for their Easter holiday too. Once again their fabulous Share the Joy program is leaving love and chocolate covered footprints on the hearts of families who really need it. They will be donating 12 exciting Easter treat baskets to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals this year as well as donating $25,000 to help support them. With all that has transpired over the past week, this is hitting home even harder than ever for us.
When it comes to knowing “Easter” I’d say the team at Kinder fits into the experts category. I mean, their signature product is an egg for goodness sakes, and a darned good one at that!
This Easter they’ve made egg hunting even easier with their Egg Hunt Kit, which is filled with Kinder Eggs, bunnies, mini eggs and more all waiting to be hidden – and then eaten! They even have these sweet little lambs to snuggle & love long after the chocolate has been devoured. Check out the Kinder Facebook page to see what other exciting things are happening this Easter!
Happy Easter friends, enjoy your family & your friends – this life is filled with sweet blessings, when we stop and take the time to celebrate them!
