Life with kids is ALWAYS an adventure. And I have 3 who are only 3 years apart. (yes, we're crazy.) This is my place to capture the craziness in all it's glory, because childhood only happens once. (thank goodness!)

When you get tired of reading about my kids visit my other blog all about ME!

We tried this year to help our children understand the true meaning of Easter. Of course they are still quite young so I mostly was just trying to reinforce the idea that Easter was about Jesus.

So the Easter Bunny came to our house Friday night so we had bunny goodies Saturday morning so Sunday could be just about Jesus.

We have a home evening lesson on the Resurrection.

We went to church for a special Easter service.

And I had this great idea to show my children the Lamb of God movie. (A movie produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints depicting the last week in the life of the Savior.)

I was feeling like such a great parent when I told them that after dinner we'd pop popcorn and watch a very special Easter movie.

Soon we were settled in on the couch together and I popped in the movie.

You can imagine my dismay as the opening scene appeared on the screen and Zoey asked "Where is the Easter Bunny"

I guess there's always next year.

If you'd like to receive your own copy of the Lamb of God visit and then click on the Free Media link located about half way down the page. You can then request your free copy of this beautiful movie.

Yeah.....I feel your pain. All through watching the "Lamb of God" my son kept asking when we were going to put "Ogre" on.

Cool idea. I think it helped it is always surprising what kids remember maybe some lesson in a few months your kids will surprise their teacher with their vast knowledge of the Resurrection.

I like your last paragraph. Once a missionary always a missionary. :)

I'm sure they learned something. Even if they were waiting for the Easter Bunny to makes its grand entrance.
