Our Way of Celebrating Easter Sunday

Easter or Resurrection Sunday is a Festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Great Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. (Wikipedia)

Most Christians celebrate Easter by going to the beach, having a party, and holding the most popular and exciting Easter Egg Hunting game.

We have had the game at home. Saturday, I asked the kids to make Easter Eggs using just about anything they could. They were giddy about it.

I didn’t expect it would turn out this crafty…

After hearing the Mass early in the morning, I started hiding the eggs while everyone is busy doing their thing. I hid 6 eggs ( a supposed 7 if they didn’t break the other one) just around mom’s house. A little later, I started wailing, “Easter Egg Hunt!“, making all of them, including the adults 😀 to come out. LOL!

Here are some of the scenario at home while hunting for those eggs. 😀

And finally, these hunters came out to be the happy quick ones!

So they kept the egg and the cash prize along with it. 🙂

Happy Easter 2017!

Because I believe life should not only be lived. It should be celebrated. It’s not about how much is spent but how it was spent that made her ask for nothing more.

Kate @16 with her Homemade Red Velvet Cupcake

No filter here… a photo of me and the April 7 girl who just rose from bed, sporting her homemade red velvet cupcake made by the doting mom (yours truly) especially for her on her 16th birthday.

It was my first time to cook and bake for an occasion and I just love that it’s summer. It was really my plan to prepare a lunch meal for the family since we planned to leave after for the city to give way for her another birthday request – a day with the wilds and critters in a park.

These red velvet cupcakes were especially requested by her. She just love it and can’t seem to get enough of it.

Another request that this young lady have had  was to spend part of her birthday with the crocs and critters at the Crocodile Park in Davao City. To me it is rather weird. She could have wished for an electric bass guitar at guitarcenter.com since she intended to enroll in a music lesson this summer… but a wish is a wish… what can I say.
