Happy Easter!!

How do you explain the concept of Jesus' death and resurrection to a three-year-old? That was the question Josh and I were faced with as we celebrated Easter this weekend. We began by reminding Abigail what Christmas was all was the day that Baby Jesus was born. Then the conversation went a little like this:

Mommy: "Easter is a fun time to get dressed up, hide and hunt eggs, and eat a little candy (emphasis on "little"!), but more importantly, Jesus died and Easter is the day that He came alive again."

Abigail: "Why?" (that was a shocker!)

Mommy: "Jesus came alive again because God told him to." (I know, I know...but it was the best I could do.)

Abigail: "Well, I hope he obeyed the first time!"

Can you tell what we're working on at our house? :-)
