LaPiS: Easter Egg Hunt


A belated blessed Easter to all! πŸ˜€

Given our “special” circumstances here in the ultra-conservative kingdom (where all non-Moslem celebrations are not recognized and officially prohibited), I thought that our Easter activities would be limited to these…

These are the ten eggs we all painted as a family.Β  I later hid these in various places inΒ our homeΒ for the kids to find.Β  To make it more fun and exciting for our “gremlins”, hubby and IΒ also gave small prizes (i.e., different variants of Hershey’s Kisses) to our threeΒ “egg hunters”Β – to eldest son who got the most number of eggs, to second son who painted the “most originally-designed” egg and to our diva-lette for painting her first-ever Easter egg! 😎

Little did we know though that another “surprise” was actually in store for us on Easter evening.Β  What we thought was justΒ a joint dinner birthday party for our friends Doms and Cher from DFS (or Desert Fox Shooters – hubby’s photography club) turned out to be a bigger, better and more fun “Easter-themed” celebration for all of us! Heck, even the Easter Bunny made a special appearance! (For more on this, check out our friend Ann’s post here).

And here’s what the kids brought home from that “Egg-siting Easter Egg-spedition”…

I can only thank God for allowing us (especially our kids) to experience the joy of Easter even in what we thought was a “holiday-forsaken” place.Β  Only shows that the Lord truly works in amazing ways!

May the blessings of Easter continue to renew and refresh us the whole year through! πŸ™‚ Happy LaPiS to all!
