This Easter was the first one that we were able to talk to the boys about the meaning of the Holiday and have them begin to make some connections of why we celebrate! As it only seemed natural to continue the traditions that my parents began, we began the day with the boys waking up to three Easter baskets in a row. Underneath each basket was a brand new Bible for each boy. The boys have loved and loved their first Bibles so much that we had completely lost the story of Creation and a few stories in between. The boys had also begun to memorize the stories. They could say just about every last word in each sentence. So we decided what a great time to give them new Bibles than on the day that we set aside to focus on celebrating Christ's life, death, and Resurrection. They were pleased to find little treats in their eggs and M took only a minute before he had his dad reading to him out of his new Bible. K read to the boys the Easter story, then it was breakfast, getting dressed, and off to church.
This is K reading to the boys when
they first found their baskets and Bibles.

It is fun knowing that the boys will always have each other to do these childhood adventures with, but there is something special about having friends too. The boys have acquired some very good friends in their earlier years already. Sora and Kira were born at the same hospital and stayed at the same NICU as the boys. We have enjoyed gathering with their family for play dates and the boys adore their baby brother Kei as well. They have also become very special friends with Isabel and her baby brother Isaac. Isabel goes to church with us and is a very independent and loving girl. These friends have been a blessing to us.

The girls are so kind and well behaved when they come over. K and I really enjoy visiting with their mom and dad too.

The boys look forward to play dates with Isabel. She brings enthusiasm to everything she does.
