Kourey Tells About Easter

Kourey came home from school with six bright plastic eggs in a gold spray-painted half of an egg carton. She was so excited to tell me what the eggs were for that she couldn’t wait to get home, even though I had been warned about Egg 2 and told her to please not open the eggs in the car.

As soon as she got home, she gathered the family around her to tell about the eggs and the meanings of their contents. She was so excited that she asked to video the third telling. And here it is.

She shares a few different details each time, as she is truly sharing a story versus reciting a lesson, but there is simplicity in the story from these six.

Egg 1 – a flower, to remind us that God created every part of earth, and all the beauty.

Egg 2 – dirt, to represent how sin makes us dirty, and apart from God

Egg 3 – a cross, to show how Christ came to clean us from that sin by dying on the cross

Egg 4 – a rock, to symbolize the boulder rolled back from the tomb where Jesus was buried

Egg 5 – nothing, to illustrate how the tomb was not only open, but empty, because Christ is not dead; he arose

Egg 6 – a mirrored heart gem, to reflect the reason God would do all that – His precious love for me

Happy Easter from the Dohls.


Sweet Easter Sisters


Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!

Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia!

Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!

Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!

Kaitlyn wasn’t really in to having her picture made, but she was all about the candy and hat the Easter Bunny left in the basket.

Easter Egg Hunt

The day before Easter (that’s last Saturday for those of you keeping score at home) our church threw it’s first ever (at least since we’ve been here) Easter Egg Hunt. It was too big for the church; we had it at the local elementary school/fort (those things get combined a lot around here).

Happy (Early) Easter!

While Katherine was hosting the monthly Ladies’ Night, Keith was serving and protecting the city of Richmond, and Anja was studying the night away, Auntie Kris took Kaitlyn and Kourey out for some pre-Easter funnery.

And she was nice enough to buy a few copies of the picture for us, too! (Seriously, Kris is the best)
