Fu Huo Jie 2013- Evie Joy

 MiMi sent us a special package with some toys and candy so the kids received a large joint basket with the package items and a few local candies.  They loved it!  They don't have an American expectation of getting an entire Easter basket of candy to themselves so this is kinda nice we can just do whatever and they are thankful and happy with that.  Josiah loved the toys, Evie Joy loved the snacks and crafts!  If I say Evie Joy do you want a snack, she'll say "you got me Mommy!" and hop over to me!  She is all about her some snacks.  She thinks snacks is a food group.  I tried explaining otherwise!
 our friends came over Easter morning to celebrate with us...we had our story time and did some special crafts MiMi had sent.  Evie Joy actually did crafts almost all day!  She loves crafts! 
 Easter lunch at our house with local friends...of course Evie Joy was not too excited at all about eating this!  She would much rather have rice or noodles or snacks!
 I love these- so sweet, Evie Joy giving our friend Clarissa some kisses!  They enjoy playing with Clarissa, she is always willing to be the bad guy so they can team up on her! 

 Evie Joy was excited that one of the gifts to open during our Easter game was a doctor's set which of course the person who opened it gladly let Evie Joy keep!  She was anxious to give Panda a check up!

 Evie Joy loved dying eggs, she may have dyed at least one entire dozen herself...She was all about mixing colors and really never was quite finished...
 Evie Joy was so excited to give out candy to her class.  I had prepared something for her teachers but she asked specifically if she could please give her classmates candy too!  So, we went extra early so we could!  I love how her heart is growing and becoming more and more sensitive to spiritual things.  Recently she has expressed concerned that her teacher wears a false god.  And she asks me really good questions like, "Mommy, why doesn't God just jump inside of everyone?" and " What does it mean to be born again?" 
Hugging one of her teachers while chomping on some jelly beans!
