This is only a week late, that isn't too bad, is it? LOL It's been a very busy week to say the least.
We had a great Easter! Easter is the one holiday that we tend to stay home and just celebrate with our little family. Not every year, mind you, but most years. This year I had to sing at our church so that made our decision for us.
The fun started on Saturday with Egg Decorating. I came across a great idea on pinterest using this:
Hey! Jen Renee and was too easy to pass up. I also figured that my kids are so little if it was a fail, they wouldn't notice :-) It mixed up much easier than the dies and it smelled SOOOO good. The blog author gives a great color tutorial so you can see what each color of Kool-Aid looks like.
Sunday morning dawned dreary and rainy but doesn't that symbolize Easter? (On a side note - during Pastor's message he talked about how fitting it was to wake up to a morning like that; then as he was talking about later in the day when Jesus arose - the sun starting shining through the church windows -it was so awesome!) We had thought about going to the Easter Breakfast at church but 3 1/2 hours is a little long for the kids at this point so instead we hung at home until time for church. (Breakfast, Sunday School, Church . .. )
At church on Sunday, I had the privilege to sing twice. First, I sang an Old Quartet song by Brian Free and the Assurance called I'm doing this for You.
Then, I also was able to sing in a ladies quartet and we sang another old song called The Easter Song
Both great songs!!
I had to share this photo too - the boys made these awesome crafts in Kids Korner during church.
When we got home, we gave the boys their Easter Baskets. It's important to us to save the "eggs and candy" for after church because the real reason for the day IS Jesus Christ. Not that we won't do things differently when they are older but right now, it is the way we like to do things :-)
Right after this, we had a snack of Cheese, Crackers, Salami and fruit to hold us over until I could get dinner ready.
We ended our day with an Easter Egg Hunt.
We had an awesome Easter - it was a great time with the boys and they are still talking about the things we did.
