Easter Week


We had a special week celebrating Easter! We pretty much followed this guideline, and I enjoyed hearing from a couple of you who did some of these things as well! Did you begin any new traditions this year? I hope you all had a wonderful week remembering Jesus' sacrifice and resurrection!

PS: Can you see the girls cute hair accessories? My friend Michele made them - hop over and check out her cute creations! Her prices are reasonable and she is great at custom orders!

Monica,
Your easter week celebration photos looked fabulous. Looks like your kiddos will have wonderful memories of what Easter is all about and traditions they will share with their children. What a wonderful legacy you are creating.

P.S. They look so sweet in their Easter finest. : )

I love your girls dresses. They are so cute.

I made "He is risen" biscuits with my boys on Saturday morning (I knew Sunday would be hectic to get to church). They enjoyed listening to the story that went along with making them.

Thank you so much for all of your ideas! We used many of your ideas, as well as making our own tomb. We wound up making a paper-mache tomb and covered it with homemade playdough. The girls used one of their dolls as Jesus and we wrapped him and put him in the tomb. It really helped them understand when we got up Sunday morning and the tomb was empty!

What an intentional celebration of the history of Easter. In your pics, I see the representation of the past, present, and traditions that will hold fast for many years to come.
Beautiful.

Thanks for doing this encouraging blog! My mom just found it and told me about your Spring party...I said, "I had a Spring party! No one has Spring parties!" I'm excited to find someone with so many interests the same as me and I look forward to getting some great ideas from you!
