Easter 2012

I hope that you all had a wonderful and blessed Easter day.  We have spent the week preparing for this morning.  As a family we were able to attend all Holy Week masses (what a blessing) and this morning the kids were more than happy to be at Easter mass.  After mass we headed over to my in laws and had a good day with family and friends.  The kids ate, played and were just delighted.  I wanted to share just a little about what we've been doing the last couple of days.

We finished adding our crosses to our Lent board. 

Really enjoyed our new Easter books.

Yesterday, the kids enjoyed their annual tradition of egg dyeing.  Grandma came over and helped out with the fun.

My intent was to get some nice natural dyeing done, but, alas, I just didn't get to my shopping list on time.  I have to say though, the kids really did a great job at combining colors and making them look pretty natural:

And then my creative boys with space and camouflage colors:

This morning, the kids woke up to Easter baskets left by the bunny aka great aunt P..

And before heading to church the kids picked a few camellias to finish our Resurrection scene:

We also dug out our little wrapped package from our Lenten Box:

To finally sing and rejoice, He is Risen:

You Bless us oh Lord and we thank you;
Happy Easter to all of you!
