Our Easter 2016...no storm!!

Started last week...cleaning windows...


Ooh dont worry, these are special windows..it's not broken! 


Love them!




   Collecting lots of eggs to dye and hide.










We made deviled eggs,


And picked up our favorite cookies from a local bakery.

Made an egg tree. I found these beautiful lighted branches discontinued at Hobby Lobby. And the eggs at the Goodwill.



And made a cross spice cake, brown like the cross and homemade cream cheese frosting.


Found some beautiful egg coloring books at Walmart for Genna. Her and Knox both received Bible covers.


I am so lucky with the Goodwill.



Brenden's books above. I never got him a Catholic baby record book, he has one now, I will fill in with notes I have been taking on my calendars for years now.


I found these bible covers on Amazon. I measured our bibles here at home. I just went bigger in the end. It gives them room to store pencils or notes as well.


Even little Zoe Zoe (pronounce with only a long O, for the sake of her nickname,  rhymes with Joe, her real name isn't pronounced that way) got a book, Brambly Hedge, and sock monkey. On Valentine's day this year which our family celebrated about two weeks early to avoid Lent, Brenden desperately wanted to give Zoe something. So he took Genna's old sock monkey and wrapped it. Genna was generous in letting him "give it". This little monkey will replace it so Genna can have hers back.

The crown of thorns now a nest full of eggs.



We woke up to a landscape covered in white like nature's baptismal garment. We had been outside enjoying summer like weather the day before. And even today the day ended comfortable where we could enjoys short sleeves and no wind and hunt eggs happily without jackets. Our weather is bipolar in Kansas. 



Happy Easter! He has risen!


(I have about 5 or 6 good pictures of Brenden being a turkey) go figure the one good one is out of focus...)  Our parish is so fun. There is a statue of the Resurrected Jesus at the very top of the altar, and when the Gloria is sung and the bells are rung during it, the curtain is ripped back to reveal the statue of the Resurrected Jesus. I'll have to add the picture in here, I don't know why I didn't think to take it before. Our church is old school...I love the old traditions at mass. It really keeps your attention where it should be.
 In case you didn't see what happened to us last year...it was quite an Easter!
