Sorry for my blogging absence! Here are some pictures of how we observed Holy Week:
|Hot Cross Buns on Friday morning|
|A Resurrection Garden on Friday night (I placed figurines in it on Sunday morning--didn't get a picture of that, either)|
|Easter baskets we made on Saturday|
On Friday we had a Plumbing Incident, and I completely forgot to cover the crosses, etc. I also did not decorate much at all (beyond some tulle and cut flowers). Check out your local craft/Hobby Lobby/fabric store for discount remnants and clearance items. I bought a bunch of gauzy black fabric and about 4 yards of white tulle for under $3. I also found some gold (3") letters I am going to use to make an Alleluia! banner for next year.
(If you ever have a Plumbing Incident, especially the toilet kind, set up little preschool chairs just outside the bathroom and your toddlers will watch Dad work FOR HOURS. They just sat there quietly and especially liked 1) the hole under the toilet 2) the toilet cracking 3) getting a new toilet--there were requests for pink, but we settled on white.)
