Christ the Lord is Risen Today...


Our Holy Week celebration began at Falling Spring Presbyterian's child's "Walk through Holy Week." Church members, parents, and volunteers reenacted the story of the Passion in a simple, yet vivid manner including story, song, actions, interactions, drama, and props.
Before and after the walk they had egg dying, crafts, and cookie decorating.

Definitely not winning "mom of the year" for this shot: my son, standing on a chair with a knife in his hand. ;)

Tobes decorating

Coop chowing down (this kid loves my camera ;)

"Jesus" (in the red cape) entering Jerusalem on a donkey with the palm branches waving!

Partaking in the Last Supper

The "disciples" in the garden of Gethsemene (I missed them pretending to sleep)

The "walk" ended with an egg hunt symbolizing the new life we celebrate in Christ's resurrection
This was Toby's first time hunting eggs solo!

This is "old hat" for Lydie lew. She has a blast!

Then came Lydia's preschool Easter celebration.
It started out with dying eggs. (Measuring, pouring, counting, stirring... and getting messy in the process)

Mimi & Gpa helped out with the games (and Tobias)

Tons of fun and a gorgeous day!

Little bunny foo foo

Ended with an egg hunt

Annual Good Friday Easter egg painting at the G's

(Yes, they are painting with kebab skewers - an upgrade from previous years' toothpicks)

The masterpieces

An attempt at cousins pics

The individuals worked out much better

We had to put Toby in a flower pot to contain him. ;)

Easter morning
Me and my PJed kiddos

You got it, Lydia, REJOICE!

Easter breakfast at church
Tobes decides to chow down on some crayons at the craft table

Yes, it's a little strange, but we hunt eggs in the graveyard

Lydia was done hunting for eggs and moved on to picking flowers

Final egg hunt of the year at Mimi and Pop-pop's

A perfect day for twirling. :)
