The pictures above are ones I drew for our sons who were not able to have Easter with us. Drawing is really a new creative pursuit for me and I rarely get to do any, but I do enjoy it when I have a chance. Obviously I am still learning though.
We did consider not having virtually any chocolate this year to avoid the after effects of all that sugar from the chocolate. However when you do the dollar comparison of what we could give chocolate wise to what we could afford to give them say a book and a small gift like wise it just does not work out for us. And frankly I think our children love the fact they get a chocolate haul for Easter as it is the only time of year they get a modest amount all of their own, ie no sharing.
the crown of thorns becomes a crown of beauty.
Each year the children look forward to this part of the setting up of the tomb!
The Easter table set for breakfast with each persons personal Easter basket and Felt Pocket Egg
This is our first incomplete family photo of cause new babies don't count...........
These were our Caterpillars we put into our Easter baskets on Holy Saturday by each of us before we make the Resurrection cookies
And there you have it, our Easter (well some of it anyway) in a nutshell, to be sure a large nutshell indeed, but finished for another year at least.
I pray your own celebration of this special time was one of great joy and peace!
Blessings to you and your homes,
