Resurrection Weekend and Easter Baskets
I just love Resurrection Weekend and all that in entails, don't you? We have communion on Thursday, family time/dinner on Good Friday, Easter egg-stravaganza for the kids at church on Saturday, Saturday night Easter service, and two services on Sunday morning, one of them will be working in the nursery with my Molly as my helper! I love being a nursery worker with her. It's so fun watching her serve and love on babies....who would not love that job!? Ok, many of us..it is tiring but oh so fun!
I'm not sure what I'm doing for the kids this year. We have 2 teenagers and an 11 year old..the Easter basket thing is getting a little boring with the candy and gum etc. so I'm trying to get creative on what to do. Gift cards, money...books?? I don't know! Our entire married life, I have done Easter morning alone since Darren leaves early for church. He does help me put the baskets together and we take pictures and play Easter bunny (even though we have never taught that, we pretend, ha) together! It's just a new, strange, yet fun season for me (us) My kids aren't really into buying new Easter outfits anymore either. I would love to throw my girls in some white tights and buy them Easter bonets. : )
